Introduction

Knowing what to call your new dog is always difficult, but rather than rush and assign a name, take a few hours or a day or two to think it over carefully. It will give you more time to get to know your dog better, and maybe find some characteristics in them that suit a certain style of name. Keep in mind a young puppy will do things at that age that they will grow out of (hopefully) as they mature. Traits such as eating anything they can get their teeth into may lend itself to the name Chomper, Munchkin, or even Cruncher. But as they grow they will change, so keep in mind Chomper may not suit your mature dog. Famous dancers can inspire dog names such as Bella (after The Beauty and the Beast Character) which suits a stylish, beautiful female dog. Its short and easy to say, and is complementary to the dog. Disco may suit a dog with a ton of energy – it's fun and again, easy to pronounce. So, enjoy choosing a name!

Famous Dancer Dog Name Considerations

When choosing a name for your dog, be practical about it and select one you will be happy to live with as most dogs live for ten to fifteen years. There are many things to consider when choosing a name. You could base it on the dog's size; for example, Tiny or Tinker Bell for a small dainty dog, or Brutus, Rock, or Beast for a massive solid dog such as a German Shepherd or Rottweiler. 

When thinking of a famous dancer, we typically think of gracefulness and flowing movements. A dog such as an Afghan Hound or a Saluki would suit this type of name. A sleek Greyhound or Whippet may bring the image of a dancer to mind as well. Your inspiration can come from many sources. Ballet is a beautiful art form that can be inspirational, and even just looking at the terms used within ballet can provide some original names. Avant means forward and Cabriole means a jumping movement. These titles can sound unique when bestowed upon your best friend. 

Your favorite style of dance can get you thinking along the lines of Tango, Disco, or Polka (which would be ideal for a Dalmatian with all its spots). Then there is the Mamba, Cha Cha, or Jive which have a masculine tone. Salsa, Hustle or even Flamingo (or Mingo) may work for your dog, as can Zumba. Dogs that are naturally lean, active and boisterous may suit a dance style tag. For a quieter dog, you may need to look into the dancer’s name to get one that suits. Something like Aria or Diva may suit a special female dog, or Fabio or Sergio may suit a male dog with athletic ability or skills.
