Introduction

What to call your new dog is always difficult, but rather than rush and assign any old 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 – its fun and again, easy to pronounce. So, have fun choosing a name!

Famous Dancer Dog Name Considerations

When choosing a name for your dog, be practical about it and chose one you will be happy to live as most dogs live for ten to fifteen years. Be careful that the name you choose is not offensive, remember you will be out in public and if it is a name you are hesitant to use, then why name your dog that way?

There are so many things to consider when choosing a name. You could base it on the dog's size, (Tiny or Tinkerbelle for a small dainty dog), or Brutus, Rock, or Beast for a massive solid dog such as a German Shepard or Rottweiler. Owners have often used the name to describe their dog's personality – think of Disney’s Goofy. It immediately brings to mind the loveable, goofy dog that usually got things all wrong. Then there is Scooby Doo whose slightly cowardly yet bumbling personality made us love him more. 

Other names such as Cujo can bring to mind the Steven King horror tale about a rabid dog. Cujo was a good natured St. Bernard who contracted the rabies virus and turns into a menancing killer dog. I like the name Cujo and have convinced myself that the dog was a nice dog before he was unlucky enough to get infected so that story connection wouldn’t bother me but each to their own on this one. If you are the owner of a dog, you are one of the luckiest people on this planet. Dogs are devoted, loyal and true companions. No pressure, but think about it carefully before you bestow a name on them. You will know the moment you hear a name whether it is good enough for your trusted companion.
