Introduction

Fantasy stories come in a wide variety of forms; High Fantasy stories encompass tales that have rich and deep backstories and feature common tropes associated with the Fantasy Genre like knights, elves, dragons, and magic. Conversely, Low Fantasy refers to a wide umbrella of stories that have more traditional fantasy elements but also tend to blend more contemporary tropes; for instance, the knights in a Low Fantasy story may hail from a nation or kingdom that had actually, historically existed as opposed to a completely fictitious one. There's also Contemporary Fantasy stories, such as Harry Potter or the Percy Jackson series; these are fantasy stories that take place in modern times, typically in a common setting. These stories aren't afraid to have Unicorns or Minotaurs running around Los Angeles or London. These three genres of Fantasy are just a few of the many sub genres that exist, but they're among some of the most popular and will provide ample names for your new canine addition.

Fantasy Dog Name Considerations

The names of Fantasy characters often have an immense amount of effort and thought put into them. For instance, the names of the characters from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books were taken from languages that Tolkien spent years crafting and perfecting. If you're looking to give your dog a mythical, meaningful name, consider naming your pet after a character from a series where that amount of depth and attention to detail is commonplace in said series' naming conventions. All of the characters from Tolkien's Legendarium have well thought out names, so take your pick! 

Conversely, many characters from Fantasy stories have names that are also based off of people from the real world. More common than that, a great many Fantasy characters simply have names that phonetically sound like more traditional names from our contemporary society. Conan the Barbarian is probably one of the most famous and well known examples of this trend. The Cimmerian barbarian's name was directly taken from the Celtic name that means "high" or "wise" and can be just the name for a strong, proud dog. Harry Potter, the main character from J.K. Rowling's world famous book series, is a more straight forward example of this trend, as the stories initially take place in the 1990's.
