Finnish Dog Name Considerations

If you managed not to become a puddle on the floor from melting because of Lennu’s cuteness, it is time to think about the possible names your lovely doggo will carry. First off, you can snag his actual name and give it to your doggo, especially if you own a Boston Terrier. Alternatively, you can name them Sauli, after Lennu’s owner, the Finnish president. Another great option is Suomi, an exciting name and actually, the word Finns use to refer to themselves, their country, and their language.

Or, you can let beautiful words be your inspiration. Take the Finnish word for wind for example – Tuuli. It can make a perfect name! Aurinko is an excellent moniker for a pup and also the Finnish word for sun. Tahti means star, and Rakkaus means love – both fantastic as dog names as well, especially if you are an owner of a mysteriously lovable doggo. If you want to name your pup Lovely, why not do that in Finnish and use the name Ihana? Or, you can always go the simple way and name your puppy Koira, which in Finnish means simply – dog.
