Introduction

The Finnish Lapphund, or Lappie as breed fanciers call them, are medium sized, spitz-type dogs with thick, luxurious coats. The Lappie is a Nordic breed and is wary of strangers but is friendly and happy with their family. The Finnish Lapphund is not a popular breed in the United States, but is very popular as a family companion as well as reindeer herder in their native land. When you decide to add a Lappie to your family, you will soon discover that there are not many breeders in the United States. Once you have found a Finnish Lapphund, the next step is finding just the right name for your new puppy.

Finnish Lapphund Dog Name Considerations

The Finnish Lapphund is a fun-loving, loyal, medium sized dog that loves spending time with their family. If you can handle all of that Nordic coat, this just may be the right dog for you. Adding a Lappie to your family may be the easiest part of the entire process. Since these guys are a spitz breed, they will be somewhat stubborn and training will most likely be a true test of your patience. Finding the right name to fit your new puppy may also be a little difficult, especially if the entire family is helping pick their name. Many Lappie owners like to pay tribute to the dog's homeland and look for strong Finnish names that will also be easy to pronounce for the entire family. If you do decide to pick a Finnish name, you can be pretty confident that no other dogs in your neighborhood will have the same name. Some Finnish names are very similar to names that you are probably used to such as Roscoe, Kirby and Nelli. But there are also some names that may make you wonder if you could really pull off naming your dog that, such as Kaapo, Iisakki, Tyyne and Ulla.
