Folk Music Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When thinking about names inspired by folk music, the first place you might look at is your parents’ record collection, or, alternatively, your own digital playlist. Paying an homage to your favorite musician is a great way to have a memorable and a meaningful name for your new canine best friend, so blast the tunes to your favorite song and let’s get to naming!

If you are feeling like you’d love to honor the very roots of folk, choose a name such as Carter, after the famous Carter Family whose music inspired the great musicians such as Bob Dylan. Other names from The Carter Family include Sara, Maybelle, and Alvin, all good choices if you are building a dog family of your own. Other musical icons such as Johnny Cash actually grew up listening to The Carter Family, therefore, it is safe to say that you cannot go wrong by choosing one of their names.

For those who are feeling adventurous and have a great sense of humor might find it hilarious to name their dog after one of the greatest folk musicians ever, Cat Stevens. Think about the scenario in your local dog park when you call after your pup and yell out “Cat! Come here boy!”
