Introduction

Galicia is an autonomous community within the country of Spain. Situated in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula, it has a population of just over 2 million people. It is close to the border of Portugal, which is why there are a few similarities in terms of culture. Galicia boasts an impressive 1660 km of coastline, including some islets and islands such as the Salvora, Cies Islands and A Illa de Arousa. The official language of the community is Galician, an Indo-European language spoken by around 2.4 million individuals, mostly within Galicia. It is also commonly used by those in nearby Spanish regions such as Castile and Leon and Asturias.

Galician Dog Name Considerations

Are you getting a new dog? Congratulations, you are in for a treat! Dogs are some of the most compassionate and loyal creatures in the entire world. Becoming a furparent is the stepping stone to a life enriched by laughter and love. It is also like adding a new member to your family.

When you get a new dog, the first thing you need to take care of is their name. More often than not, dog owners want to get creative and try to come up with a name that is clever and special. Choosing a name in a language other than your own is a great way to cook up a unique moniker for your pooch. For example, the Galician language is pretty much similar to the Spanish language save for a few tweaks in the spelling and pronunciation. It is also spoken by a smaller population, which means that it is less likely for your dog to have a name that is similar to the other dogs around you.

One of the ways to choose a Galician name is to check out their meaning and compare it to your dog’s own attributes. There are several of them that can work well as a dog name. For instance, the Galician word “Branca” means “white”, which can be fitting for a white-coated dog. You can also go for the names of famous Galicians. Some good examples include former football pro Julio Iglesias and his son, pop superstar Enrique Iglesias.
