Introduction

The Great Dane is an easily recognizable breed of dogs due to its huge size and noble appearance. Also known as the “Apollo of Dogs” this gentle giant radiates elegance and power at the same time. It is also known for its skills in hunting and vigorous temperament. Despite its large size and imposing look, it is one of the sweetest and most behaved dogs around. With proper training and the right amount of TLC, it can easily become the perfect pet for your household. These very characteristics are the reason why Great Danes are a prevalent dog breed in America and all over the world.

Great Dane Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a name for your new Great Dane can be quite a tall order (no pun intended!) and must be taken seriously. Remember that whatever name you give your Great Dane, it will be the one he or she will be using throughout their lifespan. So, it is best to give your dog a great name that matches its unique traits.

The Great Dane is famous for its gigantic body, long strides and short coat of various colors. In contrast to their physical appearance, their temperament is calm and charming. All of these attributes can be used as inspiration for picking out a name for your new pup.

For male Great Danes, which can weigh up to 200 pounds, their ominous presence and athletic physique cannot be topped. Thus, it would be suitable to choose a name that reinforces their enormity. Their female counterparts are a bit tinier, tipping the scales at about 130 pounds. Female Great Danes deserve a more amiable name that still highlights their strength. A good example would be the name “Babylon”, a Biblical tower known for being really tall. This name would work for either a male or female pup. Alternatively, you may also give your dog a German name, which would sound really cool considering that the breed originated from Germany.
