Introduction

When you think about majestic dog breeds, one of the top examples that comes to mind is the Great Pyrenees. True to its name, the Great Pyrenees was once considered the royal dog in France. The breed was originally developed to protect flocks of sheep from potential predators. More than its athleticism and agility, it also has an imposing presence and a striking white coat that is sure to catch one’s eye. Nowadays, the Great Pyrenees is more of a watch dog for families and homes. It is naturally well-mannered but its guarding instincts may show when dealing with strangers or when provoked. However, with proper training, you will be rewarded with unconditional love and a companion for life.

Great Pyrenees Dog Name Considerations

The Great Pyrenees is an exceptional breed that has some really lovely qualities. Thus, owners of this breed must take careful considerations before bestowing a name on their new puppy. The word most frequently used to describe the breed is “majestic”, and truthfully so. That being said, it is appropriate to give your Pyrenees a name that sounds as regal as it looks. For example, you may give your male dog the name “King” or “Duke" or the name “Duchess” for a female one.

Another thing that makes the Great Pyrenees stand out is its thick, white coat. Picking a fitting name that describes or highlights the breed’s color is also a good idea. For instance, you may give your dog the name “Snow”, which is an appropriate choice given its snow-colored fur. Although rare, there are some Great Pyrenees with markings of other colors, which you may also use as a basis for a name.

Considering the origin of the breed is also a good way to come up with a name. While there are differing accounts of the Great Pyrenees’ history, it became most popular in France, when King Louis XIV declared it as the royal dog of France. The breed was also famously used as a guard dog for French nobility. Hence, it would be cool to choose a French name to go with your dog’s country of origin.

Andre the giant
Male
Great Pyrenees
Gary, WV

I wanted something French as a nod to the breeds origins, and something that wasn’t too cutesy. My son loves wrestling and it hit me “Andre the Giant” lol. But he has tons of cutesy nicknames though: Dre, Dre Dre, Dr. Dre, Dre Z, Drebo. He’s six months old and a goofball, but that protective instinct is strong. We ADORE him.
