Introduction

Greenland is an autonomous constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. While it is physically a part of North America, Greenland has been associated both politically and culturally with Norway and Denmark for more than 100 years. Considered the world’s largest island, three-quarters of Greenland is covered by the only permanent ice sheet outside of Antarctica. The population of Greenland is around 56,000 making it the territory with the least dense population in the world.

When seeking the perfect name for your new pooch, turning to the country of Greenland is bound to give you unique ideas, one of which may be just right.

Greenland Dog Name Considerations

One of the first responsibilities of getting a new dog is to choose a name. That can feel overwhelming; after all, where should you go to find just the right moniker for your new friend? As it would be nice to find a name that suits your pooch while also making you smile every time you say it, a good way to start would be to take a look at things that have meaning to you, including places.

For example, choose a place that you feel strongly about. This can be a place where you have lived, visited, or dream of going to one day. Once you have a place in mind, go ahead and take a closer look at it. If it is a country, consider the cities and towns within it. You can also explore any bodies of water and mountains that the place has to offer. While you are at it, take a look at the food available and any people of interest who have called the place “home”. As you look at your place, make a note of things that could make a good name for your canine companion. Once you have a list, you can look closer at each name, choosing one that you feel best suits your pooch.

Should Greenland be a place of interest, you will notice that despite the country’s small population, it offers a myriad of possibilities when it comes to names.
