Introduction

Naming a dog is a big responsibility. After all - they are going to be a close companion for many happy years, so you want a name that you can live and love for that long. If you don't know where to start, think about your dog. What is this creature like that you have chosen to share your home - what is special about them? Are they going to be a large dog or a small dog? Are they active or quite mellow, do they bark or are they silent? Even the dog's color can act as a guide to choosing a name. Take a grey dog, for example; you might call it Misty because of the silver grey color that mist often has. Or you might choose the name Phantom, for the cartoon hero who wore a grey suit. Ghost is another name that a grey dog could own quite easily. 

What ever the name you finally choose, make sure you understand the meaning of the name. You don't want to find out after several happy months that your dog's name means something offensive. Foreign names are cool, but again, make sure you understand the meaning. We have compiled a list of possible names for the canine that is a steely or slate grey. Our research shows the meaning of the name and even its origin in some cases, so you know what the title means and perhaps can link the name directly to a characteristic seen in your new addition. This list takes the hard work out of the choosing of a name. All you do is sit down, curl up with your new dog or puppy, and go over our list. Before you know it, a name will leap from the page, and you will just know it is the right one.

Grey Dog Name Considerations

 "What shall I call my dog?", is a lament often heard from new dog owners. They say they don't have any imagination and the stress of choosing a name is almost worse than having your teeth pulled! But there is no need for alarm; the world won't stop if the name you choose doesn't hit the number one favorite spot on the list. You just need to choose a name that is simple to say, one that is short and easy for your dog to understand, and you have to like it. Why would you call your treasured companion a name that didn't resonate well with you? Having a list such as this one will help those that have problems in this department. We have compiled a range of names for both male and female dogs that takes all the hard work out of selecting a name for you. This list is designed for the grey dog, taking his or her appearance as the inspiration for the name. You want something that suits your dog's personality or appearance so that the name fits well. A small grey pup may suit the name Pepper, especially if he is energetic. Is your dog constantly on the go? How about Jet, referring to the jet that streams across the sky? Classy, as in classic grey or Rain, referring to the grey weather could be cute monikers for your original pup.
