Introduction

Halloween is one of the most celebrated holidays turned secular.  Originally, the holiday was to celebrate the souls that passed on the eve of All Saint's Day, November 1st.  Its spooky meaning allowed for the secular holiday of Halloween to develop as we know it today.  On Halloween, children of all ages dress up in costumes and go door to door to receive candy and treats from their neighbors.  Adults too, whether they have children or not, enjoy the festivities.  Lawns are decorated in spooky fashion, and even the dog gets a costume to wear on Halloween.  Some people enjoy the holiday so much they give them dog a Halloween inspired name or, they may adopt a dog around the holiday and want to give him or her a Halloween-themed name to remember the big adoption day forever.

Halloween Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Naming your dog after a Halloween inspired theme does not require any special considerations beyond typical size, color, and breed, and just about every dog can find a Halloween name to fit.  Dogs with black or dark coats have the advantage when it comes to giving your dog a Halloween inspired name.  However, many names also fit white-coated dogs, such as Casper, Ghost, Fang, Ash, and Cobweb.  Red colored dog names include Cinnamon, Pumpkin, and Spice.  Your dog's size may also inspire a particular Halloween name, like Beast; whereas some names fit breeds well, like Pugsley for a Pug, Jack for a Jack Russell Terrier, and Bluebeard for any black or gray-bearded breed, like the Schnauzer or the Scottish Terrier.  If dog owners are choosing a Halloween inspired name based on the time of year that they adopted their new puppy or dog, they may want to consider names like Autumn or October.  If spooky isn't sounding like a good fit for your dog, also consider themed names like Candy, Luna, and Tootsie.  Finding the right name for your dog takes time and thoughtful consideration.  When you finally choose a name, be sure you and your family are comfortable with your dog's new moniker.  You will be using it for a long time.
