Introduction

Are you a free spirit filled with passion and love for everything in the world? If you have the heart of a hippie then you might want to name your beloved four-legged pooch after the subculture of the 1960s that made flowers, peace, free speech, women’s rights, the sexual revolution, marijuana, unconventional music, love, and freedom a counterculture movement. From the late 1960s to the 1970s was the era of the hippie but even today it lives on, especially in areas like Oregon, California, and many other liberal/left leaning areas of the country.

The hippie movement was about empowering the youth in America. It took hold on college campuses across the United States. Many were fed up with the politics of the day and they vehemently protested the Vietnam War. The Haight-Ashbury part of San Francisco and the East Village of New York City became a couple of the hot spots in the nation for hippies to converge. 

The hippies of the era wanted to focus on a true cultural movement and steer away from politics. Their slogan, “Make love, not war” quickly become the mantra of all things hippie. They stood up for peace and love for everyone and everything. Their entire ideology stood out in stark contrast to the toxic war mentality and stifled freedoms of the times.

The youth of America started dropping out of school and hitting the roads to join other like-minded individuals in the pursuit of finding themselves and discovering who they were from a spiritual standpoint. Many hippies even headed to India and Pakistan to explore and trek the infamous Hippie Trail. The young hippies objected not only verbally to the repression of the earlier generations, but also physically they stood out. They grew their hair long, donned blue jeans, colorful shirts, openly smoked marijuana, rejoiced in rock music, showed public displays of affection, wore flowers in their hair, and displayed peace signs. Many opted to go barefoot. Their automobiles they typically painted in outlandish psychedelic colors.

Many hippies had four-legged sidekicks that tagged along on their adventures. Their beloved dogs were just as much a part of their lifestyle as anything else.

If you miss the bygone years of your youth as a hippie or you are simply a young Bohemian who still clings to the hippie persona, picking a name for your canine to reflect your interests should not be too difficult.  There are many tags and monikers associated with the historic time that would be a fantastic name for your pooch.

I like old fashion names for my dogs. Her name was Poo. Ugh... why would some one name their dog after a body elimination process.
