Introduction

Oh, Iceland, the land that gave us Bjork and lagoon spas. We surprisingly have a lot to thank Iceland for, mainly the ability to still be motivated enough to continue living well even in low, low temperatures. They even have Reykjavik, where you can go shopping, hit a coffee bar on the way home, and enjoy some night life if that's more up your speed. So, no wonder you have an Icelandic Sheepdog! Not only are they gorgeous dogs, they're very loyal, friendly, were brought to Iceland by the Vikings themselves. Now that is history! Check out these 60 names specially selected for Icelandic Sheepdogs, and get to brainstorming!

Icelandic Sheepdog Dog Name Considerations

There are a few things to keep in mind when naming a dog. Things like size, breed, color, overall appearance, personality and preferences (favorite toys and games, or even treats and food). These characteristics are great because they insightfully describe your dog, in this case, an Icelandic Sheepdog.

Also, remember a few general things about this breed. Most Icelandic Sheepdogs are alert, inquisitive, active and energetic. They're the perfect active dog to join you on your daily exercise. They have a lifespan of 12 to 15 years, and they're known for being rather cheerful. In other words, your dog should be around for a long time, and be very much a part of your active life. Selecting a name that doesn't get tiresome, boring, old, or otherwise annoying is a good idea. You'll be saying it a lot, for about a decade and a half!

Also, since your dog is Icelandic, and has Viking ties, it would be smart to look to that for inspiration. Viking facts and trivia, Icelandic culture and locations. Famous Icelandic artists, or food. It can all be treated as inspiration. At the very least to get into the right mindset. So take a look at these 60 names and let's get to it!
