Introduction

Some dog owners adopt a new dog during July or learn their puppy or dog was born in July, sometimes on the 4th of July, which is America's Independence Day.  Other dog owners just like the Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum movie, Independence Day.  Either way, these dog owners may choose to give their dog a name inspired by the Independence Day.  This is a broad theme where people can draw from history, the movie, words associated with freedom, or the motif of American Independence, like the Banner or Stars and Stripes.

Independence Day Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a patriotic dog name for your newly adopted puppy or dog under the Independence Day theme requires a little consideration.  You may want to give your dog a historically significant name, like Betsy, Hamilton, or Abigail.  Alternately, you may want to provide your pooch with a movie inspired name like Jasmine, Pullman, or Goldie (after Jeff Goldblum, of course).  Another consideration to make is in a patriotic motif, like the colors red, white, and blue.  Under this influence, you might name your dog Ruby, Bianca, or Azule.  If you have a pair of puppies you want to keep together, you might consider a joint naming theme like Stars and Stripes.  

When it comes to dog colors, sizes, and breeds owners have to take little consideration.  Some names do suggest coat color tones, like Ruby, Rufus, and Bianca but generally, these the names are universal.  The one consideration a dog owner might want to take is in the breed of dog or rather, lack thereof.  America is known as a melting pot of peoples and cultures from all parts of the world, so shelter dogs and mongrel mix-breeds in need of a safe harbor are perfect for this theme since they represent many breeds in one dog.
