Indian Dog Name Considerations

The perfect name for your doggo is just around the corner! India, as an inspiration, gives you so many possibilities for a great moniker. You can take Indian toponyms as a base, you can get inspired by Bollywood movies, or you can just find popular names in this country and use them as the name for your new pup. If you choose toponyms, some interesting choices may be Mumbai, Chennai, or Pune, after huge cities in India. If your pup is a special princess her new name can be Kolkata or Agra, again, after two big cities in this country. Ganges is a strong and proud name, after the river Ganges, and Goa is a popular beach destination with many fantastic parties and spiritual gatherings happening there.

And then there are Indian names. Some of the most popular choices are Kiaan, which means king or ancient, Shiva, after the god, Sahil, which means guide, and Additri, another name for the goddess Lakshmi. Speaking of Hindu goddesses, a fantastic name can be Radha, Krishna’s companion; Tulsi, the goddess associated with the basil plant, or Sita, the incarnation of Lakshmi. The goddess Kali is a representation of Shakti and she is the soul liberator, and Parvati is the wife of Shiva and the protector of mothers.
