Introduction

Some people are absolutely terrified of bugs of any kind, but some of us appreciate all that they do for the environment, how cool they look, and how we need their small existence in our world. Beautiful butterflies fill the air in spring, and fireflies light up our summer dusks. Sometimes insects can be a bit more annoying: termites chew up our homes, and hornets attack us if we approach their hives on our porches. You take the good with the bad. The same goes for our dogs; we love them to pieces, but sometimes they do things we simply can’t understand. They can be total sweethearts and so lovely one minute and little holy terrors the next! But we love them. Yes, we love and appreciate them fiercely.

Insect Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Choosing an insect inspired dog name can be very difficult, given that there is an overwhelming number of different kinds. The best thing to do is to think of your favorites, research the wonderfully exotic and strange varieties, and maybe even look up your official state insect or butterfly. Other than those courses of action, keep your eyes peeled for tiny, nearly-microscopic life all around you. Your new pup might even discover a bug or two. In fact, that may be the reason you’re here: your dog has shown an obsession with these crawlers and fliers, and you’re interested in landing a moniker that fits their unique trait!

Think of the bugs that are native to your area. Maybe a name like “Assassin,” “Stinker,” “Aphid,” or “Cicada” will work. If you’re looking for plays on insect titles, try “Pedey” for centipede, which bears resemblance to the more common Petey, or “Beddie” for bed bugs, which reminds us of the more popular name Betty. Further, tags like “Damsel,” “Mantis,” “Thrip,” “Antie,” “Thora,” and “Cade” are also adorable. You could even match your pet’s appearance with the appearance of a certain insect. For example, if your princess pooch has a red coat with black spots, you might go with “Ladybug.” We hope you find something that speaks to you in the guide below. Best of luck on landing an unforgettable insect title for your little fluffy bug-lover!
