Italian Greyhound Dog Name Considerations

There is a lot to consider when choosing a name for an Italian Greyhound. The first thing that should be contemplated is the breed's history. Italian Greyhounds were widely popular in Italy in the middle ages, hence the name Italian Greyhound. If you want to keep your pup's name in line with their roots, an Italian name is the way to go!

Italian Greyhounds are smaller dogs which is another thing to think about when naming your pup. A name that means small or petite would definitely be fitting. Of course, this breed is also known for their speed. Consider a name that means fast or speedy. As they are distance running dogs, a name that signifies endurance is also a path you could go down when choosing a name. You can also opt to name your Italian Greyhound after a famous dog of the same breed, for example, Brussels the 2016 National Dog show winner.

Of course, when naming your dog you should always consider thinks like color and personality. Yet, with Italian Greyhounds, you can take these typical naming aids and add an Italian flair. Name your baby Greyhound Bambino or your cuddly sweetheart, Pia (which means just that in Italian!). So many great, fitting, Italian names to choose from!
