Jindo Dog Name Considerations

 Jindo dogs are one of just a handful of breeds of dogs that were originally developed in Korea, along with the Sapsali and the Dosa, so Korean names or names that honor Korean culture and values can make extremely appropriate names for these animals. There are many ways in which to select the perfect name from a list of cultural names like this one. Many people choose to pick a name from the tradition that describes the dog's personality or physical appearance such as Chung-Ui, a name that means loyalty, Sun-Hi, meaning obedience and joy, Jin-Ho, which means golden hero, or Myung-Ok, meaning bright pearl. Other individuals may prefer to honor the culture by picking a name that refers to the history of the breed, such as Saseum, the Korean word for deer, or Sutwaeji, the Korean word for boar, both customary quarry for hunting Jindo dogs. Another option is to use a word that represents the culture in other ways, such as Soju or Bokbunja, both alcoholic drinks that developed in Korea, or names such as Chopail, Chuseok, Dongji, or Yudu, each one a name that refers to popular festivals that are held in Korea each year.
