Introduction

The term Judeo-Christian highlights the unique relationship shared between two of the world's most prominent religions - Judaism and Christianity.  Both of these religions are thousands of years old, making them both two of the world's longest surviving religions, with Zoroastrianism being one of the few other religions that predates Judaism and Christianity. Throughout the millennia, many stories have been told about figures such as Jesus of Nazareth and King David of Bethlehem. It's those stories that we'll be delving into to glean a myriad of Judeo-Christian names that folks can give to their pets. Even if you're not a member of any Judeo-Christian religion, you'll likely find a number of interesting names that you might want to consider giving to your pet.

Judeo-Christian Legend Dog Name Considerations

Every time a poll has been conducted in the last few centuries, it has ranked Christianity as the world's most popular religion. In 2011, the Pew Research Center noted that there were roughly 2.19 billion people, worldwide, who have identified themselves as some denomination of Christian - be they Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, or Seventh Day Adventist or more. Based on those numbers alone, there's a high likelihood that many of our readers may be Christian and are already considering giving their pets names based on prominent figures in Judeo-Christian lore. 

For our readers who aren't Christian, there are still plenty of good reasons to give your dog a Judeo-Christian name. For starters, many of the names featured in the Bible are very symbolic - not just religiously so, but from an anthropological perspective as well. Adam is said to be the first human in the Bible, with his name becoming synonymous with the concept of being the first member of any group. If you're adopting a dog for the first time, you could name them Adam to underscore the significance of them being your first pet. Esther is one of the most prominent females figures in the Bible due to her wisdom and bravery. Her name would be a perfect choice to give to a female dog of any breed as a sort of token of good faith.
