Khmer Language Dog Name Considerations

When you give your dog a common name, you don’t have to worry about research usually. You know the name works and probably what it means because people use it so often. When you get into unusual territory such as with Khmer language dog names, then you need to get serious about your homework. The naming process can become quite intense.

The first, and most important, consideration in the naming process is a word or name’s meaning. Some words in Khmer sound beautiful, but their definitions are horrible. Take the name Akrak, for example. Akrak translates to evil in English, and what kind of dog would be evil? If you like how a name looks, make sure you find out what it means to ensure it’s not offensive, insulting, or downright awful. Then you have to begin thinking about your dog’s gender. Many words and names are going to be unisex, but equally as many are not – even if they sound like they are. To avoid confusion, research a name thoroughly.

Breed, color, and personality can become quite dominating considerations when you begin looking for Khmer language dog names. Let’s say you have a Golden Labrador. Golden in the Khmer language is Meas, which would make a lovely dog name. If they are a fun dog, then that means Sabbay. That name, too, could be a great choice.

There are options galore when you look at different Khmer language dog names, but not all are going to work for you. Put time and effort into the consideration process.
