Introduction

The Lapponian Herder is a beautiful, friendly, energetic, and intelligent dog breed that was originally created by the Sami people (also known as the Lapps) in Finland, where the dogs are known as Lapinporokoira. The breed's primary job was to herd reindeer for their owners and thus the nickname, "reindeer herders" was earned. The Lapponian Herder has been around long before the 1950's, but that was the year that they were officially accepted as a breed by the American Kennel Club and from that point on, the dogs have been used in shows, herding competitions, as working dogs, and as family companions.

Lapponian Herder Dog Name Considerations

If you have a Lapponian Herder than you have definitely come to the right place in order to find a name that will serve your pup well. The names on this list come from the Sami people in Finland and are not only beautiful, but also extremely unique. Their meanings will serve in all areas of consideration for your Lapponian Herder, whether that be for appearance, personality, or markings. Let's take a look at just a few examples to get started! The female name, "Aile" is short and sweet but has quite the history behind it. This moniker is derived from the Old Norse name "Helgi" which means "holy". So if you have a sweet and gentle Lapponian Herder, than a name that means "holy" would be perfect. For the males, "Edo" is a name that originates from Old English and means "wealth"; so for a Lapponian Herder that is rich in love and perhaps energy, a name such as this could be an excellent fit. Both of these names are short and uncomplicated, but if you are looking for something more complex, you could consider titles such as "Lemek", "Seita", "Lohcca", or "Gealbu" which are all beautiful and interesting.
