Introduction

Unbelievable as it sounds, the Leonberger is a giant dog resulting from a mix of three dog breeds – Saint Bernard, Newfoundland and Great Pyrenees. The dog is as impressive as its lineage; it has a jumbo-sized build, looks of a lion and a set of skills that make it a force to be reckoned with. The dog breed was named after the city of Leonberger in Germany, which is where it originated. Aside from its remarkable size, the Leo, as it is fondly referred to, has high levels of intelligence and energy. Owning a Leo takes great commitment, plenty of socialization and consistent positive reinforcement. As a reward, you will get a loyal guard dog, a fun companion and a loving part of your family.

Leonberger Dog Name Considerations

One of the exciting parts about owning a new dog, especially one like the Leonberger, is coming up with a name that will fit your dog well. Leos have many distinctive features, physical or not, that you can use as a basis for choosing a name. When coming face to face with a Leonberger, the first thing that one will notice is its huge, almost gigantic, build. Therefore, a cool name or term that symbolizes power and strength would be an awesome fit. A unique example would be the name “Zeus”, named after the ruler of the Olympian gods in Greek mythology.

Another source of inspiration for your dog’s name is its coat. The Leo has a majestic double coat (with a black melanistic mask) that comes in a variety of colors, including all sorts of color mixes such as red-brown, red, lion-yellow and sand. Some Leos may have a few patches or markings of other colors. You can use your Leo’s coat color to brainstorm for a name.

Some pet owners also opt to keep things authentic and choose a name based on their dog’s country of origin. In this case, the Leonberger was originally bred in Germany. So, it would be fitting to choose a unique and expressive German name or any reference to German culture as a name for your new Leo.
