Introduction

If you love the fantasy genre and have recently acquired a new pup then you may find inspiration from the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  J. R.R. Tolkien released the first Lord of the Rings novel in 1954, along with the second book ,and then the final instalment was released a year later. These epic fantasy novels were turned into a trilogy of movies with the first movie being released in 2001, the second in 2002, and the third in 2003.  The novels proved very popular and you can’t help but find yourself drawn into the fantasy world.  If you’re a fan, then why not name your dog in the spirit of this epic fantasy?

Lord of the Rings Dog Name Considerations

There are many different things to consider when choosing the right moniker for your new addition. Remember to take your time when choosing and do your research.  Write down names that you like so you have a number to work from and you can narrow down your choices.  If you’re a Lord of the Rings fan, then why not read on for more inspiration from the male and female lists below, inspired by Lord of the Rings. 

Considerations to make when naming your dog, can be things like size, breed, color, and temperament.  If you have a white or cream brave pooch, you could go for Legolas, or Gimli the red-headed dwarf may inspire you for your red-headed pooch.  If your dog is elegant and humble, but dark in color, you may consider the name Aragorn, or for a beautiful, dark pooch you may choose Aragorn’s true love, Arwen.  If you have a large pooch, you may want to use a name like Sharku, the name of an Orc, or you could choose a hobbit inspired name for your tiny four-legged friend. 

There is lots of inspiration to be gained from the trilogy, and with so many heroes it is difficult to choose. Shout out the names you like to your dog and see if your pooch responds to any of your selected names!
