The Mandarin language is actually a dialect of the Chinese language and is spoken in China. They both have the same alphabet so reading the languages are the same, but when spoken out loud, they are different. But Mandarin is the most common dialect of Chinese, so it is most common in China. The Chinese language is beautiful and ancient, with the first written records of Chinese language dated back to the Shang Dynasty, which was more than 3,000 years ago. Either way, the Mandarin Chinese language is beautiful, and unlike the 26 characters that we have in our language, Chinese characters amount to over 20,000. Also, there are over 370,000 words in the Chinese language while we have only 171,476.

Mandarin Dog Name Considerations

Since the Mandarin language is Chinese language, you can choose any of those 370,000 words to create a spectacular and unique name for your new pup. However, you may want to try to make sure that the name you choose for your pooch means something special to you. For example, you could name your dog Yanshi because it sounds cool, but it actually means rock. If you really do want to name your dog rock, that is fine but make sure you know what the name means before you choose it for your dog. 

Your reason for choosing to give your dog a Mandarin name may be because you have one of the Chinese breeds of dog such as the Chinese Crested Dog, Chinese Shar-Pei, Chinese Chongqing, Pug, Pekingese, Chow Chow, Kunming Wolfdog, Xiasi Quan Dog, Tibetan Mastiff, Tibetan Spaniel, Lhasa Apso, or the Shih Tzu. Or maybe you just like the Mandarin language or culture. It is interesting to find out what certain words mean in Mandarin such as beauty, which is Meyli, and loyal, which is Zhong. Whatever your reason for wanting to give your canine companion a Mandarin name, take your time in deciding and make sure it fits your fur buddy.
