Introduction

The Mastino Napoletano is a dog breed native to Italy. The Italian breed, which is also called Neapolitan Mastiff (nicknamed “Neo”), is well-known for its fierce and menacing appearance. Mastino Napoletanos are descendants of war dogs during the ancient Romanian era. They were carefully tailored by Italian breeders to look as intimidating and serious-looking as possible. Neos are naturally massive and bulky from head to tail, which easily makes them one of the most recognizable dog breeds in the world. While they are typically calm and quiet by nature, they are also smart, affectionate, and very protective of their family. They may have a fearsome image, but with ample training and early socialization, the Mastino Napoletano can be the ideal guard dog and companion.

Mastino Napoletano Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a name for your furbaby can be quite difficult, especially if you’re indecisive. But there are things that can make it easy, and one of them include familiarizing yourself with the history and personality of your dog. Neos are strong and fierce dogs. In the ancient Roman war, they were used as protection dogs. As a result, they are very protective of their owners and other people they trust. They weigh between 110 and 150 pounds and have a strong and powerful build. But in spite of their history, Neos are actually calm and relaxed most of the time. They only show signs of aggression whenever necessary. With those being said, it would be a good move to choose a name that fits the breed’s history and personality. Neos are war dogs for the Romans, so it would be fitting to name yours after Roman personalities such as emperors, empresses or even warriors.

It’s also important to note that a Mastino Napoletano is an Italian breed. Thus, you may prefer to choose a name that is of Italian origin. You’re also free to name your Neo after his or her characteristics and personalities. Since they are massive, powerful, smart, and known to be good protectors, choose a name that defines strength, intelligence, fortitude, and loyalty. If you don’t want to get too creative, you can choose to name your Neo after deities or other powerful men that share similar traits.
