Naming a dog can be just as challenging as naming a new baby. It is likely you are seeking a name that fits your dog, while also having some meaning to you. And of course, you want it to be something that you don’t think you will get tired of calling for years to come. When trying to decide on a name for your canine buddy, you can turn to baby name books or websites, or you can get creative in your search and look to movies and songs as well. Some pet parents will consider a favorite travel destination.

For example, think of a place that you have visited or hope to visit one day. Mauritius, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, is a place that you can explore, at least virtually. During your “visit” you can check out Mauritius’ cities, villages, mountains, river, popular food and well-known people.  Take names based on food, for example. Consider Mazavaroo, which is a spicy relish. This unique name can be shortened to Maza or Varoo! Vindaye is a popular fish dish and makes a pretty tag for a pup. Chances are, you will come across numerous possible monikers when looking at the culture of Mauritius, one of which may be just the right fit for your new family addition.
