Medicine Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When attempting to come up with the most appropriate medicine themed name for your dog, the best course of action is first making a list of their most obvious and defining traits. Consider their breed type, appearance, quirks and other personality traits, as they will be the easiest points to work off of when running down our list.

For instance, if your dog is an Indian breed or if you practice Hinduism, the names Dharti and Ashvins would certainly be suitable fits. If your dog seems to work directly as a healer for some people, more concrete names of doctors’ tools such as Patch, Tourniquet, Bandage and Splint would all work well. If you have a regular interest in Greek or Roman mythology, then the names Hebe, Iaso, Apollo, Chiron, Epione and Hera would all be appropriate. If they seem to have some sort of magic you can’t quite figure out, the names Elixir, Potion, Serum and Tonic would all be equally mysterious. 

There are plenty of ways to go from naming them after your favorite current practitioner to reaching back into time into the mythology of just about anywhere on Earth so don’t limit yourself to the first thing you find that works. As they say, it’s always better to get a second opinion.
