Introduction

Located in the Midwest and North in the United States, Minnesota is known for its large number of lakes; in fact, its slogan is “Land of 10,000 Lakes”. The majority of the state’s residents live in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area, which is known as the “Twin Cities”.

For residents of Minnesota, or those who feel an attachment to the state, a Minnesota-inspired name may be a perfect choice for your new pup. Each time you say his name, you will be reminded of Minnesota and all that the state offers.
