Introduction

It can be interesting and fun to dip into the world of mythology to find names that might be a good fit for your new pup. Whether your pup is large or small, there is a mythological inspired name that will fit his personality. While the names of many gods and goddesses of ancient mythology can be a bit odd, they can also be a fun way to ensure your dog does not have the same name as many of the other dogs in the neighborhood. With the popularity of Marvel comics and movies, mythological names such as Thor or Loki are on the rise in puppies or even just pets in general.

Mythological Dog Name Considerations

Naming your puppy after a mythological character may make your family and friends wonder what you were thinking. However, there are several interesting names that would be perfect for your dog. Perhaps you are interested in Roman and Greek mythology; you can showcase your knowledge by naming your puppy after a god or goddess that is not well-known. By doing so, you can give a small mythology lesson whenever someone asks you about his name.  

Many planets are also named after mythological gods and goddesses, so if you are interested in astronomy, you may find yourself picking a name that is both astronomical and mythological. Your pooch will have big shoes to fill when he is named after a god or goddess, so choose your name wisely. A small dog named after the king of the gods, Zeus, will make people chuckle, whereas a large dog named Zeus seems to invoke images of a well-muscled, beautiful dog. People will be amazed with the uniqueness and history of the name. Expect people to ask you many questions about your puppy’s name when he is named after a mythological character. It may be that you are not a mythology buff and simply like the sound of some of the names such as Zeus or Thor.
