Introduction

Religions of the Near East are fascinating. They are, for the most part, polytheistic, meaning that they have more than one god. However, some of them are monotheistic, such as Atenism, Ashurism, and Judaism. A lot of them have their roots in the Proto-Semitic religion, but it is worth mentioning that the Ancient Egyptian religion had a significant influence, as well as the doctrines of the ancient Mesopotamia, the Assyro-Babylonian religion, Hittite religion, and Luwian religion. This many religions means many gods you can take as inspiration for your doggo’s name, and many personalities you can investigate to find the one that suits your dog the best.

Near Eastern Mythology Dog Name Considerations

Exploring the fascinating world of the Near Eastern mythology in search of the perfect name for your dog will not only guarantee the unusual moniker you can give them, but also the expansion of your knowledge. Education is power, and learning about other cultures and religions humbles a person and makes them realize that this world is so big and beautiful and that no one opinion is the right one, we all have our portrayals of our truths and beliefs. Therefore, expanding your world and naming your dog after one of the Near Eastern gods will be a great conversation starter at your local dog park, as well as a great topic between you and your friends. 

So, if you want to honor the Ancient Egyptian protector of the afterlife, you can give your dog the name Anubis. Or, if you are more into the lord of the underworld himself, choose the name Osiris. Of course, you can also opt for Isis, the Egyptian goddess of protection, healing, and motherhood, and the most important goddess in the Ancient Egyptian religion. Ishtar, a Sumerian goddess of love and sexuality has a fantastic name, as well as Horus, the Egyptian god of the Sky. The options are plentiful, so get to researching and find the perfect name!
