Introduction

What is New World mythology and why should you, as a new dog owner, care about it? Well, New World mythologies belong to the people on the Western Hemisphere of the Earth, mainly the Americas, and in some historians’ and geographers’ opinion, Australia. While large religions such as Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism still reign in numbers, New World mythologies make up in originality, abundance of deities, and a plethora of interesting stories revolving around the gods and other mythological creatures. And one of them can be inspiration for your dog’s new name!

New World Mythology Dog Name Considerations

Whether you live in the so-called New World or you are just a fan of the mythologies of the world, finding the name for your dog inspired by the New World mythologies is a fun and challenging task. Fun, because you get to explore all the wonderful and fascinating religions that existed or still exist, and challenging because some of the names are quite unique and complicated, and will definitely cause some questions to be asked. However, anything that gets the conversation going is good, as you get to make new friends and expand each other’s minds with new knowledge. How dogs help us!

For example, one of the great choices for a name is Boto, the shapeshifting Amazon river dolphin who turns into a handsome man and seduces young women in Brazilian mythology. Or perhaps you are more keen to name your dog Chía, after the goddess of the Moon in Muisca religion, or Lono, the god of the heavens in Polynesian mythology. Maui, the trickster god and hero in Polynesian mythology is a fantastic option, as well as Oshun, the goddess of love and abundance in Hoodoo religion. The options are so abundant, that you might need to read up on your favorite mythology to find the perfect name, but the list below can also help you decide which route to take.
