New York Dog Name Considerations

New York has a reputation of having hard-nosed, quick-tongued people with dry intellectual wit.  The overactive, space-loving Border Collie might not exactly epitomize the self-confident, sagacity of a New York dog.  You also want to consider the size and breed of your dog when choosing a New York inspired name.  Apple, for example, is a great companion and small dog name for a female where Bomber seems more appropriate for a larger male.  Bethel, which refers to the town of the historic and epic music festival, Woodstock, seems more appropriate for long-haired dogs whose bangs cover their faces or even scruffy looking, beatnik-looking dogs that might remind you of a music and poetry-loving hippie.  Smooth coated and sleek-looking dogs, like Doberman Pinschers, are more suited to names like Lex or Madison while small, companion dogs, like the Maltese or Pekingese, can enjoy names such as Lolita and Rico.  However, no one breed or type of dog captures quintessential New York.  Any dog, of any breed, color, or size can be named a New York inspired names.  Choosing the best name for your dog is a big deal and considering New York locations, interests, and history can help guide you in choosing the right name for your four-legged friend.
