Introduction

The Norwegian Buhund is gaining popularity within North America with the help of televised dog shows and a new book series based on a Buhund named Lola. This Nordic medium-sized spitz breed has a storied past of riding the seas with the Vikings. The Buhund prefers cold weather and was used as a herder and a guard dog. They are affectionate, intelligent, and very devoted to their owners. Their dense coat does require regular grooming. The Buhund is known to be an energetic, vocal companion. They communicate using their voice through barking, trilling, yodeling, and yipping. This confident breed can become destructive and a neighbor's worst nightmare with their voice when they are not given enough attention.

Norwegian Buhund Dog Name Considerations

Being a common companion of the Vikings, the Norwegian Buhund deserves a name fitting of their legendary history. There are several names with Norwegian influence that would be a good choice for your new Buhund puppy. Remember, the Norwegian Buhund is not a popular breed within the United States so finding a puppy, or even an adult, to add to your family may be difficult. There are not many that find their way into dog rescues or shelters and breeders do not always have puppies available for purchase. Once your new Buhund comes home you should spend some time getting to know them before settling on their name. When searching for a name for your new Buhund look for names that do not sound like other dogs within the family or neighborhood. You do not want dogs to be confused in the neighborhood when out walking or playing at the dog park. Pick names that pay homage to the Buhund’s past and fit their personality. For instance, Asgrim is a male name that means having leadership abilities which is fitting for a dog that excels as a herder and guardian. Then there is Reka, which is a female name that means mighty and distinguished and would be excellent for the medium-sized mighty Buhund.
