Old Men/Women Dog Name Considerations

Choosing your pooch's name is actually a very big thing. Most people consider their dogs an integral part of their families. When picking a name, pet owners often try to choose a moniker that reflects the pooch's personality or attitude. However, researchers find that the name you pick for your pet actually reveals more about you than your dog. People tend to name their pooches after things that mean something to them personally. In many cases, the names that they choose also reveal aspects of their own personalities. 

Older individuals often pick names that are more geared towards past generations. This could be because the names are familiar from the person's youth. Sometimes the name might actually be the name of a previous loved one or family member. 

If you pick a name that is commonly associated with older members of society, this could simply mean that you like the classics. You are attracted to a bygone era. Maybe you view the previous generation as truly the 'Greatest' generation so choosing a name from that time frame is a form of respect and admiration. 

As with all names, even dog names, trends come and go but the classics remain tried and true. Sure, maybe naming your canine buddy after your great-grandmother or grandfather might not seem cool but it is unique. It shows that you care about the older generation

Classic tried and true names rarely lose their beauty. The names are like fine wine and only grow better as time goes by. If you truly feel pulled towards an old person's name then why not bestow it on your fur buddy? People will definitely ask you why you made such a unique choice so you will have the chance to explain why you picked out the name that you did.
