Osaka Dog Name Considerations

First things first, there are a few points to consider when tagging your dog with an Osaka-inspired name. For one thing, it's crucial that you make this process about your dog, not so much Osaka. For instance, you may like several names on this list, all revolving around Osaka, and select the one that you love the most. That's fine, but what if the name doesn't really work with your dog? Instead, look to your dog for direction. What is the breed, size, appearance, and personality? Once you have this information in mind, you're more capable of looking through these names and knowing when something works, and when it doesn't. 

Names that sound puny and cuddly, maybe even cute, don't quite work for big dogs, unless you're looking to be ironic or funny. Names that resound and convey images of grandeur work best on the larger breeds, but when paired with a small dog, it winds up being comical. At the end of the day, you have to gauge when a name works and when you're just trying to be funny with it. Finally, remember that Osaka is full of history. It's a modern blend of new and old. There is a lot of meaning in a lot of what they do. Be mindful, and don't be afraid to look into any references you may not understand.
