When seeking a new name for your dog, it can be confusing as there are so many choices. You want a name that not only suits your dog, but one that means something to you as well. For example, if you are an art fan or artist, consider choosing a name from your passion as a unique and personalised name. This choice provides a selection of names that not only can suit your new companion, but will make you feel happy every time you use its name. For example, if your new female puppy is soft, cute and almost serene, you could call her Mona, after the famous Mona Lisa painting done by Leonardo da Vinci. Or if your new companion is thoughtful and slightly reserved, Rodin might suit him well after  the French artist and sculptor famous for the work, The Thinker!

I am an artist myself, and my puppy is a very huge stress reliever, much like painting. So I thought, why not name my puppy after a famous painting by a famous painter? :))
