Pharaoh Hound Dog Name Considerations

Pharaoh Hounds are sought-after for a reason. Not only are they brilliant hunting dogs, but they are also fast, clever and lovable. Their roots can be traced back to as far back as 4,400 BC when they were the companions of ancient Egyptians. The Egyptians valued their skills and loyalty, and they immortalised their pets in drawings, paintings and sculptures. They are also known to get along well with cats, which would have made them even more lovable in the sight of the Egyptians. Pharaoh Hounds are incredibly affectionate, and are also known for “blushing” when they get excited. Their cheeks and nose will go pink, making them one of the cutest breeds around. Taking all of this into consideration is vital when naming your Pharaoh. You want to give them a name that captures the nobility of the breed, but isn’t a mouthful. That is what we kept in mind when choosing the names below. All the names have a playful, yet insightful link to the breed. Some are obvious, while others are a little subtler. Give your Pharaoh Hound a name that will make his royal ancestors proud, and give others an idea of where he or she came from.
