Introduction

Often times you might wonder how cool it really must have been to be a philosopher in Ancient Greece or Ancient Rome, wandering around the Acropolis, wearing a toga, drinking wine, and talking to other fellow intellectuals criticizing the society. What a life that must have been! Thankfully, we know a lot about the philosophers’ lives so we can really immerse into their culture and use them as an inspiration in our daily lives. So, in breaks between reading some of the best philosophical works this world has to offer, why not think of a fabulous name for your new puppy that is inspired by none other than the brightest of the minds?

Philosopher Inspired Dog Name Considerations

As a proud intellectual with a profound knowledge in philosophy, it is only natural for you to want your dog to bear a striking name that will make others think and re-evaluate their life choices. Following in the footsteps of Kyons, or Cynics, you can opt for a name that represents one of the core items of their philosophy. For example, if you are a proud owner of a fabulous looking doggo, why not give them an even more fabulous name such as Eudaimonia? Eudaimonia is, according to the cynics, the goal of life. You get there by living in harmony with nature. The word is translated as happiness or prosperity, and it can even be broken down into two more names, Eu, which means good, and Daimon, which means spirit.

However, perhaps you’d like a name that symbolizes the fight against the mundane, against stupidity, and against the consumerist lifestyle we live today. If so, consider the name Antisthenes, the first cynic and a pupil of Socrates. Another famous cynic was Crates of Thebes who is famous for refusing his wealth and opting to live in poverty as a cynic. He was a teacher to Zeno of Citium who was a founder of Stoicism, which is also a great name for a serious doggo.
