Introduction

The pirate theme is a popular theme, thanks in large part to Disney's extremely successful Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.  However, despite the massive popularity of the movie franchise, pirates have long been the subject of interest in all culture, worldwide.  Piracy has existed as long as people have been sailing the high seas and the culture that is built up around piracy is rich.  Today, most people cannot claim to have connections with pirates as the profession is not as romantic as in days gone but they may be drawn to the history and culture nonetheless.  People who have a high interest in all things pirate may choose to give their new puppy or adoptive dog a genuine pirate's name.

Pirate Dog Name Considerations

Pirates, with the exception of the token brute pirate, are a lithe and lanky bunch.  They are thought of as fast climbers and quick with their hands and tongues.  The general air of a pirate is salty, and they are considered nimble and tricky at times.  It is for this reason that certain dog breeds may be more suited to a pirate's name than others.  Terrier type dogs who are considerably more scrappy and high energy are a perfect breed fit for this theme.  However, any breed might be considered a candidate for a pirate's name.  Sometimes, the pirate's theme chooses the dog owner, rather than the other way around.  Consider the happy day a three-legged dog or a poor pooch who lost an eye has when he meets his forever family.  Special needs dogs can find true happiness in their forever home and have a fighting chance.  Sometimes, the sight of such a dog inspires owners to go with the pirate theme.  After all, there has been many a pirate with a peg leg or an eye patch.  The Pug and French Bulldog breeds and mixed also make for excellent pirate dogs considering they often have funny faces, like that of a weather-beaten sailor.
