Rafeiro Do Alentejo Dog Name Considerations

Since this dog originated in Portugal, many Rafeiro Do Alentejo owners choose to give their new puppy a Portuguese name. Fortunately, there are many names of Portuguese origin that could be a good fit for your Portuguese Mastiff. If you have a male you may prefer Aleixo, which means "defender of man" in Portuguese, and this breed is most definitely a protector! If you have a female Rafeiro Do Alentejo, you may like the Portuguese name Hattie, which means "ruler of the house".

If you would like to give your dog a name based on the personality or appearance, there are many options as well. For example, if you own a brown Rafeiro Do Alentejo, you may like the name "Bear" or "Hooch". If you would like to find a name based on the size of your new giant, you may choose to name your dog "Augustus" or "Beowolf". As this breed is still used for sheepherding and guarding farm animals, "Skipton," which means "from the sheep estate" could be the perfect fit.

These are a few name considerations that may help you decide on the perfect name for your gentle giant. No matter the name you choose, it is certain that whatever your dog's new name is, it will be chosen with great thought and a lot of love!
