Introduction

Rock and roll music is almost as American as apple pie. Rock music finds its roots in the blues, which originates in the Mississippi Delta. In fact, many British musicians from Robert Plant to Eric Clapton and members of the Beatles cite American blues music as a primary influence on their music. The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, was heavily influenced by the gospel music he heard growing up in Tupelo, MS and later Memphis. Elvis would tweak the bluesy gospel music of his youth into burgeoning rock music. While rock music today is made up of many different subgenres, rock and roll is still influential on other musical styles. It is always immensely popular throughout the world.

Rock and Roll Music Dog Name Considerations

Giving your pup a rock and roll moniker is not necessarily about the breed of dog involved, but the personality of the dog and perhaps the behavior of the pup. If your puppy is the "King" of your castle, then Elvis might be a fitting name; after all, Elvis IS the King of Rock-and-Roll! Other iconic rock-and-roll artists include Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Holly, Elton John, and David Cassidy. Each of these artists possesses a name which could be a unique. 

You might be inspired to give a rather mischievous pup a rock-and-roll inspired name. John Bonham, drummer of Led Zeppelin, was legendary for his off-stage antics. The name "Bonham" is also quite original and would fit your unique pup quite nicely. In fact, John Bonham also carried the nickname "Bonzo" - a most original and attention-getting name! 

Another drummer with a reputation for tearing up hotel rooms and otherwise wreaking havoc is The Who's, Keith Moon. One story tells of Moon's destroying a Holiday Inn hotel room in Flint, Michigan; Moon, celebrating his birthday, drove a car into the hotel pool and started a cake fight. Moon is also a unique name; it might also be good for a dog who likes to stay awake and play at night.
