Introduction

Romance has been a part of our culture since the 18th century when there was a rise in romantic marriages. During the 18th century, it was more encouraged for the younger generations to choose marital partners based on their romantic attachments. Romance and love remind us every day what is important. Our pet companions help enforce that with the unconditional love and support that they provide their owners with. Even the smallest interactions with our pets can brighten any bad day. They can provide stability, strength, and support in areas of your life that other people or things can’t. So, it would only be fair that the name of these companions deserves to be something as great as their personalities.

Romantic Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a dog name that fully embodies your pet’s personality and little quirks can be quite difficult when you first get them, regardless of whether you get a pup or a fully-grown dog. Whatever name you choose, you’ll most probably be saying it or hearing it several times a day. The name can also hold a strong positive or negative significance towards the training and bonding between the owner and their pet. A name that your dog reacts to as well as one that is simple for the household members to pronounce will produce the highest results.

For dogs that have stronger personalities, names such as Simba and Nala from the Lion King will hold a strong significance. For goofier breeds, or ones that have more puppy-like personalities, names like Mickey and Minnie from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse will suit them better. All of it truly just depends on the personality both inner and outer of the dog in question. For dogs that have honey colored coats, the name ‘honey’ might resonate with them. Similarly, dogs with a golden coat might respond better to the name Goldie. If the dog is great all around, names such as Baby, Cupcake, Precious, and Sweetie would be great. If they are worth more than any stone, they could be appropriately named, such as Ruby, Opal, Onyx, and Jasper.
