Introduction

For those into boat racing, few sports are as historic and timeless as rowing. While its popularity surged with its first appearance in the Olympic Games at the turn of the 20th century, many rowing clubs around the world had been established more than 100 years prior. But even before it took the modern world by storm, it was firmly entrenched in ancient history, starting with the Egyptians, thus making it one of the longest established sports still practiced in competition. Because of it, between its expansive history, famous locales, famous athletes and terminology, it provides a plethora of potential names for those who love the sport almost as much as they love their dog.

Rowing Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When attempting to come up with an apt rowing inspired name for your dog, start by putting together a list of some of your dog’s most prominent traits and features, from their breed origin to their looks, quirks and personality. Once you’ve done so, compare it to our list and see if any qualities match up.

For instance, if you have a dog that always seems to be barking orders at you, the name Coxswain would be perfect. For a dog that always spins in circles in one direction when they’re excited, the names Port and Starboard might work well. For a dog that’s particularly good at swimming, the names Scull or River would be solid choices. If they’re a good swimmer and fast on top of it, the name Regatta would be suitable, as would any name of a famous rower on the list (or off it for that matter as well). For a Molossus type dog who also boasts some serious history in their origins, the names Amenhotep, Aeneas, Doggett and Leander would be perfect. 

There are plenty of directions you can go from boat part names that match a feature of their looks, technique names that match some element of their habits or even just matching them up with a famous location or regatta name. All you have to do is get your mental oars in the water to get started.
