Fancy having a member of the royal family as a member of your own? No, you don’t have to marry Price Harry (he’s taken anyway), or court Queen Rania (married as well). All you have to do is acknowledge that your dog is royalty and treat them like one! You treat your pup as one of the royals either way, so why not match their name to their status? Luckily, there are many options out there since monarchy was basically the norm back in the day, and many kings, queens, princes, and princesses have marked history with their incredible achievements and conquests.

Royal Dog Name Considerations

Whether you’re a royalist or not, giving your name a proper royal name can be a great way to show the world that your new best friend has blue blood, at least to you. Time to dust off the old history book or a hefty encyclopedia and search for the most inspirational king or queen whose name resonates with you. However, if you would like to honor some of the royal dogs immortalized in history, you might opt for the name Caesar. Caesar was not only one of the most well-known historical figures, but also the beloved pet of King Edward VII, a Wire Fox Terrier.

If you are a proud owner of an Italian Greyhound, why not name them after Zemira, Catherine The Great’s companion? A Pug named Mops is a good way to show your history knowledge, as he was Marie Antoinette’s dog, and a Cocker Spaniel named Lupo is for the Kate Middleton and Prince William fans out there. Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark has a Border Collie named Ziggy, which is a great name that also pays an homage to one of the greatest musicians that ever lived, David Bowie.
