Saint Bernard Dog Name Considerations

There are many different things to consider when choosing the right name for your new addition.  It’s important that such a special dog like a Saint Bernard is given a meaningful name that they suit and deserve.  You might want to consider color when naming your Saint Bernard, as they are available in a variety of colors.  Usually the Saint Bernard white along with patches of other colors, including brown, red, brindle, orange and rust.   A color inspired name could be something like Rusty, or Ginger, or even the name Red would be suitable.  Names based on temperament could include Teddy and Cuddles.  If you have a mischievous pup, you could call him Rascal, or what about Beethoven, if you are inspired by the movie.  Size is another factor that can influence a name.  Giant, Colossus, and Titan are all great names based on size, too.  Take a look at the lists provided below and write down a few that you like, and see if they suit your treasured companion.  You should also have a discussion with the rest of the family, as sometimes others can motivate more inspiration, for instance try doubling the names up if you want something unusual, like Teddy Cuddles for instance. You can certainly mix it up!  Take your time when choosing, and why not have a vote if you can’t all agree?
