Scottish Deerhound Dog Names

When naming your dog, consider the type of name you would like for your pet. People largely name their pets after a human name they love, or perhaps the color or characteristics of the animal. A black dog often gets named Midnight or perhaps Storm. An active dog could be called Dash, Comet or even Ricochet. Big dogs often inherit names that describe their sizes such as Bear, Titan or Goliath. Whatever you choose, make sure it is both easy to call out and one that is not embarrassing! Remember you will be in the public arena with your dog and dog lovers love to ask your dog’s name, so choose wisely. 

Another consideration is to avoid names that are too similar to commands that you use to train your dog. For example, Joe is short and sweet for a name, but it is very close to the command 'No'. It can be difficult for your dog to distinguish between the two similar sounding words. Long names are popular too,  but they may be shortened with use. Just make sure you like the shortened version before naming your dog. A pet's breed and history can inspire some great names. For a Scottish Deerhound, a name such as Hunter, Stealth or Shadow indicates a dog who has a history as a hunter of wild game. A name like this fits the athletic shape and the tendency to love a good chase. So consider all these factors as you peruse our list of names, and soon your dog will have the perfect name that suits their nature.
