Introduction

Officially the Republic of Senegal, Senegal is a country in West Africa that is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Mauritania to the north, Mali to the east, Guinea to the southeast and Guinea-Bissau to the southwest. The country, which got its name from the Senegal River (borders the country to the east and north) also shares a maritime border with Cape Verde. About 15 million people call this country of 76,000 square miles home. The majority of the landscape of Senegal includes rolling sandy plains of the western Sahel that rise to foothills in the southeast part of the country.

A country like Senegal is sure to have plenty of unique name opportunities to take a look at, one of which may be just the one you are looking for.

Senegal Dog Name Considerations

Choosing the right name for your canine buddy can feel overwhelming. If you are struggling to decide on a name for your new pal, don’t fret; you are definitely not alone. If you are seeking an original name that is a fit for your pup, one way to find possible options is to explore, at least virtually, a place that you find interesting. Choose a place that means something to you; perhaps you have lived there or visited (or hope to one day). Then, take a closer look at the place and see what ideas you find.

Take Senegal, for example. Located in West Africa, the country offers a myriad of cities, rivers, lakes, well-known people and unique food items. A little investigating (perhaps through a virtual tour) will bring to the forefront multiple name possibilities for your considerations. Take a closer look and see if one may be a fit for your pup. Dakar, for example, is the capital city and would be a very unique tag for a pup. Considering food, Caldou refers to a recipe made with fish, and suggests a cute name in which to honor Senegal.

With a name from Senegal, each time you call for your pup you will be reminded of the country as well as the unique food and landscape that it offers.
