Introduction

Shinto, or Shintoism, is Japan’s traditional religion. It has a strong focus on ritual practices that connect Japan’s ancient past with its present day. Shintoism has been around since as early as the eighth century and forms part of a collective of mythology and native beliefs.

With all the public shrines, followers, and events, such as harvest festivals dedicated to Shintoism, it makes sense to look for Shintoism dog names. It’s an integral part of Japanese culture, and why wouldn’t you want to share that with every member of the family? Learn more about Shintoism and the associated dog names below.

Shintoism Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a new name for your dog is a challenging process, but it can be even more so when you try to incorporate religion. There’s no harm in selecting Shintoism dog names for your new family addition, but you have to put in more research than you would for a regular name like Spot or Ralph.

One of the main things to consider is a word or name’s meaning. If you are unsure what something means, but it looks like a cute dog name, then find out. Don’t assume it’s innocent. Failure to research can result in your dog’s name being upsetting, offensive, or insulting to a group or individual.

The next thing to consider is your dog’s personality. If your dog is peaceful, relaxed, and calm, then almost any Shintoism name is perfect for them. If they are full of life and energy, however, you may have to dig a little deeper to find a name that works.

Gender can play a part in your Shintoism dog name choice as well. Some words or names work better for females or males, while some work for both. Never be afraid to put time aside to research possible names. It’s quicker to research a name than it is to try and “untrain” your dog with a name you already gave them.
