Introduction

As a music enthusiast, naming your new doggo after one of the singers that inspired you the most is a great idea! Whether you are a fan of pop music, rock n roll, punk, blues, jazz, or experimental, ambiental, rock-crackling wordless sound poems (shout out to Friends fans), coming up with a sweet name for your new best friend will be an adventure you will most definitely enjoy. You know what to do, gather your friends and throw the most epic dog-naming, music-listening party ever! And, who knows? Maybe you’ll discover an artist who you did not know about but whose music will speak to you despite your current preferences.

Singer Inspired Dog Names Considerations

Are you a proud new owner of a thin, white dog? Why not name him Bowie, after the legendary musician David Bowie and make an homage to his Thin White Duke period? Having the privilege to a name of one of the greatest artists you love as the name of one of the most beloved creatures in your life is an exciting thing. You get to honor your favorite artist, show the world how cool you are for liking their music, and you also get quite a conversation starter with your fellow dog walkers. When someone asks “Why Axl?” you get to tell the story of how the music of Guns N' Roses has changed your life and made your quirky teenage self into a confident and unique adult you are now.

What about naming your pupper Stevie? You get to see the seven wonders every time you look into their eyes, and also remember other fabulous pieces that the queen herself, Stevie Nicks has produced over the years. And if your dog is one of the royals, and if they rule over your heart, naming them Elvis is quite appropriate (and not to mention groovy)!
