Introduction

Despite being one of the world's older religions, not much is known about Slavic paganism; compared to the likes of Greek and Norse mythology, which have become ingrained in contemporary pop culture thanks to the inclusion of characters from their respective pantheons in a large number of games, movies, TV shows, and books, the members of the Slavic pantheon are not particularly well known to the world at large. The purpose of this guide is to provide you with an extensive list of potential names to give to your dog that are based off of Slavic mythology but, hopefully, this guide will also inspire you to learn more about the Slavic pantheon and help spread the world about its underappreciated pantheon. In time, you're bound to see some of the various ways in which Slavic mythology inspired many religions that came after it.

Slavic Mythology Dog Name Considerations

The ancient Slavs were a very spiritualistic group of people who sought to become connected to the Earth and the animals that roamed its wild lands and untamed places. To that end, wolves were held in high regard in Slavic mythology; the visage of the wolf would often be incorporated onto totems and other such structures and number of Slavic deities were heavily associated with wolves, in one way or another. Dazbog, a Slavic god closely associated with the sun, is a perfect example of this; Dazbog was said to be a cultural hero to the Slvas who was capable of a large number of feats, one of them being the ability to change into a form that resembled a large white wolf. If you own an all white Jindo, Siberian Husky, or Samoyed dog, consider naming them after Dazbog whose wolf form likely would have resembled these sorts of dogs. 

Conversely, the gods of the Slavic pantheon also had distinct personalities and behavioral traits that made each of them stand apart from one another; take the gods Belobog and Chernobog. These two are the dictionary definitions of the term "polar opposites" as Belobog is a white "blessed" god while Chernobog is a black "cursed" god. But things aren't as black and white as they might seem, as it's unknown if Chernobog was all bad or if Belobog was all good. So consider naming your dog after either of these deities if your pup is a good dog with bad tendencies or vice versa.
