Sloughi Dog Name Considerations

When you see the Sloughi, you do not think they are a typical hound. They are elegant, fast and very loyal to their family. You most likely will not choose a typical hound name such as Jethro or Bessie. Instead, you may wish to pay homage to the Sloughi’s North African roots and pick a name with strong African influence. Some African names can be a bit of a tongue twister or simply too hard to pronounce. It is probably better to avoid names that seem difficult to keep misunderstandings to a minimum. Names that are short and easy to say will probably work best such as Simba, Zane, Nala or Zula. Expect to have some weird looks when you introduce your new puppy and their African inspired name because most of these names are not typically heard or associated with a canine. Take some time to get to know your new Sloughi before you decide on a name. Many times your new puppy’s personality will help guide you in a name that fits them perfectly. If you are still unsure about what to call your new puppy, seek help from other family members and discuss what names they like and can easily pronounce. Together, you are sure to find a name that is fun and fits your puppy.
