Introduction

Also known as the Kokoni, the Small Greek Domestic Dog is a breed that is native to Greece and is as sweet and cuddly as they may sound. With a long haired tail, floppy ears, and a delicate snout, these little dogs were popular companions of the Greeks for a very long time, and still are today. Their name, Kokoni actually can be translated to mean "daughter" in Modern Greek; this was most likely chosen as the title for this dog as daughters tended to help around the house, so these dogs were the "daughter's dog" and didn't go out to hunt like other Greek breeds. If you are lucky enough to own one of these pups, then you know how wonderful of a companion they can be.

Small Greek Domestic Dog Name Considerations

Naturally any Greek name would work perfectly when it comes to choosing a title for your Small Greek Domestic Dog. However, a few options that may be even more fitting for this particular breed tend to revolve around the minor gods and goddesses of Greek culture. As the Small Greek Domestic Dog is on the small to medium side, choosing a minor god or goddess to represent them is not only going to offer an amazing name that represents their culture, but it will also let their small size shine! The most common and popular Greek gods such as Zeus are always well known, but what about some of the others that we don't always hear about? For instance, there is a minor god by the name of "Notus" who is the god of the south wind. In fact, there are four different wind gods that make up the north, south, east, and west winds; these names are perfect for the Small Greek Domestic Dog due to the long, fair fur and delicate features. If you want to go for a slightly more well-known name, there is always the god "Pan", who is the deity of the wild and much more.
