Introduction

If you’re looking to give your dog a snowboarding-inspired name, chances are you’re a snowboarder yourself, have an appreciation for the sport, or simply see fresh powder as an untouched venue for romping with your furry friend. Whether you’re ready to hit the hills, plunk down and watch the X-Games, or just thrash around in the snow in your yard, giving your dog a snowboarding-inspired name is the perfect way to honor your dog, the sport, and its athletes with a unique name that will both stand out and with any luck, be easily recognizable to others with the same interests.

Snowboarding Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Like with any themed name, considerations should stem from several criteria for generating appropriate name ideas. In terms of snowboarding, if you’re looking for something more character-specific, consider your favorite riders or brands. If you’re looking for something more general, keep in mind more generic terminology, such as trick names. In regards to your dog, think about their breed type or origin and their personality, as those are usually the easiest places to start. 

Of course, you can always take the bunny hill route and just strap them in with a simple favorite rider, brand, or trick name. But for anyone looking for a bit more depth, getting creative and taking a closer look at ways you can cleverly tie their name to something more meaningful will provide you that much more appreciation. 

Breed type is usually an easy way to go. For instance, if you have a Norwegian Elkhound or Lundehund, Silje or Torstein, after two Norwegian pros, would be great name choices. If you have an Australian Cattle Dog or Shepherd, maybe Torah or Bright would be good, after the highly-accomplished Australian snowboarder Torah Bright. 

Personality gives you the most creative freedom, as many dogs have well-defined character traits and quirks to work with. For instance, if they tend to kick themselves into reverse and move around that way frequently, such as when they're playing, Fakie would be a great name. If they stay stiff-legged even when they roll on their backs, then Bone or Bones would be a perfect fit. 

Whatever you choose, don’t be afraid to test out several options. Like sticking a trick, you’ll likely know as soon as you hit it.
