Introduction

Also known as Association football and football, soccer is played by two teams, each with 11 players, along with a ball, which players cannot touch with their hands or arms, unless they are the goalkeeper in their penalty area. Currently the most popular sport in the world, soccer is played by 250 million players in more than 200 countries. Each team seeks to score by getting the ball into the goal of the opposing team. The sport’s rules were first organized in England in 1863 by the Football Association. Those who love to play or watch the game (or do both) may find that a great name for their new pup is one that brings to mind the sport that they love.

Soccer Inspired Dog Name Considerations

As you think about the perfect name for your pooch, a soccer inspired name may be just the right choice. Perhaps the breed or appearance of your new pup brings to mind a dog that is connected to soccer in some way; for example, a Golden Retriever may bring to mind Buddy from the movie Air Bud: World Pup.

A soccer inspired name may be ideal for a fan of the game. You can choose to name your canine pal after a favorite player or a team that has brought you a lot of joy to watch play. Each time you call the name of your dog you will be reminded of the games that you have watched and the excitement you have felt. This may also feel like a great way to honor that player or team that is special to you, as well as your new pet. You may also look to rules and regulations for the game, certain plays, as well as positions that each team member can play.

Regardless of why you choose a soccer inspired name, finding possible names to choose from will be easy and fun. After naming your new pal, you can enjoy the ongoing reminders you get of your favorite sport every time you call his name.
