Song Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Songs are everywhere. There’s no shortage of music out there. You might consider a song inspired name for your new pup. You could think about songs you’ve written yourself, famous hits, or even a song that was recorded in the year you purchased, adopted, or rescued your new fluffy family member. The sky's the limit when you ponder music and potential pup monikers. Just turn on the radio, pull out the old records, or Google our world’s most beloved jams. You will certainly find what you’re looking for with a little research and listening.

You might go with some golden oldies inspired names like “Bayou” or “Peggy Sue.” If country music is your preferred genre, you might select something like “Walker,” Whiskey,” “Miner,” “Midnight,” “Jolene,” or “Fancy.” If those turn-of-the-century hits are appealing try “Baby” or “Genie.” Look up classic rock, rap, and contemporary songs, too. Finally, if you’re into the greatest songs of all time, name your doggo “Thriller,” “Dancer,” or “Heartbreaker.” Use our name guide below to get some inspiration, but we truly recommend listening to what you love, too. Those songs will make sense to you most. Your dog will have a very meaningful, musical name in no time. So get to listening, singing, and thinking about the title that suits your pet best!

We got Roxanne from a rescue organization, the dog we went to get was Lyric, but when we saw our pup, we couldn't say no. My daughter's favorite song is Roxanne, so that's where she got her name
