Whenever we hear the word "spice" the first thing that most likely comes to mind is cooking. Spices have been used for as long as we can remember to make foods unique and flavorful and there is quite an extensive list of different variations. While a love of the culinary arts may be the most obvious reason for naming a dog after a spice, other forms of inspiration can come from the dog's coloring and personality. Or perhaps you, the owner, just really love to put something like Cinnamon on everything; thus, you name your dog Cinnamon. No matter what reasoning may be behind a spice chosen title, we are sure that it is going to be delightfully perfect in every way!

Spice Inspired Dog Name Considerations

If you are looking for a wide variety of names that can work for dogs of all shapes, colors, and sizes, then you have come to the right place. Thanks to the wide variety of different spices in the world, there are so many great options that range from subtle to pungent and spicy to sweet. Because of this, whether you decide to name your dog based on his appearance of his personality, a spice name can provide you with options for both sides of the spectrum. You might have a gorgeous chocolate Lab who is just as sweet as can be, so you decide to name her Anise after the Star Anise spice due to her coloring. That same name can be used for a dog that may not have the same coloring, but tends to have a very confident personality that almost borders on overbearing. No matter how you choose to interpret the name, Anise is beautiful and very unique.  

Another great example for a spice named dog would be Pepper. This name would be perfect for a pied dog or one who has a super upbeat and energetic personality. If you are the type of person that tends to see Pepper as the more toned down companion of Salt, you might even decide that the name Pepper is perfect for a more laid-back and even-keeled dog, perhaps older and with a bit of white showing throughout his black fur.
