Sports Inspired Dog Name Considerations

One of the many responsibilities that comes with acquiring a new pooch is the task of choosing the perfect name. While there are those who opt for simple, easy-to-remember dog names, most owners often prefer a name that is special to them or one that matches their dog’s individuality. A rule of thumb in naming your dog is to choose a name that is not too long, preferably one that contains only one or two syllables. Dogs are typically only able to recall the first two syllables of any word, which is why this general “rule” was established.

For sports aficionados who want to choose a sports-related name for their dog, the options are endless. One way to narrow down the field (no pun intended) is to relate your choice of name to your dog’s attributes. For instance, if you have a dog who runs really fast, you may choose the name “Bolt”, which means “to run quickly” and is also an homage to Olympic runner Usain Bolt. Or, if your male dog loves to play catch, you may name him after famous baseball players such as Babe Ruth or Barry Bonds.

To keep things simple, many dog owners can also settle for their personal favorites. For example, fans of the Los Angeles Lakers may name their dogs after any of the team’s most popular players. Ultimately, the decision all boils down to your personal preference.
