Introduction

When it comes to racket sports, squash may not be the most popular, but that certainly doesn’t take away from the fact that it can be a fun, intense game that provides a significant cardiovascular workout. Even if you don’t have a court in your local neighborhood, the game itself is gaining nationwide popularity, as the United States ranks in the top three outside of Egypt and England. With it has come a fairly good sized list of terminology, techniques, famous faces and places you can use to give your dog an appropriate squash inspired name. After all, even if they’re not familiar, they soon will be once they realize there’s a new ball involved!

Squash Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Coming up with a suitable squash inspired name can be a simple or more complex process depending on how much meaning you’d like to attribute through their future title. If you plan to keep it simple, try choosing the name of one of your favorite or most accomplished squash players. If you’d like a little more depth, start by making a list of your dog’s most prominent traits, as this will be the easiest point of comparison to the list we’ve made below. Then try to see where similarities crop up and don’t be afraid to get creative.

For instance, if your dog is always playfully aggressive when you partake in games together, Striker would be a great name. For a dog always in the middle of things, T would be a solid fit. For a dog that always carries around sticks or other pieces of wood (or is a racket thief for that matter), the names Timber, Racket or Ash would be good fits. For a dog that’s constantly wheeling around backwards, the names Turner and Spin would be decent. If your dog often barks when others play, the name Ref would be great. 

There are plenty of ways you can go as long as you have a bit of imagination, so grab a mental ball and racket and start plugging away!
