Introduction

Whether you are Irish or not, you've probably heard of Saint Patrick’s Day. But what is this holiday really about? Is it just a holiday where we can drink green beer and eat corned beef and cabbage or Irish stew? No, Saint Patrick’s Day is a religious celebration held on March 17th every year, which is the day that Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland died in 461 A.D. It was actually called the Feast of Saint Patrick but in this case, that has nothing to do with eating. According to Christian history, the Lent restrictions of eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for this day, which is why we suddenly feel the need to drink and eat a lot on this holiday. 

Whether you adopted a new pup for St. Patrick's Day, have an Irish breed or just love the Emerald Isle, here are some Irish inspired names to help you find the perfect match for your new pup.

St. Patrick's Day Dog Name Considerations

What does Saint Patrick’s Day mean to you? Are you Irish or are you just fond of the Irish traditions? Do you long to go to Ireland someday because of the beauty and culture there? Or maybe you just like green beer and corned beef. Do you like shamrocks or leprechauns a lot or believe that you will have good luck if you give your canine companion a Saint Patrick’s Day name? Or perhaps your dog seems to be in tune with the Emerald Isle. Those are all pretty good reasons for naming your dog a Saint Patrick’s Day name.

Then again, if you have an Irish dog breed, that could be a good reason for a Saint Patrick’s Day name. Some of the most common Irish breeds are the Kerry Blue Terrier, Irish Wolfhound, Wheaten Terrier, Irish Setter, Airedale, Irish Terrier, Irish Water Spaniel, Irish Glen of Imaal Terrier, and the Kerry Beagle. Naming your dog after an Irish food or drink may be your idea of cute as well such as cabbage or corned beef. Yes, those are silly names, but they sure would be cute for your little bundle of fur. We found some more for you to choose from.
