Introduction

As most people who practice Taoism will know, it’s the religious tradition of Chinese origin that promotes living in harmony with Tao. Tao is a word to describe a path or way to go. Taoism and its meanings tend to differ, depending on where you learn it, but the basis remains the same. It’s a mental, physical, and spiritual practice that millions of people around the world follow.

If you want your dog to share part of the harmony you enjoy from Taoism, then you may decide to look for Taoism dog names. Given that Taoism is a broad, eclectic term, you will not be short of options. Read on to discover how to choose Taoism dog names and the process for selecting the right one.

Taoism Dog Name Considerations

When you decide to look at Taoism dog names for your new family addition, you have to be careful. Any names from a religion or philosophy blow the door right open for offense and upset. You have to make sure the word or name you choose is one that’s not going to offend anyone in any way. If you follow Taoism, you’ll hopefully understand it enough not to make that mistake.

With any name, it’s crucial to establish the meaning. Find out if it’s entirely random, or whether the name means something special or unique. Looking for the definition can ensure you stay away from names that may be particularly offensive.

You may also like to factor in your dog’s gender. Many of the words and names relating to Taoism will not be gender specific. However, some names will suit a male or female better than others. For example, Arthur, a Taoist philosopher has a name that’s far better suited for a male. Use your discretion.

Personality is also an integral part of the naming process due to how many Taoism words exist in this realm. If your dog is a bit of a glutton, then a name like Jian may work. Jian means moderation, which is something your pooch could learn at dinner time!
