Introduction

If you’re in programming, IT or even just a keyboard warrior when it comes to work, you may see things in terms of technical jargon whether you like it or not. Some words, due to the frequency of their use, can become permanently cemented in your vocabulary, and like early facets of anthropology have stated, you perceive your world through your language. So if you’re one of the growing number of people who experience life through a more and more focused tech lens, giving your name a tech inspired name can be a great way to bring their flesh, bone and fur selves into an increasingly digital world.

Tech Inspired Dog Name Considerations

While there seems to be limited commonalities shared by both dogs and tech, there is certainly a broad expanse of ways to interpret the jargon to turn the digital lexicon into a list of apt names. To make it easier on yourself, start by making a list of your dog’s most prominent traits, such as their looks, personality, and quirks, then compare them to the words and definitions on our list (or make one of your own) and see what stands out as the most appropriate. 

For instance, if your dog has a good memory, consider the names Cookie or Cache, as they’re both data collection vehicles used for reference efficiency. If they are one of few things in real life that can reset or recenter you, then Defrag would be a great name. If they’re particularly good at finding things, then Essio would be an apt choice. If they have a tendency to do something only briefly and then get distracted or change directions at the drop of a hat then Bounce would be appropriate. If they’re highly intelligent but socially awkward, then Dilbert would be perfect. 

There are tons of directions you can take the naming process. All you need is a sizable list and a bit of creativity and you should have no issues finding your meatspace dog a fun tech name.
