Introduction

The second largest state when it comes to both area and population, Texas is located in the South-Central part of the United States. In honor of its former status as an independent republic, and a reminder of its fight for independence from Mexico, Texas is known as the “Lone Star State”. If you live in the state of Texas or have at some time in your past and think fondly of the state, choosing a Texas inspired name for a new canine pal makes a lot of sense. Every time that you call your new friend’s name you will be reminded of the place that is special to you.

Texas Dog Name Considerations

When it comes to choosing just the right name for your new canine pal, it can be hard to decide. For someone with a special connection to the state of Texas, a name that brings the state to mind might be the perfect fit. Each time that you call the name of your pooch, you will be reminded of a place that you love.

Another reason you might decide to choose a Texas-inspired name is if your dog reminds you of a particular dog from the state (whether in breed, appearance or personality). For example, your dog may be similar in appearance to the Texas A&M mascot (named Reveille), leading to your choosing to name him after the well-known dog. Perhaps the large size of your dog makes you think of the large size of the state of Texas. There may be something about the state that holds special meaning to you, which could inspire the perfect name for your pooch. Fortunately, the state of Texas offers plenty of name ideas for someone looking for just the right name for their new canine buddy.
