The Hobbit Book Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Naming your new pup after a character from The Hobbit can be a challenge, mostly due to the fact that you will have so many names to choose from. If your new companion is rounder on the edges, but still irresistibly cute and lovable, you might consider a name such as Bumpkin, a pony owned by Tom Bombadil. For the tall, handsome, elegant dog, a name such as Thranduil might be the best suiting one. Thranduil is, of course, known as the Elven king of the Woodland Realm, the father of Legolas, and the absolute ruler of fabulous hair and posture. Dog breeds such as Afghan Hound, or an Irish Setter could bear such a name with pride and elegance.

If you are a proud owner of a hairless dog breed, such as Chinese Crested Dog, Peruvian Hairless Dog, Ecuadorian Hairless Dog, or a Mexican Hairless Dog, a name Gollum might be the perfect one! Just make sure not to leave your golden ring anywhere where he could reach it! Whichever name you choose, it will most definitely have a lot of history behind it, and can be quite a conversation starter in your local dog park. Happy naming!
