The Mindy Project Dog Name Considerations

When choosing the name of any fur baby, it's worth going over a few things before you settle on their official title. One point to consider is how your pupper will feel about the moniker. Did you know that dogs actually respond best to 2 or 3 syllable names? It's true! They also prefer harsher sounding consonants over soft ones. This all has to do with how our woofers interpret our language, and the more definite a sound is, the easier it is for a dog to distinguish. With that in mind, it may be kinder to your pooch to pick a name like "Jody" than it would be to choose "Deslaurier". 

But don't let us stop you! Most canines can get used to whatever name they are given. The next question you're going to want to ask is can you get comfortable saying it! While the idea of practicing dog names out loud without any doggo present may strike you as odd, it's a great way to really see if the name feels right as it comes out of your mouth.

For fans of The Mindy Project, the consideration of characters can be a big influence as to your name choice. Along with Jody, consider Danny or Collette, or Leo, or maybe Dot. The possibilities with this theme are endless!

Remember - you're going to have to say this name around friends, at the vet's, in a baby voice, and in an angry tone, too. Make sure it's one that rolls off the tongue, for everyone's sake!
