Introduction

Alexandre Dumas is the author of the historical novel The Three Musketeers, a novel that is rather entertaining for those of our age, but, in Dumas' time, was a commentary on current events. Dumas follows the journey of young d'Artagnan, a youth wishing to join the Musketeers of the Guard. Although d'Artagnan is not initially successful in his quest, he does encounter three musketeers - Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. With these musketeers, he becomes involved in happenings of the government. Much of the fiction of the novel is based on the lives of those prominent in the French government during the life of the true d'Artagnan (Charles de Batz-Castelmore d'Artagnan).

The Three Musketeers Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Many things should be considered when choosing a name based upon the Dumas novel, The Three Musketeers. First, the novel is set in France - particularly, in Paris. Therefore, dogs of French origin are perfect for names associated with The Three Musketeers. Certainly, one of the first breeds that comes to mind is the Poodle. The Standard Poodle is considered to be very much a French dog, although its popularity has spread across the world. 

The French Mastiff, the Dogue de Bordeaux, is best known as the breed featured in Turner and Hooch. Hooch played a comic foil to Tom Hanks in the film, with his predominant feature being his propensity for slobbering. 

Two breeds which find their origins in the Pyrenean Mountains are also particularly suited for a name inspired by The Three Musketeers novel. Not to be confused with the Great Pyrenees dog (although they are related), the Pyrenean Mountain Dog was at one time a livestock dog. However, he is even more suited to a The Three Musketeers-inspired name because he became an official royal court dog in the 1700s. The Pyrenean Shepherd dog is considered one of the oldest in French history. They worked along the Great Pyrenees dog as livestock dogs as well.
