Introduction

The Witcher is the powerful, sometimes vulnerable Geralt of Rivia in the fantasy books written by Polish author Andrzeg Sapkowski. The books, TV shows, and games depict a world that resembles our grim Middle Ages, populated by wizards, mages, sorceresses, villains and heroes. Human and animal predators are everywhere, and monsters lurk around every corner. A monster-killer for hire, Geralt’s story reflects his nature, relationships, and self-imposed isolation.

The Witcher stories also contain many other memorable characters whose monikers might fit your adventurous, loyal, and mischievous fur babies. If you’re looking for a unique name for your woofer, The Witcher is a great place to start. We’ve gathered some examples to get your creative juices flowing!

Geralt of Rivia

The Witcher Inspired Dog Names Considerations

Naming a new puppy or rescued adult dog is daunting, but with a little thought, it can end with a name that truly fits your pup and yourself. Characters from favorite films and television series are often an inspiration for new dog parents. Choosing a fur baby name that incorporates a character's coloring, personality, and quirks may make the hunt easier. Other factors to consider might include gender, size and body structure, hair length and color. Whether yours is a working dog, lap dog, or a perpetually entertaining jester could play into your choice, too. 

A German Shepherd who is stalwart and disciplined might aptly be named Mousesack, Queen Calanthe's loyal confidante and Ciri's protector. Like Mousesack, these intelligent and dedicated dogs are focused on their duty, and almost nothing can dissuade them. 

Goldencheeks, which is Zola's nickname, might be a charming name for a Golden Retriever. A kind woman who takes a lost Ciri into her home to protect her, she demonstrates friendliness and loyalty, key characteristics of a Golden. And like the breed, she's gentle and warm as well. 

Draig Bon-Dhu is a traveling bagpipe musician hired to play at Queen Calanthe's daughter Pavetta's coming-of-age party. An entertaining pup like a Jack Russell Terrier might be like Draig: entertaining and always ready to lift the spirits of everyone around them.
