Introduction

Adopting a dog is no easy feat. There's a lot of planning and preparation that occurs. From picking out a collar, to researching food brands and ingredients, to finding out about breed origins and contacting breeders and shelters, it's all a big process.  

But perhaps most importantly, there's the name. This is a name you're going to be saying multiple times a day for what is hopefully a long time to come, at least fifteen years. The good news is that all it takes is a little poking around and making a list of names that capture your attention. Here are 60 names that are popular in Tokyo to get you started!

Tokyo Dog Name Considerations

When you name a dog, there are a few things to draw inspiration from. There's breed, appearance, personality, preferences, favorite toys, quirks, origin of the breed, and favorite games (frisbee, fetch), to name a few. All of these things can help you think of some witty, charming names. But sometimes, you still need some more inspiration. 

And that's when you need to look at yourself, rather than the dog. You're the person that's adopting the dog, perhaps doing the training, and certainly spending time with them. So, ultimately, if for one reason or another thinking about the dog when selecting a name isn't working, think about yourself. 

What do you enjoy doing and why? What's your personality like? Will this dog be your sidekick, the Robin to your Batman? Think of the answers to these questions and more, to get an idea of what life with the dog will be like moving forward. 

Also, consider things you enjoy, like pop culture, music, and of course, travel. You are reading the Tokyo names guide after all. Read through the name meanings, and jot down anything that captures your attention. You never know, you could find the ideal name right here, right now.
