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.
