Introduction

Trees are wonderful things. Like our canine companions, they can come in many shapes and sizes, from the tiny, twisted Bonsai to the tall, straight Sequoia, and they help to improve our world in so many ways each day. They add beauty to the world, produce food for us to eat, and generate oxygen for us to breathe. Some trees, like the White Willow and Elderberry tree, also contain healing compounds, while still others, like the great Sequoia in California named General Sherman, amaze us with their size and their longevity. Trees are also known for their ability to inspire us, artistically, socially, and spiritually; maybe they can inspire you to find just the right name.

Tree Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a name for our pets can be an enjoyable but challenging task. Choosing a poor name can impact training time and efficiency while a well thought out name may help to enhance the bond between you and your canine companion. It is important that the name chosen is one that everyone in the household is able to easily pronounce and one that the dog responds well to. Choosing a name related to a tree ensures that your dog will have a strong and beautiful name, but with the amount of variation that can be found in the world of trees, you have plenty of options available to you. You can choose to name your dog based on physical attributes, like Ebony for a black dog, Acorn for a small one, or even Ironwood for the dog with the exceptionally hard head. Sometimes it may be wise to wait a day or two after bringing your new dog home before choosing their final name, as the personality of the dog may also be a factor in your eventual choice, meaning that a kind, nurturing canine might end up with a name like Alder, while your little warrior may end up with a name like Holly instead.

This was actually the name she had when we adopted her. We didn't want to change her name as she was very well adjusted to it. I feel it is a very majestic name, that sometimes doesn't fit her goofy/playful personality. When she is being a ham, I call her Whomping-Willow, from Harry Potter. Haha! Don't get me wrong, the name Willow is beautiful. She's just a bit of a dork sometimes.
