Introduction

Ulysses is one of the novels that changed the world forever, and for the better for that matter! The iconic book was written by the notable Irish author James Joyce whose long sentences and usage of made up words made his work incredibly hard, but also incredibly rewarding to read. All over the world, translators struggle to bring Joyce’s word justice in their language, and it is often considered that his works are one of the hardest ones to understand in the literary world. Therefore, it is mind-blowingly cool to name your dog after a character from Ulysses and show the world how smart and well-read you are!

Ulysses Book Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When looking for inspiration for the name of your new dog, turning to literature can be a great way to come up with a perfect moniker that can be inspiring, meaningful, and unique. In the search, you may opt to read a challenging novel such as Ulysses which is packed with characters from different walks of life, different social statuses, and different interests. So, you can choose a name Ulysses, which is not only the name of the book itself but also the alternative name of Odysseus, the famous hero from ancient Greece! Not just that, but there are also many famous people and places that bear the same name, for example, the 18th President of the US, Ulysses S. Grant! How regal and presidential!

Another excellent choice is Tatters. Tatters was a dog that appeared in the book, and it is an utterly cute name for a shaggy dog, for example, a Bearded Collie or an Old English Sheepdog. A sophisticated choice is Mina, after Mina Kennedy, a character from the novel, or Florry, after Florry Talbot. If you are looking for a unique sounding name, you can opt for Lunita, after Lunita Laredo, which, when you think about it, can also be the alternative name for the little moon, if you’re into the Latin language.
