Vatican City Dog Name Considerations

If at any case you run out of ideas for your doggo’s new moniker, look no closer than the Vatican City. It is home to numerous works of art and has always been the home of the pope, so names are not in the scarcity here. Starting with the artists whose masterpieces adorn the walls of the Vatican Museums, consider the name Michelangelo, a master whose works on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel are talked about all over the world, and it is one of the most stunning pieces of art ever created. Another fantastic name is Filippo, after Filippo Lippi, an Italian painter whose painting Marsuppini Coronation is housed in Pinacoteca Vaticana.

Some of the other artists whose works are displayed as a part of the Collection of Modern Religious Art in the Vatican are Paul Klee, Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh, and Giorgio de Chirico, whose names can become your dog’s, and will surely be a great conversation starter in the dog park. If you are running out of ideas, look at the painting Pieta, and name your doggo either Pieta or Giovanni, after Giovanni Bellini who created it, or go for Madonna, after the painting Madonna of Foligno created by Raphael.
