Alexander Herzen once wisely said: “To build a city where it is impossible to build a city is madness in itself, but to build there one of the most elegant and grandest of cities is the madness of genius.” Whether it was impossible to build a city where Venice now lies, or whether that was, indeed, a complete madness is up for discussion, but what is certain is that Venice is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It is also home to the once famous Republic of Venice, also known as La Serenissima, a maritime republic which existed back between the 8th and 18th century. It was a prosperous republic, the leading trading power in Europe during the Renaissance age and the Middle Ages. Therefore, choosing Venice as an inspiration when thinking about a perfect moniker for your new pup is no surprise, as this place has birthed many amazing historical figures, and it continues to do so to this day.

Venetian Dog Name Considerations

The perfect Venetian name for your dog is here; it is just waiting to be chosen! Now, if you are a lucky owner of a Shiba Inu, you can take the easy road and name your lovely little pup simply Doge, after the chief magistrate of the Republic of Venice and the world-famous Internet meme. However, if you want to honor the Venetian Republic in a more obvious way, you can choose a name that lies closer to the source and is a little more specific. One of such names can be Eraclea, the capital of the Republic of Venice from 697 to 742. Another famous capital was Malamocco, and of course, Venice, which is also a fantastic name for your doggo.

Following the line of Venetian doges, you can pick the name Paolo or Lucio, after Paolo Lucio Anafesto, the doge of Venice, or maybe Ludovico, after Ludovico Manin, the last doge of this great republic. Another fantastic choice is Agnello, after Agnello Patricipazio, the first Patricipazio doge, or maybe even Pietro, after Pietro Tradonico, the successor of the Patricipazio. Domenico, after Domenico Selvo, the 31st Doge of Venice is a fabulous name for a fabulous doggo, and Ordelafo, after Ordelafo Faliero is a quirky choice, but an unforgettable one!
