Introduction

If you look up the word vintage in the dictionary, you are probably going to find something like a fine collection of old things, persons, or even a popular year. For example, wine may be vintage 1840, a television show can be vintage 1970s, or a photograph collection of Marilyn Monroe may be vintage 1950s. It could actually mean anything from toys to clothing, to people that are more than twenty years old. Some consider it to be something valuable that is too old to be modern but too young to be an antique. Does your dog remind you of Elvis? Maybe you like nostalgic things like old clothing from the 1950s such as poodle skirts or saddle shoes or maybe you just want to find a name for your dog that is unique but means something. Then, a vintage dog name may be exactly what you are looking for.

Vintage Dog Name Considerations

It can be a little bit difficult to come up with a good name for your dog. You don’t want it to be something like everyone else has because your dog is unique. But, you also don’t want it to be so unique that it sounds strange. You also have to worry about the nicknames that people will come up with for your dog from their name. Some people can come up with some doozies!

A vintage name is cool because first of all, it means your dog is a classic. And it also means that your pooch is priceless, like an antique, but not old. Not yet anyway. It does not matter how old your furry friend is or what they look like. In fact, it doesn’t matter what breed your dog is either. However, it may make a difference on whether your dog is a male or female, of course. 

Since this is your dog, you need to like the name. You probably should be able to spell it too, just in case someone asks you. But you can really spell it any way you want to. After all, this is your dog. These are just some suggestions for you to consider as you seek a tag for your favorite pup!
