Introduction

There is something about being around a Weimaraner that makes you feel like you are part of the royal family. When walking one of these captivating dogs, you almost feel as though you should be waving at peasants or readjusting your crown. This is because the Weimaraner is a majestic breed. They were carefully bred to look and act in a certain way, just like real royals. Since the Weimaraner is no ordinary breed, no ordinary name will do. That is why we will be focusing on names that do not sound pretentious, but reflect the dignity of their breed.

Weimaraner Dog Name Considerations

The Weimaraner breed exists because German nobles were trying to breed the perfect hunting dog. This dog had to have tracking ability, speed and endurance. They mostly succeeded with the Weimaraner breed. The nobles were happy with their hunting breed, and named them the Weimar Pointers, since they were bred in the Weimar Republic. The nobles of the Weimar court were happy with the breed, so happy, in fact, these dogs were so elusive that back then you had to belong to the German Weimaraner Club just to get one.The members of this club tried very hard to keep these dogs exclusive, but all that changed when US citizen, Joseph Knight, obtained entry to the club and brought his dogs home to breed them. Ever since then, these grey ghosts have been a must-have breed. Their unique appearance, and colourful history are all contributing factors to the names we have collected. A Weimaraner needs a name that does not undermine its dignified appearance and history, after all, what would Grand Duke Karl August of Sachsen-Weimar say? We also took care not to be too pretentious, we do not want our precious dogs to get beaten up on the doggie-playground.
