Introduction

The Welsh culture is full of beautiful and interesting names that have a meaning for pretty much anything; and we aren't exaggerating! If you, or your pup, are of Welsh heritage and you would like to represent that connection through an amazing name, then be assured that it won't be hard to find one that is perfect regardless of what breed you may have. An interesting fact about the Welsh language is that at one point, it was spoken across much of England and has even carried over into some of the words we use today. An example of this is the word "Dad" which comes from the Welsh word "tad"!

Welsh Dog Name Considerations

If you have a Welsh breed, such as the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Welsh Terrier, Welsh Springer Spaniel, or the Sealyham Terrier, then a Welsh name is the perfect way to represent that heritage. Due to the wide list of names that come from Wales, no matter what type of dog you have, you can find a title that will work well for either appearance, personality, or both. For instance, if you have a Sealyham Terrier (who tend to be white) a couple of great options for names may be "Eira", "Alwyn", or "Cerwen", all of which mean "white" or a variation of white. Or, if you have a Springer Spaniel, names such as "Cefin" (little comely one), "Ilar" (cheerful), "Braith" (freckled), or "Brychan" (pied, spotted, speckled) could match both their personality and coloring wonderfully. These are just a few of the many amazing and unique names that the Welsh options have to offer. Even if you do not have a breed from Wales, you can take advantage of these titles and provide your furry friend with an awesome name that will make an impact for as long as they are around. Just keep in mind that some of the names may be difficult to pronounce or spell, but a quick search and a modification or two will work perfectly!
