Introduction

The Wild West conjures up images of unruly cowboys, feisty cowgirls, wild and free Indians and the wild untamed land that spawned a multitude of incredible tales. From battles with the Indian people, to just surviving the unfriendly and wild land, the old Wild West has an amazing history of drama, bravery and heroic tales. What could be more perfect than that, to offer inspiration for a name for your new canine? A reserved athletic type of dog would suit the name Apache perfectly. Or perhaps a female dog could be called Annie after Annie Oakley, Pocahontas after a beautiful Indian maiden, or even Calamity after Calamity Jane. There are so many heroes and heroines to choose from, not to mention the names of rivers, canyons and even the wild animals like the bear, bison and the moose to make choosing a name for your dog. Consider the size, color and the temperament of your new dog and match it to a Wild Wild West character for an original and meaningful name.
