How To Choose A Dog Name


Eragon Now

You have a new addition to the family, your dog. Now you're faced with the decision on what to name your new dog. Sometimes finding the perfect name can be almost as difficult as finding the right dog for you.

The name you choose for your new dog says as much about you as it does your new dog. Soon you and your new dog will establish a bonded relationship and the name you choose shows how you view your dog.

Now this is something for you to consider when choosing your dogs name. Assuming that your new dog is going to be the family pet, you may consider a movie that touched you in some way as I did.

I considered the breed of my dog and pictured what he might look like when he's grown up. He wasn't going to be just my pet, but my companion and protector. My dog is a Pit Bull, shown in the photo above when he was still a puppy. His name came from the movie Eragon. So you see, this is just one way of finding a name for your dog.

If your dog will be trained to work with the public such as a K-9 partner, a therapy dog or rescue, then it is important to use a name that conveys with the proper image.

Hi , Love your article. Eragon looks so cute. We have two dogs, Wednesday and Jerry named by the kids. three puppies, Diamond and Li'l Wayne and Naugi -(aboriginal word for black) which now has a home with my Niece and her daughter... I wish I could keep them all but the limit is two dogs per household.

Once again , love your article.

Hi Bodylevive. Many years ago I heard a scraping at my door. I opened the door, and there was "Scamp". He was covered in blood and had a broken leg. After a couple of visits to the vet and a ton of steak he recovered, and lived up to his name. Scamp was the name on his collar when he introduced himself by scratching on my door. Scamp wasn't named by me, but he was certainly a rogue, and whoever named him had got his character just right. He stayed with me for about eight years, and then disappeared. I made enquiries, but to no avail. "Scamp", though, although it wasn't a name I would have chosen, described him perfectly. Kindest regards, Kev.

Hi Kevin. That's some story! I'm a dog lover from the heart and I probably would be searching for Scamp now. Thank you for sharing this with me. If you have a photo of Scamp, would you please post it so I can see Scamp.

Thanks, Bodylevive.

Hi Bodylevive. Scamp disappered a long time before digital cameras and I haven't got any conventional photos of him to scan. But in appearance he was a black and brown, medium build mongrel. He was a very mischievous and street-wise dog and particularly loved to scare the living daylights out of the local postman, who always kept a dog biscuit in his pocket in order to stop Scamp eating him alive. Fond memories. Kindest regards, Kev.
