Choosing a name for your dog can be difficult. You want it to sound like the perfect fit, but you also don’t want to end up with something that’s too common or boring. This article provides 8 tips for choosing a dog name–including black dogs!
Tip # One: Start with a Personality Name. You want the name to sound like it fits well together, but you also don’t want something that will be too common or boring. A personality name is perfect! Choose something that describes your dog’s favorite activity, their best friend they love more than anything in the world–anything can work as long as it feels right for both of you.
Tip # Two: Pick Something Unique and Specific to Your Dog’s Breed. If your pup has a specific breed (like Black Lab) then make sure to find out what other dogs from this breed are called by finding them online or talking about these names with experienced owners at local parks/shelters/pet stores etc). There are tons of names that are specific to a certain breed, and you can be sure your pup will feel special by having their own unique name.
Tip # Three: Name Your Dog in the Language of Their Ancestors. If we don’t know where our dog’s ancestors come from–which is often true for dogs who were rescued or adopted at an older age–we might want to look into what country they may have originally been from and give them a name in that language! This would work especially well if there were any family members with the same heritage as my dog (a German Shephard). Other languages worth looking up include French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian etc)
Tip # Four: Match the Sound & Feel of Your Dog’s Name With Their Personality. For example, if my dog were a cuddly little black pup who loves to play fetch with her tennis ball, I might name them “Yodel.” Yodeling is the sound that people make when they’re singing high notes–and dogs also yowl and howl at certain times of day (usually dusk).
Tip # Five: Select Two Names for Your Dog That Sound Great Together! Given the diversity in American culture these days–not just between humans but within animal breeds themselves–this may be your best bet. You can always change it later on down the road after you know what type of personality your new friend has!
Another Tip: Consider Whether or Not The Name
Tip # __: Give the dog a nickname. The first few days with your new pup are usually chaotic, so many people just refer to their new addition as “the puppy” until they can come up with a name for it.
Dog lovers will often pick out names that sound good together or imply something about the breed of their choice- like naming two pugs “Bert” and “Ernie.” If you’re not sure what kind of dog you want (or have), try looking at some different breeds and see if any stand out to you. You don’t need to know what type of personality your future pet has in order to choose its name!
Clear favorites generally emerge from one’s time with the pup.
Tip # __: Don’t choose a name because it sounds neat or is popular right now. This advice might seem contradictory to Tip # __, and while there are exceptions (the more unusual names for your breed), this tip should be applied in many cases. A “cool” dog deserves an equally cool name! And if you have one of those dogs that will just never come up with a name? Try naming them after yourself- I’m sure your new best friend would appreciate the gesture! But don’t worry about what others think; at the end of the day, you’ll always know who they belong to on some level when they share their moniker with you alone..
The Three Best Dog Names We’ve Heard
The Three Best Dog Names We’ve Heard: “Ajax,” by the dog’s owner, because of their black fur. This is a great name for people who are looking to fit in at canine social events and want something that sounds fierce!
“Cato” (Latin origin), as this moniker suits his dark features perfectly. The word comes from “kataein-” meaning to cut down or slay. Consider naming your pup after a star-fighter if you’re into science fiction movies too! Or go with an ancient Roman soldier like Cato if history is more up your alley..
Tip # __: Don’t choose a name because it sounds neat or is popular right now. This advice might seem obvious, but a dog’s name is the most important thing to them and should be given with plenty of thought.
Tip # __: Ask your pup if they have any preferences. Some dogs respond better to certain names than others do! If you’re having trouble coming up with anything good for your black dog, try asking them what their favorite food or toy is..
Tip #__: Use inspiration from around you – even colors can make great names! Think about how much time Black Dogs spend in spaces like night clubs and dark alleys when coming up with ideas that both suit his coloring well and sound sinister enough not to startle him at first meeting (which would mean no matter which one he chooses, it’s perfect!)
Tip #__: Get creative with your Black Dog’s name. They may not be the most common breed, but they are still a dog and deserve to have their own unique identity! Mixing in some words from other languages might help them develop an interesting personality while giving you something more than just “furball” or “lazybones”.
Tip #__: Find a friend for whom this will make sense as well – if you’re choosing two names and one is black, it would probably work better if the other was too so that his little sibling can share in their color-based connection. Or try pairing up each of your dogs based on similar traits like size or favorite past time; whatever makes selecting a perfect match easier for you.
Tip #__: Be creative with the spelling of your Black Dog’s name, too! You could choose to spell it phonetically or use a different language altogether; like changing their name from “Pinky” (like the color) to “Pincho”. Or if they’re named after someone in your family tree – say for example, one is named Duke and another is named Duchess – try switching up their names so that both are equally represented on ceremonial occasions without facing any conflicts over who gets what call-name first.
Tip #__: Don’t forget about nicknames! A lot of people end up naming two dogs at once because something clicks when they hear them bark back-to-back. If this is the case for you, try creating a unique and catchy nickname to help them differentiate between each other. Tip #__: Don’t get too caught up in what others think about your dog’s name! If they’re not amused by it or don’t like its meaning, well then just ignore that person as if their opinion doesn’t matter. Keep on doing you because every living being needs some form of independence from everyone else at one point or another. Tip #__: That said, there are specific names which can be perceived negatively – even though black dogs have nothing to do with this issue whatsoever. So beware when choosing such names since these could bring out negative connotations in people who might know someone whose dark skinned-
