Tips for choosing the best dog name. Choosing a dog name is quite a task. The name of our four-legged friend says a lot about ourselves. It is therefore logical that dog owners spend a lot of time choosing a nice name. But where do you start? Below we give you 4 tips for choosing the perfect dog name. If you still can't figure it out after this blog, don't worry. We will give you a helping hand.
Tip 1) Choose a short name
Dogs listen more to sound than to name. That is why it is important that it is not too long. This makes it better to choose a dog name with 1 or 2 syllables. Your dog will remember short names more quickly and it's also easier to say. So a win-win!
Tip 2) Make sure the name doesn't look like a command
When your dog's name is very similar to a command, it can cause confusion. Raf, for example, looks very similar. As a result, your dog may lie down when you call him/her.
Tip 3) Get inspired by your dog's characteristics
A good tip for choosing a nice dog name is to take a good look at your dog. Does your dog have certain characteristics that stand out? For example, some dogs have blue eyes and that's why you could call him/her "Blue". Or if your dog is snow white, you can choose "Snow" or Ice. These names are mainly focused on external characteristics, but you can also be inspired by your dog's character traits. For example, if your dog has a cheerful character, you can call him/her “Joy”.
Tip 4) Choose a dog name with meaning
Sometimes it's nice to give your dog a name with a beautiful meaning. For example, Rex means king in Latin and Beau means beautiful in French. A good tip is to have the meaning translated. Google Translate really is your best friend in this. Choose a beautiful meaning and have it translated into different languages. This way you will automatically find a unique name!
