The Mystery of the Right Dog Name

As new dog owners, one of the first things we want to do is find the perfect name for our baby furballs.

-A custom name. Here are some things to consider before picking a boy name for your dog:
Your dog will learn one- or two-syllable names more quickly.

-Key to praising and scolding is the tone of voice. Stretched-out vowel sounds guarantee you the dog’s undivided attention.

-The name must be acceptable to the whole family and everyone who lives with the dog.

-Little children often can’t pronounce long, complicated names correctly. The simpler, the better.

-If possible, settle on a single name. If there is a shortened form or a corresponding nickname, be practical and choose the shorter one (such as Cleo from Cleopatra).

-A dog’s name should not evoke any negative connotations. Otherwise people will easily transfer unpleasant memories of people or situations to the dog.

-Avoid taboo names. Dog names should neither offend religious convictions nor make fun of people.

-Avoid awkward and embarrassing names. It’s done to be funny, but who wants to call out in the park for Piglet or Killer?

-Forget trendy names. The names of prominent television and movie dogs bring glamour into the house.

But remember: whereas stars will be gone tomorrow, your dog will bear the name for its whole life.

-Consider the question of dignity. A name shouldn’t demean a dog. Double-whopper and Stinky are no names for a dog.
