Dogs are the most loyal friend a human being could have. They are sensitive, emotional, and extremely understanding. Above all, their love is unconditional. Bringing them home is like having a newborn baby, completely innocent, and without an ounce of deception.
However, just like a newborn baby’s parent, novice dog owners are often confused about what to call their new downy baby. Some of them name their pups after famous cartoon characters like Bruno, Goofy, etc. Others use the names of memorable characters from history, myths, legends, and literature. Besides that, some people name their dogs based on their unique characteristics.
However, one must take into account certain factors before naming their pup. It is because the latter’s response will depend on the type of name itself.
Points to Remember Before Selecting a Dog’s Name
Following are some of the points you must remember before naming your dog:
- Select a name that’s convenient to shout aloud.
- The name must be unique to your pup. It shouldn’t be similar to any of your other pets or family members.
- Avoid using slow and lengthy names. Dogs find it challenging to respond to them. Choose a short and rough-sounding name.
- Names having two syllables like Hudson, Lucky, Rocky, etc. are preferable as studies show that dogs find it easier to respond to such two-syllabled names.
