Alcohol dog names

Through the years, dog names have changed. Giving a dog a name is special to us, in our western culture but there are cultures in which dogs are not seen as special. They are sometimes even seen as food! Many years ago dogs were used as working animals, which sometimes they still are now. Think about guard dogs and hunting dogs. Many breeds were bred especially for the purpose of herding or hunting. This is something you can keep in mind when choosing the right name for your dog.

A historical name

The first dog name recorded in history is that of a dog named Abuwtiyuw. When George Reisner led an expedition in 1935 in Egypt, they stumbled upon an inscription on a grave at the great cemetery. This indicated the burial of a dog named Abuwtiyuw. What was so special about this grave was the fact that the dog was buried with honors and in the time Abuwtiyuw lived, only noblemen and kings were buried that way! The Egyptian King worshipped his dog so much that he gave him his own grave.

The perfect name

Whether you are looking for alcohol related dog names or Mexican food related dog names, you want to find the perfect name. What makes a name perfect? That is something you are the only judge of. If you, the owner, believes the name is perfect then it most definitely is! Remember this at all times, you get to choose. Take your time in choosing the name as well. Really think it through! Make sure you love the name and will also still like it after a few years as well. Besides that, there are a few things you can keep in mind. Think these aspects through and you will, for sure, get to that one special name.

The sound of the name

Alcoholic drink names for dogs can be good names for dogs when it comes to the sound of it. Sound is an important aspect of the name because your puppy needs to be able to really understand you. Research has shown that dogs respond better to certain letters that can be pronounced clearly and hard. This comes down to letters like ‘s’, ‘t’ and names ending in ‘y’ or ‘a’. For example Bailey would be a very good name because the ‘b’ can always be pronounced with emphasis and the name ends on ‘y’ which makes a very good sound as well.

The length of the name

Dog names after alcohol can often be a bit long. This is not completely wrong but it is something to think about. A longer name will often be harder for you to pronounce clearly in emergency situations and that will make it hard for your puppy to always understand you. If your puppy is about to run off onto a busy street you will be alarmed and call the name quickly. This will be easier done with a short name than a long one. Stick to a name of about one or two syllables, that is best.

The complexity of the name

Hand in hand with the length of the name goes the complexity of it. A long name is often more complex but a short name can be complex as well. If you are not able to pronounce the name clearly you might have to think twice. The alcoholic beverage Licor 43 might not be such a good dog name but Jack, from Jack Daniels, is a great example of alcohol beverage dog names. You could decide to pronounce Licor 43 as liquor forty-three but is that really a good name? It would still be too long and trying to pronounce it the Spanish way might be really hard. Even if you do speak Spanish, the name would be too long.
Think about these things and you will find that one name that is perfect for your new dog.

Famous dog names from history

There have been some dogs that did a very brave thing or changed the world a bit. Just like we can, dogs can become famous as well. Some dogs are remembered for their extreme loyalty or a heroic deed. Often the beautiful relationship between dog and human is reflected in these deeds. A good example of a story like that is that of the Japanese Akita Hachiko. Hachiko is not an alcoholic drink name for dogs but his story is quite magnificent.

Hachiko walked his owner to the train station in Tokyo every day and waited there for him to return from work. When his owner returned at the station after a long day, he and Hachiko walked home together. Doing the same thing the next day. When Hachiko’s owner passed away, Hachiko kept waiting. Never leaving the spot in front of the station, day in day out. This extreme loyalty did not go unnoticed. After Hachiko passed away a statue was put in his place and there has even been made a movie about the story. You can still find the statue at the station in Tokyo to this day.

Another very famous dog is Laika the Russian stray dog. She became famous because she was the first dog to orbit the earth! Sovjet professors picked her up from the streets of Moscow and trained her to be able to stay in confined spaces and live off fluid food. Sadly, Laika was never destined to survive the ride. The spacecraft was designed to burn up into space but Laika already died 3 hours into the ride.

Alright, one last famous dog. Not an alcohol dog name but a lovely TV character! Lassie, the Collie from the Lassie movie and TV show. If you are about to own a cute Collie, Lassie might be the perfect name! Lassie is also a unisex name, we believe. After all, in the movie and TV series the character of Lassie is a girl but she was actually played by male collies! This was because male collies have a longer, thicker coat which looked better on screen.

The purpose of a name

As we mentioned, a name is important. Especially the length, sound and complexity of the name are important. Some names are good for specific breeds and types as well. A dog’s name also says a lot about his character, it shows other people what he is like. Of course this is only a first impression but it can tell a lot about you, the relationship between you and your dog and your dog himself. If your dog is a big German Shepherd and her name is Lucy, she could be as sweet as the name itself. These are things you can take in mind but do not have to. After all, most of the time these things come naturally.

Some breeds were bred for certain purposes, like hunting dogs. These are Labradors, Retrievers, Beagles, Setters etc. If you are about to own a dog of a hunting dog breed, it can be fun to give him a name that suits his hunting instincts, or not at all. This could be names like Chase, Sniff, Hunter, Arrow or Scout.

Whatever name you end up choosing for your new dog, there is one thing you ought to remember at all times. This is time. Take your time. Really, you do not have to rush this decision. Even if your puppy is coming home with you in a few days, it is completely fine to think about it. The first few days your puppy is at home with you he already has so much to learn, it is fine to teach him his name a few days later. You can take these first few days to really get to know your puppy and then you will know which name suits him best! Make a list of the names you like, practice them out loud and see how your puppy responds to them. Calling the name out loud with your puppy in front of you will soon let you know if it is perfect or not. Good luck!
