A brief history of dog names

As you might know, most dogs have been created by mankind. A long time ago humans started domesticating animals and breeding them. This is how many dog breeds were created and scattered across the world. Some breeds are also very much adapted to a certain climate and for example need extra heating in extreme winters because their own coat is not suitable for that kind of weather. Across the world, only 17% percent of all dogs live as pets. All the others are strays. This is of course a very sad thought but in some cultures dogs are simply treated differently than in our western culture. Just like years ago, in some cultures dogs are used more as working dogs. Which for a lot of dogs, is completely okay. They love it!

Throughout the years there have been many dogs already, often living as a man’s best friend. Some have become really famous because of something they did or because of the human that was their owner. One of the first domesticated dogs was a dog in ancient Egypt, his name was Abuwtiyuw. The reason we believe Abuwtiyuw was highly appreciated in his time is because on a discovery in 1935 his grave was found. Abuwtiyuw’s grave was  special because he was buried with honors. Usually only noblemen of the Etruscans in Ancient Egypt were buried this way. The reason was probably because Abuwtiyuw was the Egyptian King’s best friend and stood by the King throughout his whole life. The king loved him so much that when Abuwtiyuw passed, he gave him his own grave.

A few other famous dogs from history and their stories have been listed below. Maybe none of them are suitable as large breed female dog names but it could always be that there is a name in there that you really like!

Guinefort or Burgundy

Guinefort was venerated as a saint and said to have lived near Lyon in the 13th century. Guinefort died a very sad but heroic death actually, which is also what made him a saint. The legend says that Guinefort protected a child from a snake, the snake wanted to attack the child while it was in its cot. Guinefort killed the snake but when the father of the child came home and saw Guinefort covered in blood and the cot turned over, he assumed Guinefort had killed his child. The father killed the dog but when he saw his child was unharmed and he saw the body of the snake, he regretted his actions. Therefore he made Guinefort a saint and buried him formally. It has been said that miracle healing took place near the grave afterwards.


One very famous dog we all know! Or atleast must have heard of. Hachiko was a Japanese Akita, famous for his loyalty. Hachiko walked his owner to the train station in Tokyo every day and when is owner returned in the afternoon, Hachiko was there waiting for him. When his owner passed, Hachiko kept waiting for him at the station. Day and night. Hachiko was loved and appreciated by the community so much that there is now a statue of him in his place, at the station where he was always waiting.


Laika was a Russian street dog, picked up from the streets of Moscow and trained by professors to go into space. They trained Laika to be able to stay in small spaces, because the spacecraft she would later be in was also small. Eventually Laika was the first animal to go into space and also the first one to orbit the earth, she did not return alive. The spacecraft was designed to burn into space. The sad story about Laika is that later, in 2000, a study showed that Laika must have passed inside the spacecraft after 3 hours already. She did not even make it for a very long time. Due to stress and the spacecraft being way too hot, Laika passed away.

One last tip

A final tip from Tinki: keep the name short. Different studies have proven that dogs listen better to short and clear terms than long and difficult sentences. When teaching our dog the command ‘sit’, we have to stay clear as well. Since a dog’s name is command to them as well, it is wise to keep the name short and simple. Besides that, you might be able to call a long name easily but when it comes down to having the shout the name in a hurry, it will get difficult. Long names are being shortened easily and that will only be confusing for your young dog.
