The history of naming dogs

Dogs are often seen as a man’s best friend, and this has a long history. Dogs are the first animal that was tamed and kept as a pet by humankind. The way we see dogs still differs per culture but the fact that most breeds are pets, and not wild, is true. In our modern western culture we see dogs as part of the family but in other cultures dogs are sometimes seen as food or simply live as strays. Across the world there are over 1 billion dogs of which only 170 million live amongst loving families. You have decided to become or be one of those loving families and that is amazing. Every dog deserves that and most definitely deserves a perfect name!

When humankind first started keeping dogs as pets we did not give them very original names. For a long time dogs were simply called ‘dog’. Especially as working dogs, for example dogs in front of a dairy farmers milk carriage, was what dogs were first used for. Later the relationship between man and dog became stronger and more valuable which led to giving dogs a more personal name. Of course you can decide what you want name your dog, he is your dog after all! And since nowadays dogs are literally given the most extraordinary names ever, nothing is bad or ridiculous. Besides that, who cares what someone else thinks? You are the owner, he’s your dog and you have to love it. Remember this at all times, that it does not matter what you choose as long as you think it’s perfect.

Famous dogs

The first example of dogs becoming a man’s best friend came from the Etruscans in Ancient Egypt, here a grave for a dog named Abuwtiyuw was found. The oldest domesticated dog according to recorded history. In that time dogs played an important role in noblemen’s and king’s lives, mainly as hunting dogs. When George Reisner led the Harvard-Boston Expedition in 1935 they found an inscription in the great cemetery west of the Pyramid of Cheops at Giza that indicated the burial of a dog named Abuqtiyuw. The most remarkable about this finding was that back in those days, only noblemen and king were buried this way. Abuwtiyuw was buried with honors, the King had loved him so much that he gave him is own grave when the dog died. As you might know there are many more famous dogs from history. Maybe some of them have names that will be good names for all white dogs?

A famous dog from history is a small dog named Laika. Laika was a small, stray dog from the streets of Moscow. Professors picked her up from the streets to train her and send her off to space. Laika was the first animal to orbit the earth! Sadly she was never meant to survive the ride since the spacecraft was designed to burn up in space. Later, research showed that Laika already died only a few hours into the trip. Due to heat and stress. Since Laika was a stray it is not quite sure what breed she was but she does look a bit like a small white dog. Which makes Laika a perfect name for your small white dog!

Another famous dog from history is of course Hachiko, which has got to sound even more familiar to you. Hachiko was a Japanese Akita and walked his owner to train station in Tokyo every day. When his owner passed away, Hachiko kept waiting at the station. Day in day out, never leaving. Later when Hachiko himself passed, a statue of the dog was put in his waiting spot. To remember the dog for his remarkable loyalty.

Another example that could be a lovely name for any dog really, is the name of Barry der Menschenretter (also known as Barry). Barry was a famous St. Bernard that worked as a mountain rescue dog. He lived in a monastery close to the Swiss-Italian border and saved the lives of over 40 people. Do you feel like your dog is as brave as Barry? Then it could be a perfect name!

What the name means

To your dog, his name might not mean so much. To you of course it does. Dogs do not understand that their name is literally their name. They do not perceive the worth with value like we do. To dogs, their name is simply a way of communication. It means that you want your dog’s attention. Just like when you call ‘sit’ the dog knows he has to sit but it does work best when you teach your dog his name first. Because who has to sit, lie down or stay? Exactly, your dog. To help your dog understand his name as best as possible there are a few things you can take in mind when choosing the name.

A first important thing to check is that you are able to pronounce the name clearly. To make sure your dog is able to understand you in every possible situation you have to be able to pronounce the name clearly. Maybe you are able to pronounce a long, complicated name perfectly fine but imagine you are in a stressful or dangerous situation. Your dog is about to run off into danger, a busy street for example, you will be shocked a bit as well so you will call the name hastily and quickly. Are you still able to call the complete name? No, you will have probably shortened it a bit. Alexander quickly turns into Alex or Bartholomeus turns into Bart. If this is the case then it is way easier to name your dog Alex or BArt from the beginning. Switching between two names all the time will be very confusing for your dog, especially if he is a young puppy. Keep that in mind.

Another thing to think about is that certain letters or sounds work better. For example the letter ‘s’ is often a hard sounds. This works really good for dogs. Also names ending in ‘ay’, ‘ey’ or a similar sound will be good. For example the name Barry, with the loud ‘r’ is a good name for dogs. It is short, which is also incredibly important. As we said, the longer the name the more complicated you will make it for yourself and for your puppy. Luckily. great names for white dogs can of course be anything. Make sure you pick a name that you absolutely love and to you, sounds perfect.
