If you are about to bring a new male puppy home, but unsure how to find great dog names, you need look no further than your history books. Lots of books can be found to name your puppy, like baby name books that can be found at the department store or library. Baby name books will give you boy names like Alexander or Buddy or Xavier. These are great boy dog names, too, but they are not the best boy dog names.
Puppy pairs can be the most fun to name. For a boy and girl pair of puppies, history gives us Romeo and Juliet, Tarzan and Jane, Oliver and Annie (if you adopt a couple of orphan dogs), or even Babe and Ruth. Some combinations for a pair of boy dogs can be Abbot and Costello, Sherlock and Holmes, Huck and Finn, or Ali and Baba.
If you are just bringing home one pup, you might have an easier time finding boy dog names from history. Some famed characters from history that make great dog names for watchdogs, or just that pup who is always in trouble, are Frankenstein, Igor, Henry the Eighth, Cerberus (the hound of Hades) or Incubus (the mythological evil spirit).
Some other names from mythology make wonderful boy dog names. Theseus was a King of Athens. Titan was a mythological giant, perfect for large breeds. Neptune and Poseidon, gods of the sea, is a great name for that puppy you can’t keep out of the water. Marduk was a Babylonian god. Ichor was the blood of gods. Boreas was the god of the north winds. Dagan was an Earth god, while Atlas held the heavens on his shoulders. Cyclops, the one-eyed monster of Greek mythology is a great name for a dog with a spot in the middle of his forehead.
Some of the great literature in history gives us some good boy dog names. Ebenezer or Scrooge are great names for your Christmas present puppy, or Tom Thumb if he’s a little dog. You could also go with Dickens, who wrote A Christmas Story, as a good boy dog name. Wilbur, from Charlotte’s Web, was a pig, but is a great name for a dog. Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Zeno, and Cicero were some great Greek and Roman philosophers. Shakespeare gave us Hamlet, Angus, Falstaff, Jachimo (pronounced Yackimo), Escalus, and Demetrius. All are outstanding boy dog names.
Biblical and Hebrew names can be very cool dog names, especially for spiritual owners. Some of these are Jonah, Reuben, Jericho, Tobias, Simon, Moses, Ahab, Cain, and Bartholomew. A unique Hebrew boy dog name would be Zuriel, which means God is my rock.
History offers up some of the coolest boy dog names ever. Everybody is interested in some part of history, whether it is the biblical times or the civil war, boy dog names can be found. Whether you like history from books or Hollywood history, you can find dog names. History gives us dog names that everyone will enjoy.
