What Name Would You Choose?
According to Rachel Nuwer, writing in the Smithsonian magazine, popular medieval dog names included “Sturdy, Whitefoot, Hardy, Jakke, Bo, Terri, Troy, Nosewise, Amiable, Nameles, Clenche, Bragge, Ringwood, and Holdfast.” Whew!
Today, some of the most popular names include Max, Charlie, Buddy, Cooper, Jack, and Rocky for male dogs and Bella, Lucy, Daisy, Lola, Luna, Millie, and Sadie for females. Modern naming trends tell us that more than ever, we consider our dogs to be part of the family, and we often share favorite human names with our canine companions.
At Southeastern Guide Dogs, our puppies receive their names from people just like you. Our friends understand that we provide all of our dogs and services at no cost and receive no government funding, and by naming a puppy, they uphold our mission.
