All modern day Shiba Inu are descedents of the San’in, Mino, and Shinshu bloodlines from Japan. Nagano, Gifu, and Tottori are name ideas taken from the Japanese prefectures from which these bloodlines come. Other historical names for the breed come straight from the Japanese language. Common male names include Akira, Chion, Hokuto, and Zen. Favorite female ideas are Daria, Emika, Iona, and Sumire. Every new Shiba Inu owner should be prepared for the ‘Shiba Scream’. Names inspired by this dreaded vocal sound include Siren and Pitch. The Shiba Inu has pretty large teeth and a strong bite for a smaller dog. Some teeth themed names include Fang, Dracula, and Jaws. Other cool ideas can come from movies like the classic Sci-Fi Star Wars films. Han, Chewbacca, Leia, and Greedo are just a few of the more popular names from the series.
