Many of the most fitting pet names come straight from appearance. While dogs with a tan coat carry a wide variety of names, several of the more popular choices are color related. Tawny, Khaki, and Beige are a few color ideas taken from different shades of light brown. Other typical options include Boots, Honey, Sandy, or anything that bears a similar hue. Exploring related words in other languages is a good way to find unique ideas. Canela (Spanish), Fauve (French), and Gerben (German) are some interesting selections that fit the theme. The word tan quickly brings to mind an image of warm sandy beaches. Potential names could be taken from various sun related skin products. Coppertone and Bronzer are but a few of many promising ideas.
