Cane Corso Names

      The Cane Corso (also referred to as Italian Mastiff) originated in Italy as a loyal guard dog and excellent hunter. Being a very strong breed with a protective nature, many owners choose tough military related names. In fact, the breed is thought to have descended directly from Canis Pugnax (a breed used in ancient Roman military). Tank, Panzer, and Sergeant are a few examples that are popular among Corsi. With an Italian origin, it is not at all uncommon for a Cane Corso to carry an Italian name. Many choose the names of famous Italian historical figures or Italian-American mobsters. Capone and Lucky are popular mobster choices. As with any sizeable dog, names of powerful heroes and sports figures are prominent. Tyson, Hulk, and Goliath are just a few names that fit the bill. You will notice a few themes that carry throughout the names on the list. Most of them are strong, powerful, and commanding. These fit well on a breed that is often sought after as home protectors.
