What do Neil Armstrong, Horton Smith, and Annie Edson Taylor all have in common? They each were credited as being the first person to accomplish something. While many have followed in each of their footsteps, there is definitely something to be said about originality. In this list, we have tried to capture new and unique ideas to help pioneer the dog names of the future. Throughout this page you will encounter many cutting-edge and unfamiliar ideas that are part of the road less traveled and could make all the difference. Much like the first person to achieve something, we hope that these names become trends and not just a statistic.
To help make the case for branching out more clear, Imagine a world where every dog goes by the same name. It would get kind of boring until you verbalized the overused title in a park or around the neighborhood. There is obvious value in making sure that your dog doesn’t have the same name as every other pooch on the block. All too often, owners settle on a typical name like Spot or Max. These aren’t bad names, just overused. Consider the Honda Civic for example. It’s a good quality bang for your buck automobile but everyone and their dog has one. When naming your puppy you want to be creative yet fitting. You are looking for the name that matches your dog but also stands out in the crowd.
The key to finding a name that is truly distinct is to free your mind from experience imposed tracks. There is a reason that names like Spot and Max are common for dogs. Due to their widespread use, an association between the names and dogs are built at an early age. When focusing on dog names, the mind is only able to pull from these previous affiliations. In order to discover unique ideas, you will need to venture outside the box. Put the spotlight on characteristics of your dog and descriptive words that could be good naming material. Try to derive your dog’s name from your own cleverness and creativity rather than from memory.
