How to Choose an Amazing Afghan Hound Dog Name
Choosing an Afghan Hound dog name can be a challenge. You’ll want to choose something that reflects your pet’s personality and sounds good when pitted against competing names.
Use the below tips to brainstorm names and come up with one that you will really like:
Get inspiration from your favorite movie, book, or TV show characters.
If there are certain fictional characters that you think would make great dog names, do some research! Keep in mind that even though the name is popular with humans, it might not be popular with other dogs. For example, if you love Harry Potter, Hermione Granger is a fun choicejust make sure your pup isn’t a male.
Get inspiration from your favorite food, drink, candy, or holiday.
If you think a particular type of food or candy would make a cool dog name, start brainstorming! For example, if you love the color pink and cotton candy is your favorite kind of candy, you could choose Cotton for a girl’s name and Cottontail for her brother. If you love beer so much that it has replaced water in your life (no judgment!), consider naming your pup after one of your favorite beers. For example, My Dog is an Anchor might be perfect for someone who loves Anchor Steam Beer. Or if Hallowe’en is always on your mind, you could choose Harley for your male pup and Hallween for your female.
Name your dog after a famous or historical figure.
If you admire someone, consider naming your Afghan Hound after them! There’s no rule stating that you must name your pup after a living person, so feel free to choose the person of your dreamseven if they’re long since passed away.
