100+ Greek Dog Names | Unique Names for Your Puppy

There’s no moment quite like bringing home a new dog. You’re incredibly excited and frustratingly overwhelmed all at once. Your to-do list is endless: buying toys, delicious treats, a comfortable bed for your pooch to rest in and – of course – choosinga suitable name that the dog and everyone else in your family will love.

If you have Greek heritage, giving your dog a Greek name is a way to pay homage to it. Unsurprisingly, most people who give their dogs Greek names use names of the gods and goddesses of antiquity. If you have inclinations for the road not taken, you can base the name on associations with your favorite Greek food or drink. That way you’ll be reminded of it constantly.

There are some fabulous sounding names that come from fine dining, but also fashion, celebrity culture, art, history, and perhaps even your own family. Most importantly, the name should be the perfect fit for the dog. You’ll be saying it very often. Names like “hit” and “nit”, which sound like commands, are best avoided.

If the dog is agile and fast, a name like Zeus would be perfect.  Zeus was worshipped at Olympic games sites. The name of the god of contest, competition, and envy gave rise to the words “zealous” and “zeal.”

Your journey with your new pet begins with naming it. Enjoy yourself, use your imagination, and explore your top options to see which one sticks. In some situations, that’s what it’s all about. You might find yourself inspired by a name that’s a bit hard to say. Keep in mind that your friends, family, and vets will need to pronounce and spell the name for an indefinite time in the future.
