Choosing French dog names
French is a beautiful language, at least that is what most people agree with.
Giving your pooch a French dog name might just be your best bet in getting a unique name for your furry friend. Dog lovers and other people will appreciate and complement your dog name choice.
However, you still have to make sure that the name you choose will be fit for your dog.
This article is supposed to partly help you with that because at times this can seem like an overwhelming prospect.
Here are some tips that you can follow to make it much easier for you:
- Pick a name that matches the breed of your dog. For example, if you have a small dog breed you might as well choose a name that fits them like Fleur. And if your dog is large like the German Shepherd use a moniker that will best fit him like Leon for example.
- Learn the correct pronunciation of the name that you pick. Unlike English words, French names have their unique pronunciation which captures their romantic flow.
- Get inspiration from the French culture, food, and places. You can even name your dog after some of the French celebrities.
- Practice calling out that name even in the park. A dog name would not make any sense if your pooch does not know it. Training your dog to remember the name is very important especially when you want to recall him. That is why you also have to make sure that you get the pronunciation right.
- Choose a shorter French name if you are having difficulties with the pronunciation. A name like Bruno or Coco would even be easier for your dog to remember and for your to pronounce.
