Beagle Names – 200 Great Ideas For Naming Your Beagle
In the world there are many different breeds of dogs. Some have been bred for hunting or protection purposes while others are used for show and performance purposes.
There are also some dogs which were originally intended only to be companions, but now they have become popular too. These include the pug, bulldog, dachshund and even the husky!
The most common breed of dog in the United States is the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT). They are known for their loyalty, love of family and being very protective.
Their popularity has increased due to movies like “The Departed” where one was played by Leonardo DiCaprio. However, these dogs do not belong exclusively to Hollywood; they are also found all over the country. The APBT is a medium sized dog with a short coat that tends towards black coloration. They tend to be loyal and loving, but can also get aggressive when provoked.
There are several types of names for the APBT:
1) The Original Name: This is the original name given to the breed by its breeder.
Usually it refers to the place where this dog originated from such as New York City or Los Angeles. If this dog belongs to someone else, then they may use any other city or town in America as their origin.
2) The Nickname: Some people prefer to give their dogs nicknames because they believe that the formal name does not match the personality of their dog.
These can range from being cute to something more endearing.
3) The Fantasy Name: Some owners tend towards giving their dogs names which sound like something from a Fantasy story to something more upbeat and modern.
These can range from ‘Rocky’ to ‘Gideon’.
4) The ‘Realistic’ Name: Other owners are more likely to give their dogs a name which sounds like it could belong to a human being and not just an animal.
These can range from ‘Bob’ to ‘Harvey’.
5) The Celebrity Name: There are also people who like to ascribe their dog’s name to a famous person, whether they are living or dead.
This ranges from ‘Elvis’ to ‘Madonna’.
6) The ‘Alpha’ Name: There are names which owners use for their dogs which project an air of leadership.
These can range from ‘King’ to ‘General’.
7) The Descriptive Name: There are owners who want to give their dog’s a name which describes its character or appearance in some way.
These can range from ‘Blackie’ to ‘Spot’.
8) The Obscure Name: Finally, there are owners who simply pick a word which is not common or doesn’t sound like it could be the name of a person or animal.
These can range from ‘Woof’ to ‘Gizmo’.
Use any combination of these eight types of names to give your APBT a suitable name.
