For example, if your daughter is named Kaitlyn you can create a name using some of the letters. Try Lyn, Tile, Kan, Tyn-Tyn or Kit. If your son’s name is Jackson try naming his dog Nak, Jon, San, Kas or Jas. Your child may also try naming his or her dog using names of their favorite cartoon characters or superhero.

Your dog is a part of your family and his or her name reflects you. Many dog owners may not realize this, but how many times have you seen a dog owner walking their dog on the street and you go over to have a chat with the owner only to find a tiny sized dog is named killer? This reflects the dog owner, since they are the one responsible for naming their dog. Often times this situation is found humorous and it shows that the dog owner has a sense of humor. Whatever name you decide on, make sure it is special for your dog.
