How to Choose a Pet Name
1. Choose a language of origin
My favorite part of choosing a pet’s name is picking what language I want to use to inspire that name.
Some of my favorite languages to choose pet names from is Hawaiian, Japanese, Spanish, and English of course.
Choose a language that best fits your personality. What language is the most beautiful to you? What language does your family speak? Di you enjoy watching shows in different languages? Use these to inspire your pet’s name.
2. Choose a category to inspire your pet’s new name.
After you pick the language your pet’s name is going to be in, decide what category you want to inspire your pet’s name?
Do you want your pet named after food? Do you have a favorite location that sounds great as a name?
Some names inspired by categories like this include Noodle or Paris.
Narrowing down a category you want to use for your pet’s name makes it much easier to choose one.
3. Choose how you want your pet’s name to feel.
One of the most important things to consider when choosing your pet’s name is how it feels.
Do you want a one-syllable name? Are you ok with a 4 syllable name? Does it feel natural when you call your pet that name?
Your pet’s name can be cute, funny, perky, soft, delicate, tough, and more to choose from.

It might not seem important, but if you need help narrowing down a pet’s name pick what letter you want your pet’s name to start with.
