The Great Pyrenees is such a beautiful breed of dog that deciding on a name can be very easy or very difficult. As many choose to name their dog after a physical or personality trait, there is almost no end to name choices for the Pyr. Their size, their beautiful white coat and their dignified grace are all inspiring possibilities. Depending on how one wants to go, names can be ultra creative or ultra traditional. No matter what the choice, it is important to remember that the name will have a special place in a person's history and not only represents the dog but its owner as well.

The most striking trait of the Great Pyrenees is its gorgeous white coat. Some examples of names inspired by this feature can be:

  • Argent- male, whitish

  • Akasma- female, climbing white rose

  • Blake- male, white

  • Bianca- female, white or pure

  • Casper- male, white

  • Chenoa- white dove

  • Daisy- female, white flower

  • Fingal- male, fair haired stranger

  • Guinivere- female, fair one

  • Irving- male, handsome and fair

  • Naturally, the Pyr's size can also be a source of inspiration as well. Examples of names that refer to size can be:

  • Argus- male, giant with a hundred eyes

  • Olwyn- female, daughter of the giant

  • Enzo- male, a giant

  • Titus- male, giant

  • Sequoia- male or female, from the giant redwood tree

  • Titania- female, the land of the giants

  • Tai- male or female, very big

  • Kentaro- male, big boy

  • Jupiter- male, the largest planet

  • Dasha- female, big hero

  • Names can also be based on the breed's disposition. The most common words used to describe the Great Pyrenees run along the lines of loyal, calm, protective or regal. As each dog has its own personality, names can also be based on distinct character traits as well.

    Some good examples of names for the Pyr based on disposition can be as follows:

  • Acelin- female, dignified

  • Alaric- male, noble ruler

  • Bo- male, helpful

  • Bonnie- female, sweet and good

  • Conrad- male, brave

  • Clementine- female, kindhearted

  • Dakota- male or female, good friend

  • Della- female, nobleness

  • Esmond- male, protective grace

  • Edwina- female- prosperous friend

  • When naming a Great Pyrenees for the purpose of registering with a reputable kennel club, it is a good idea to first research the organization's naming guidelines. While some may have strict requirements, others may have none at all. It should be noted that there are no hard and fast rules for naming a dog for registration, though some prefer to incorporate the breeder's name or the dog's parents in some way. While a Pyr can have a formal name for the purpose of registration, they usually go by a less formal name in their daily lives.
