How to Name a Dog

Naming your dog is a big deal! After all, you are committing to calling them something for the rest of their life. Once they learn it, you really can’t change it. So, how exactly do you make that final decision?

Pick Your Favorite Character

You can never go wrong by choosing your favorite character to name your dog after. You may love Harry Potter or Hagrid the most. Let’s pretend your favorite character is Hermione Granger. You can use Hermione for a female cat, and for a male cat, Granger.

Draw a Name Out of a Hat

If you have several great Harry Potter names in mind, you could always draw a name out of the hat, and see what happens. You can have a new name quickly, and you don’t have to worry about it anymore.

At worst, picking the wrong name will certainly make you realize which one you actually like pretty quickly. So either way, it’s usually a win.

Take a Poll

If you’re a person who loves getting people’s opinions online, you could always try to make a poll. If any of your friends or acquaintances are fellow Harry Potter fans, they can give their two cents.
