Thinking of naming your pet on St. Patrick’s Day? Why not call it something that captures the day perfectly, something traditionally Irish or fun, something like this lot…
10 – Cara (In Irish, Cara simply means “a friend.”)
Treat a dog well and it will be your friend for life, so what a perfect name to give he or she.
9 – Fiadh (Fiadh is an old Irish word meaning “wild,” in the sense of a wild animal.)
Your dog might not be from the wild, but it might act wild at times and this Irish name is perfect for those dogs with more energy than most.
8 – Orla (Also spelt Orlaith, this name means “golden princess” or “golden sovereign” in Irish.)
While it won’t work for most dogs, if you have a Golden labrador that needs a name this is perfect and captures the beauty of Irland and its language.
7 – Cliodhna (This name comes from the word “clodhna,” meaning “shapely.”)
This name is for those dogs who are a little bigger around the waist than some of those skinner dogs like Whippets and Greyhounds.
6 – Caragh (This name means “friend” and “beloved.”)
Once again this is a classic name and really captures everything that a well looked after dog can bring to the family home.
5 – Nessa (This name can mean “rough” or “not gentle.”)
This name might be more feminine than some of these others, but it is for those dogs who have a little bit of bite in them. Nessa is a name the postman will fear, but the family will love.
4 – Conor (Usually translated as “lover of hounds.”)
Conor is the pack leader, a dog that leads others and is always showing them what to do in life. Conor might even boss the family cat around
3 – Eoin (This name means “young.”)
This is for the male puppies out there or those dogs who are always young at heart and playful in life to the fullest.
2 – Cathal (Meaning “strong in battle.”)
This is for the dogs who survive and have a bit of fight in them. Maybe they survived an illness as a puppy or they are boisterous and strong.
1 – Ciaran (Meaning “little dark one.”)
Just got yourself a little puppy who is black? Then this might be the name you are looking for. This is for those puppies who you just know will be trouble later in life.
