Building Unique Game of Thrones Dog Names
While you can simply use the same names presented above, several dog owners have chosen to build their own names. Here are several methods to build your unique dog name:
- Use a description, followed by favorite location: In this idea, you want to take a behavior or feature of your canine, then figure out their favorite location. From there, you can give them a description and an "illegitimate child" name. For example, if your dog loves to dig and explore the mountains, you could name them "Explorer Stone" (Stone is the last name of an illegitimate child from the Vale). Another example could be "Swimming River" (River is the last name of an illegitimate child from the Riverlands).
- Take part of a character nickname: In this example, you take part of a character name and modify it to suit the dog. For example, a dog that chases birds could be the "High Sparrow Chaser." Another example could be, "The Mountain Hound". You could even simply add "Direwolf" to the end or beginning of their name. (Just make sure your vet knows they aren't actually a wolf...as many vets will not treat wild animals)
- Use a pun: This is one of the most dangerous techniques, because puns can wear out very quickly. One of the best ways to use a pun name is to take an existing name and modify several characters. For example, Khal Drogo could become Khal Dog-o. Another example could be Brienne of Tarth becoming Brienne of Bark-th.
