Calling all music lovers. If you are a fan of rock music and just got a new dog, here is a list of names for you.

Everyone has that favorite song. Maybe it's a headbanging heavy metal tune, or something soft and sentimental, like a folk song. Whatever the type, music can evoke strong emotions, and it's fun to name dogs after good songs.

Get to know your dog and his or her personality. I'm guessing a song will come to you pretty soon, but in case you need some extra inspiration, here are loads of ideas. Admittedly, this list doesn't come close to covering all the possibilities out there, but there are more than 225 to choose from, so it's a good start.

You'll find lists for hard, classic, punk, southern and folk rock. They are also divided by male and female suggestions, but many of the selections can be used for either. So if your dog is a rocker, or you just want him to be one, think about one of these names.

Southern Rock

Generally a little more laid back, and with a touch of a drawl, southern rock names might be good for a dog south of the Mason-Dixon line or for one that just wants to live down there.

        Hi Peggy -

        I'm hoping lots of people find their dog names in this article. We didn't name our dogs after songs, but while compiling this list there were a lot that appealed to me. Thanks for ready!

        None of our dogs had any of these names however my mother once had a dog named Missy. My aunt and uncle had one named Maggie and my mother had a cat named Angie. I will bet that many people who read this will find one of their pet names here. (Smile)
