Tips for Choosing a Hotel-Themed Name for Your Dog

Match Your Dog’s Personality: Just as hotels have their unique ambiance and character, so do our pups. A sophisticated and poised dog might be well-suited for “Savoy” or “Waldorf”, while a more playful and energetic dog could be a perfect “Bellagio” or “Indigo”.

Consider Pronunciation: While “Château” or “Montage” might sound fancy, ensure that everyone in the family can pronounce the name easily. An easily pronounceable name ensures your dog recognizes it and responds promptly.

Length Matters: Shorter names or names that can be shortened into nicknames can be easier for training purposes. “Hilton” can be affectionately shortened to “Hilly”, and “Marriott” to “Rio”.

Think About Your Travels: If you’ve traveled and stayed in a memorable hotel, naming your dog after that place can be a beautiful tribute to your experiences. Every time you call out to your puppy, you’ll be reminded of that special trip.

Consider the Breed’s Origin: For instance, if you have a French breed such as a Poodle or a Bichon Frise, a name like “Sofitel” or “Moulin” (inspired by Moulin Rouge) might be apt.

Avoid Confusing Associations: While “Ritz” might evoke luxury, “Ritzy” might sound like “ritzy”, a term with luxury connotations–but would that be the best name for a hunting dog?

Test it Out Loud: Say the name out loud multiple times. Does it roll off your tongue? Does it feel right? If it feels forced or awkward, you might want to reconsider.

Get Feedback: Share the name with friends or family. They might offer insights or associations you hadn’t thought of.

Remember, It’s for the Dog’s Lifetime: While it’s fun to choose a trendy or quirky name, remember that your dog will carry this name for his or her entire life (unless you decide to change the name down the road). Ensure it’s a name that will stand the test of time.
