Our dogs are part of the family. Their lives are precious and they become woven into the fabric of our being, just as people can be. For this reason, many dog guardians want to give a human name to their dog. At the same time, dogs aren't humans and there is a tradition of giving them more inventive or funny names which might be inappropriate to give a baby. For this reason, human names for dogs can also be quite funny, cool or simply appropriate for the personality of our dog. At AnimalWised, we bring you our list of 200+ people names for dogs to give you some ideas.
