When we adopt a new dog into our home, we are bound to love them to the moon and back. Since our love for them is out of this world, it might be appropriate to name them after a star in the night sky. These celestial names for dogs represent beauty in a way which is both perceivable and unknowable, just like the love we have for our dogs. Check out our AnimalWised list of 60+ star names for dogs and choose the best for your new puppy or adult dog.

You may want to choose a name of a place much closer to home than a star, as is the case with our list of city names for dogs. Some people think it's cute to give their dog a human name and some people want to choose from our list of funny names for dogs.
