The only thing harder than naming your firstborn child is picking out the perfect name for your fur baby — because nothing could be worse than spending hours and hours coming up with that totally choice dog name only to discover that the amazingness you thought was one of a kind actually already belongs to, like, 1,000 other dogs in the town you live in.
That's why we've compiled a list of dog names that are a bit more distinct — because who wouldn't love a pup named for a historical figure or after your favorite alcoholic beverage?
If your pooch is too cute for her (or his) leash, go with one of these names inspired by our favorite fashion gurus.
Is your "ruff" and tumble pooch always ready to hit the road? Try one of these names inspired by jet lag.
These dog names are inspired by some of our favorite adult beverages. Remember: Always name your pet responsibly.
