What’s in a name?

Before deciding on a name for your four-legged friend, think about it. Many names sound cute and are hard to choose between. It’s not always about sounding cute and clever, though.

When picking a name, make sure that you can easily spell it and pronounce it. You want it to roll off the tongue. Also, there are certain sounds and syllables that your dog will be more likely to listen to. On the other hand, they may not listen well to certain sounds similar to common commands. Also, you can choose a name that has some meaning to you as well. 

With all that in mind, let’s take a look at these Irish names.
