To make things easier, yes, it makes sense and it’s not strange that you want to give your dog a wine-related name. You should know that there are many names of dogs out there, inspired by wine. They are both very great loves. And just to get you in the mood, the dog of Angelos, founder of botilia and official botilia dog, is called Vino and here he is
We understand if you want to choose a name for your dog between John, Louis, Daisy (there is nothing wrong with these names) or the most common ones like Jack, Ralph, Luna, etc. But if your love for wine is endless or you are looking for something more original, maybe wine-inspired dog names are not such a bad idea.
Surely you have seen hundreds of photos of dogs with wines circulating on social media. We bet most of the cute dogs you see posing next to wine bottles and glasses have a wine-related name. Favorite varieties and wine regions are a global, important source of inspiration for wine lovers around the world.
So, let's start with some ideas that can help you choose a name for your dog.
Riesling: You know what they say. Dogs hear names that contain R, L and diphthongs better. If Riesling is your favorite variety, then even better. It suits both male and female dogs with strong character.
Merlot: It too contains R and L so it’s a perfect name for dogs. If your dog is calm and easy going, the name Merlot might suit like a glove.
Pinot: It does not have r, l and everything else that dogs hear, but it’s your favorite variety, either in grigio or in noir. Sophisticated, stylish dogs can easily support the name.
Grigio: Normally goes with the pinot. But it should really be, either Pino or Grigio. Definitely better suited for white dogs although a little black humor has never hurt anyone.
Barolo: Again with R and L. Do wine lovers prefer the same letters as well? Favorite region of Italy with top wines and loved by many. For some reason it suits black, strong dogs.
Cabernet: One of your favorite varieties and an amazing dog name. It is probably better suited for males with a strong character.
Sauvignon: Believe it or not, the name sauvignon is a big hit with dogs. It sounds sophisticated and prestigious, there is no way your mind can go elsewhere when you hear it, and it suits both white and dark colored dogs.
Blanc: Again, suitable for white dogs, but if you do not pronounce c, it may sound strange…
Cork: Maybe not the most auspicious name for your dog but it stands out.
Syrah: Perfect name for dark colored dogs, both male and female!
Cava: Okay, in Greece it may not be the best dog name… but you should know that worldwide, the Spanish sparkling wine, is selected a lot, mainly for female, small sized dogs.
Tannin: Lovely tannins. Why not name your dog Tannin? Playful, naughty and fun.
Malagouzia: It’s a long one, we know, but what can you do if it is your favorite variety? However, it also has L, which helps a lot.
Robola: It has R, L and diphthong. In other words, it’s a killer name in the field of acoustics by dogs. We know a Robola and it’s a very happy dog in Kefalonia, Greece.
We also know a Mavrodafni, strangely also from Kefalonia….
