What To Name Your Dog, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

By

You're one of the luckiest people in the world if you're about to finally welcome a furever friend into your life who is entirely yours. Your fur baby is going to love you in ways you didn't even think were possible from a pet. But wait, what name could possibly encompass all of the sweet feels you get from your new fluffy friend? Name picking is really tough, and knowing what to name your dog, based on your zodiac sign, could help you out a bit with the mind-tugging process.

Seriously, naming your pup is a close second or tied first place with naming your actual child. You're going to overthink it, and you will inevitably want to nail down the perfect one. First off, scratch that idea of perfection from your mind. Your dog will make their name; the name doesn't make your dog. Besides, your pup is going to be so excited that he has a new home, he will cherish whatever adorable name you decide to give him. Take some advice from the stars, though, because that same gut feeling that lead you to your dog, is the same one that will guide you to the right name for them. Here are some suggestions.

Sagittarius: Something Witty

Your dog may not be able to laugh, Sag, but they'll still dig your epic sense of humor. That's why their name has to reflect how much you enjoy the funnier things in life. Thanks to this tweet, Bark Obama or Katy Pawry would be such clever names.
