Bonus: A Famous Greek Dog
If you’re searching for something a little more fearsome, look no further than Cerberus. This mythological dog was believed to guard the gates of Hades, the Underworld. He had between three and fifty heads and a dragon tail. Pretty impressive, right?
Cerberus’s job was to keep people from leaving the Underworld. But like many guard dogs, Cerberus wasn’t perfect at his job and sometimes got distracted. His biggest brush with fame? Hercules, a hero you may remember from Disney, kidnapped him as one of his 12 labors.
Finding the Right Greek Name for Your Dog
Maybe your dog likes to go on odysseys, strike down mere mortals, and guard the gates of hell. Or maybe your pup would just look good on a Greek beach. Regardless of what brought you here, we hope you’ve found the perfect Greek dog name.
And while you’re deciding, a quick word of advice. Pick a name that your dog can wear well and with pride. If your pup is more goofy than regal, you might want something a little less serious than Hades or Zeus. But if your dog is fierce, naming them after Ares (the god of war) might be just right.
