Cajun dog names may be perfect for any breed of pup if you happen to like the sound of the word. Many of these names have deep meaning to those of this ethnic background. Many millions of other people love Cajun food and music, causing this culture to spread throughout the world. A once-French territory in southern North American, the area later became known as the state of Louisiana.

A small pooch can be fitted with such a call name after Cajun food and music which tends toward spicy and energetic, while a large breed can be just as suited to a cultural name because of the large number of people who love this culture. In some cases, you might choose based on the personality of the pup but you can just as easily select based on the fact that you and your dog like the tone of the name.
