Celtic Dog Names
Great If You're From Ireland
Or Own An Irish Setter or Wolfhound


Celtic dog names are a great choice for a new pet that hails from Ireland, like an Irish Setter or the Irish Wolfhound. A Celtic moniker could also be a consideration for a pooch whose owner is Irish, lives there, or has fond memories of time spent in this beautiful country. Of course, some pet owners may simply like the exotic sound of a Celtic dog name for their unique pup.

If you are considering the name for a specific Irish breed, keep in mind their breed characteristics and common personality traits when determining exactly what to title them. The Irish Wolfhound is by far the most distinctive of the breeds from this country with a history that dates back to 300 AD when they were mentioned by the Roman council. The Wolfhound has been known by several other breed names but is most easily recognized for its height and slender physique. Considered a gentle giant, it is one of the tallest breeds in the world. Wolfhounds have a hardy, muscular body along with a rough, shaggy coat that comes in a variety of colors. They have a commanding presence and a very gentle spirit.

Irish Setters are typically known as sporting pups and are most easily recognized by their distinctive red coats. These elegant canines have a silky, long coat with a long muzzle and triangular shaped ears that are proportionate to their muscular body. These animals are best known for being energetic, intelligent, and loyal.
