Unique Mastiff Names
Your Male Or Female Will Love These

When it comes to Mastiff names, no owner wants to be heard calling out a name that would fit better on a Pomeranian or Chihuahua.

But there’s more to this pooch than just good looks and large size, they have interesting things to learn about them as well.

Did You Know…

The ancestors of today's Mastiff was the Molossus, a now extinct war dog that was common in the world of Greco-Romans? The umbrella term describing this breed refers to them as Molossers in case you hear it used you’ll now know where it came from.

The Puritans brought with them from Europe on the Mayflower a Mastiff. Yes, even the Pilgrims were dog lovers and couldn’t stand to be apart even for a little boat ride.

They are considered to be the most massive of all pups. Although Irish Wolfhounds and Great Danes are taller in size, this pooch makes them look skinny when it comes to shear mass. An adult can weigh as much as a human adult weighing in between 130-200 pounds…rather large we’d say.

A Mastiff by the name of Zorba set the record in 1987 as the heaviest and largest pooch of all time. With a measurement of 99 inches from nose to tail and weighing in at 344 pounds we can’t imagine it’s owner saying no to it at dinnertime and living to tell about it.

Because of the popularity of the Mastiff along with their lengthy history, they were quite popular in royal courts thruout Europe. It’s because of this that they can be found represented in many fine art paintings by the masters.

So there you have it…a breed that looms large not only historically, but also in size. Here below you’ll find not only male and female Mastiff names dedicated to them, but some ideas that sound BIG as well.
