Surprisingly enough, there's more than a few good mythology dog names to choose from. Naming ideas that have been passed down thru the sands of time and will be immortalized further once given to your dog.

A Chihuahua named Ramses

Here's a Few Examples

Achilles, Apollo or Atlas: We can see this choice as a perfect fit for a large breed like a Rottweiler, German Shepherd or Great Dane.

Athena or Aurora: A beautiful pick for your beautiful girl

Cupid: For a small male dog that captured your heart when you first met.

Echo: For the pup that follows you everywhere.

Nemesis: Another strong sounding choice that would be a good fit on a strong breed like a Pit Bull or Rottweiler.

And how about a cute name twist by giving a small dog an intimidating name? What Chihuahua, Pom or Yorkie wouldn't love a name like Zeus, or Jupiter?
