Cherry Fruit






Emily P. Contributor

Say hello the Cherry, a name that's ripe with charm and sweetness.

It makes me think of Cherry Valance from The Outsiders, and the classic song Cherry Bomb by The Runaways. It's a name that's both playful and bold, just like your furry friend.

Another great piece of significance is that cherries symbolize good fortune in some cultures. In that way, naming your dog Cherry could bring a little extra luck into your life.

And let's not forget how great a conversation starter Cherry would be at the dog park. "Why did you name your dog Cherry?" "Well, she's sweet, she's bright, and she's the cherry on top of my life!"

So, if you have a furry redhead or just a pup that's extra sweet, I highly recommend the name Cherry.
