Kahlua, a name that's as smooth as the Mexican coffee-flavored liqueur it's named after, is a top-notch choice for your canine companion. It's a nod to the laid-back, chilled vibes of The Dude from "The Big Lebowski," who famously sipped White Russians (Kahlua's star cocktail). Plus, it's a sweet homage to your dog's potential Mexican heritage (Chihuahua, anyone?). So, if you're looking for a name that's rich, full-bodied, and has a kick of fun, Kahlua is the perfect blend. It's a name that will have your dog turning heads at the dog park, just like a fine cocktail at a party.
