Noah, a name that's both biblical and nautical, is a top-tier choice for your canine companion. It's like naming your dog after the ultimate animal lover, the guy who literally built an ark to save all creatures from a flood. Plus, it's a nod to heartthrob Noah Calhoun from The Notebook, so you can pretend Ryan Gosling is calling every time you shout for your pup in the park. With its roots meaning 'comfort' and 'rest', it's perfect for a dog who loves a good snuggle. So, if you want a name that's both saintly and swoon-worthy, Noah's your go-to!
