French for handsome prince of troy






Emily P. Contributor

Paris is a niche choice, but as a keen traveller I really identify with it.

I see this as a great dog name on many levels. It's a chic nod to the City of Love, perfect for a pooch with a certain je ne sais quoi, or a dog owner into fashion, travel, or French culture.

It's also a name that screams sophistication, like a canine Audrey Hepburn in "Sabrina" - Parisian edition.

Did you know Paris was originally a Greek hero in mythology? So, if your dog is a lover not a fighter, or has a penchant for stealing hearts (or sandwiches), Paris gives him or her a meaning that the average person won't even realize at first.

It's a little bit of haute couture for your hound. And who said dogs can't be fashion-forward? It's the 21st century, after all.
