Sky is a pawsome dog name, perfect for those pups with heads in the clouds or tails wagging with boundless energy. It's a nod to the limitless, blue expanse above us, making it a top pick for fans of aviation, astronomy, or The Simpsons' pooch, Santa's Little Helper. Etymologically, Sky stems from the Old Norse word for cloud, so it's a fitting moniker for fluffy breeds. Plus, it's a subtle tribute to Sky Masterson, the high-rolling gambler from Guys and Dolls. So, if you're betting on a name that's both celestial and cool, Sky's the limit!
