Our guide to the best spiritual dog names

Spiritualism is on the rise. More and more young people are looking within themselves to become more self-aware, or “awoken”. And because the principles and symbols of spiritualism are so closely tied to nature, it’s easy to see how spiritual references would make great dog names.

Giving your dog a spiritual name creates a level of significance that goes beyond its appearance or its connection to you as its owner. Spiritual dog names set your pup up for life, as opposed to a cutesy name that both you and your dog could eventually outgrow.

For male dogs, we love the simplicity and tribal feel of Chant. If you like that, you might also like Mantra, which is two-syllable and clearer in sound, but also refers to tribal singing.

Another option we really like for male dogs is Cosmo, which is a popular choice for good reason. The name refers to the universe as a whole, focusing on order, harmony and beauty.

For female dogs, our favorite is Yana. This is a beautiful two-syllable option that fits all of the criteria for a good dog name. It refers to a Buddhist spiritual practice, or a “way of enlightenment”.

Other great choices for girls are Shaina, which is Hebrew for beautiful, or the similar-sounding and slightly more common Shiva.
