Our guide to the best yoga dog names

While the downward-facing dog continues to be one of the most recognized yoga poses, it might seem like the connection between dogs and yoga is tenuous at best. But giving your pup a yoga-inspired name can help to reflect the qualities you admire in your dog. Strength, flexibility, balance, and inner peace, are all positive attributes exuded by dogs, to the point that they can actually contribute to our energy as owners.

The practice of ‘doga’, which involves practising yoga with dogs, has also risen to prominence in recent years, being seen as a way to deepen the bond between humans and their furry companions. So the connection is getting stronger, and if you’re a yoga enthusiast yourself, there are myriad reasons as to why you’d want to bestow your new puppy with one of the yoga-inspired dog names in this list.

For male dogs, our first recommendation would be Mantra. This literally means a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation, and we also use the word ‘mantra’ to refer to our guiding principles. With dogs being as consistent and resilient as they are, this name really reflects the traits that will make you fall in love with your dog.

If you’d like something more unusual, Satnam is a Sanskrit and Punjabi word meaning “truth as the highest identity”, and refers to a meditation used most frequently in Kundalini yoga. Another cute name for boys and girls (but boys preferred) would be Shanti, which simply means “peace”.

For female dogs, our favorite name from this list is definitely Prana. The term “prana” is a very common one in the yoga universe, and translates to both “primary energy” and “breath” – which of course is one of yoga’s most fundamental aspects. Another name along these lines would be Nadi, a Sanskrit word that can be translated as “tube,” “channel” or “flow.”

And if you’d like a girls’ name that’s a little more subtle, what about Kali? Commonly understood as “the age of Kali,” Kali Yuga is a Sanskrit term in the Hindu tradition used to describe our current epoch. What we love about the name is that it’s also an alternative spelling of Callie, which is a more conventional but still extremely cute dog name.
