210+ Manly Dog Names For Strong Dogs


Since ancient times, dogs have been faithful helpers of people in various endeavors. The tetrapods worked with hunters and farmers, herders, and guards. The dog was also an assistant in war – a scout, sentry, pathfinder. It is known that the first “war dogs” appeared among the Ephesians already in the 7th century BC. “Labor activity” determined and defines the character of the dog. Therefore, service, hunting animals are given appropriate nicknames – formidable, manly, sonorous. Both Russian-language and foreign variants, historical, mythological, and original names are good here.
