Japanese Pet Names For Your Special Pet

Aug 16, 2008
Choosing a Japanese name for your pet is choosing a name that is based richly in culture, diversity and heritage. Pets that bear a Japanese name are symbolic of that name and therefore you should choose the name carefully for your pet.

Most Japanese pet names are based off of certain things that are rich in their culture such as special meanings, special words, and exotic parts of the land, exotic flowers and famous people in Japanese history. Whichever name you prefer, you can always do research on it to find out the true meaning and origin.

If you are looking for ideas to base your Japanese pet names from, here are some common pet names for cats, dogs or any other pet that are derived from Japanese words:

These are just a few of the most popular Japanese pet names, and there are also variations of many of the names which can be personalized from you to your pet. Whichever you decide from these beautiful names, you will surely be giving your special pet a name as unique as they are. Japanese culture strongly believes in the meaning and virtue of names, and by choosing to adorn your pet with a name you are showing that this is not just any ordinary pet, but one that bears a special meaning to you and in your life as well.

You can always incorporate other aspects into the name of your pet as well, for instance if you want to create a name based on Japanese pet names and then also add in another component for something personal in your life, the possibilities are endless. If you want to name your pets after certain themes, you could choose one name that is Japanese inspired, and one perhaps to the locality of where you live or where your pet originated from. The choices are up to you, and you may want to select a name that is both meaningful to you and is descriptive of the personality of your new pet as well.
