Completing the adoption process for your new cat or dog is a joyous occasion. Now that it’s over, you can bring your pet home and start making happy memories with them.
So, have you decided on a name for your new puppy or kitten? You may have forgotten about that while going through the adoption process. That’s fine because you can still come up with one now.
Don’t just select any old name that comes to mind however. You need to put some thought into that selection and you’ll understand why after going through the rest of this article.
Why It Matters
Choosing a good name for your pet is important because it’s something you can use to create a connection with them faster. Your pet may not understand the significance of the name you gave them, but they can use it as a kind of reference.
The sound of their name is something they can link to you. Thanks to that, they will have an easier time understanding if you are calling out to them.
A nameless pet will have a harder time connecting with their master. Avoid placing that burden on your beloved furball by giving them a name.
Identifying the Right Name for Your Pet
We’ve established the importance of naming your pet so that leaves us with the challenge of actually choosing one. The sheer number of possible options may overwhelm you, but there are certain qualities that define a good pet name.
According to PetMD, a two-syllable name is the easiest to understand for most pets. You should also avoid those names that sound like commands because they can cause confusion.
As long as you keep those things in mind while choosing one, you should be able to come up with a good one for your new animal companion.
Don’t just pick a name out of a hat for your new pet. Give it some real thought and consideration because your pet deserves that.
