The Trouble With Naming Your pet a Human Name


                     Many dog owners know for a fact that it is inevitable for the owner to get a little slack with naming their dog after a human name like Susan or ellen. It is leftover of why unique humans name their dogs in pride but can cause public attention or confusion. My dogs’ name is such. He’s named Sam and when I  actually go out into public and focus on a walk near a public site, I am aware that there might be women and men named Sam. So, you have to be careful. Discussing this with my parents, they would blame me for naming my dog after a human being. It can be very dramatic and can lead to strange people criticizing you. Many have said to me, well you should have gone for a different unique name like buster or royal. Thinking about it now, I would have to be silly to listen to that advice. That is why I compiled a list of human names given to dogs and show why they are suitable by its meaning. Here is the top ten:
