Native American Dog Names

Native American Dog Names

"An excellent collection of Native American names."

Our list of names isn't the biggest on the web, we're fine with that.

You see, we apply two criteria when selecting foreign (i.e. non-English) names for our site - the name must be pronounceable, and its meaning must be appropriate.

You'll find names like:

AYASHA: Cheyenne - "Little one"

HINTO: Dakota - "Blue"

KANTI: Algonquin - "Sings"

SITSI: Navajo - "Daughter"

So choose with confidence from the list of names below. We think it contains some pretty good names for dogs.
