Where did the nicknames for dogs come from?

It is rare who wondered who was the first to decide to name his four-legged friend by a public name. For example, how Polkan became a nickname for dogs of boys. Or where did the Tuzik come from?

So, in the 19th century in the Russian dictionaries it was possible to meet the Russian word “Polkan”. So they began to call a dog who was afraid of … sticks. Meanwhile, the word happened even earlier, it is ancient and came to Russia BC, when there was a migration of peoples to Europe from Asia. Then representatives of different tribes communicated among themselves at rest, joined the traditions of each other, including borrowing nicknames.

There is an assumption that the ancients had the god Perun, who in Greece was called Zeus. So the Proto-Slavs decided to borrow the myth of the centaur and called it “half-horse”, and the dog in this case – the half-horse. So the famous nickname appeared.

True, not always a dog can be called a simple name. Especially when it comes to hunting breed. So, for example, the Russian canine, Hortaya, Spanish dog is so majestic that the Tuzik will even sound vulgar. The nickname of shepherd dogs should emphasize her playfulness, beauty, strength and mind. For girls’ dogs, such nicknames are suitable: Whirlwind, Bullet, String, Courage. Nicknames for males are selected other: Flight, Gift, Scatter, Ferocious, Nayan

Keep in mind that often your name and its future depend on how you name the dog, because you attach a certain meaning, energy to the name, and this is very important. Those. if you decide to name the dog Ferocious, do not be surprised when she begins to show her character not in the best shape.
