CHIHUAHUA NAMES

Chihuahua is more than just a breed of dog; it is a state in Mexico after which the dog breed is named. Therefore, it’s been common in the past to choose ethnic Chihuahua names to match the background. On the other hand, because of their miniature stature, other names have been chosen based on size. If you look at long haired Chihuahuas, you’ll find that they tend to resemble a little lion, much like Pomeranians. However, short haired breeds are small and wiry, leading to a completely different picture of what a Chihuahua’s personality should be.

The breeding of the Chihuahua dates back to the Techichi, and ancient dog belonging to the Aztecs in the Chihuahua area of Mexico. If you know anything about Spanish (the language of Mexico) or Aztec dialects, you may want to look at Chihuahua names related to these dialects. Likewise, since you’ve chosen a small dog, Chihuahua names can range from those that recognize the small size to names that are in direct contrast to the size of the dog.
