10 Love-Inspired Names for the Dog You're Getting for Valentine's Day

Love-Inspired Names for the Dog You're Getting for Valentine's DayI am not at all what you would consider a romantic person. I don’t care for cheesy things, don’t live up to the hype of telling someone you love them every single time you see them and I just don’t care for the lovey-dovey.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many people are thinking about what to get for their loved one. If I cared for the day, I would have asked for something simple as chocolate or if you asked me a few months ago I would have asked for a cat. We welcomed a cat into our life about 2 weeks ago, so this Valentine’s Day I am just hoping for a face-sized basket of chocolate.

If you’re a dog person and you’ve been wanting a dog as part of your family forever, this may be the time to ask for one. If you’re lucky enough to get a dog this Valentine’s Day — perhaps you want to give them a name inspired by the love-holiday.

Check out these love-inspired names for the dog your loved one is sure to get you for Valentine’s Day:

  • Demetrius 1 of 10
    It's a complicated name for a child, but totally fitting for a dog. Demetrius was a character in A Midsummer's Night Dream Demetrius was a center for a love story.

  • Beatrice 4 of 10
    Used to be a popular person name, but it's falling in the ranks. When it comes do dogs though, it would make a great female dog name. It means "bringer of joy" making it perfect for your Valentine's Day dog.
