Bichon Frise: What's In a Name?

What’s in a name? Apparently a lot more than you might think. We as human beings name things and the psychology behind that can be very revealing We tend to think of our Bichon Frises as family members and give our little companions people names. In the past, owners named their pets after distinguishing physical characteristics or personality traits (Spot, Rover). But not so much anymore. The trend is to give your canines human names. Fido is out and Max and Maggie are in.

Bichon Frise pet names can come from a variety of sources:

Famous People, (Lady Di, Elvis)
Famous Characters, (Snoopy)
Favorite Friends and Relatives names (especially if they remind you of a particular person or characteristic)
Nick names (Cookie)
Popular Movies, Simba, Nemo (especially if children are choosing the name)
And of course names that reflect the times, (Queenie is fast replacing Lady)
Personal associations
Terms of endearment, (Baby, Snookums, Buddy)

Other names can be inspired by:

Nationality or country of origin (Frenchy, Paris)
Physical Appearance, (Fluffy, Snowball)
Personality traits, (Sunny, Cuddles)
Mythological figures, (Zeus, Apollo, Venus)
Foreign Languages, (Fido, means “faithful” in Latin)
Food, (Candy, Cupcake, Snowball)
Famous couples, (Tom and Jerry, Sonny and Cher)
