If you are adopting a dog who is born in 2021, you can choose a name for him that starts with the letter R. Last year, in 2020, it was the letter R, here are some S name ideas for your puppy or your dog.
The story of this letter
Since 1928, each year has been matched with a letter of the alphabet. This system makes it possible to orient the ideas of first names and can make it possible to find the year of birth of the dog.
Since the establishment of the lettering system by the Société Centrale Canine, if your dog is registered with the LOF, it is imperative that his name begins with the letter of his year of birth. And if your dog is not of a particular breed, you can choose to stick to that tradition if you wish.
We choose the letter over the alphabet, however we have abandoned the letters K, Q, W, X, Y, and Z because of a choice of names too limited and sometimes complicated. We therefore only use 20 letters of the alphabet out of 26 and the same letter is therefore now used every 20 years.
Choosing your dog’s first name is important because it is the most important communication link between him and you. He must be able to understand and recognize it easily, which is why we advise you to choose a short name that is easy to pronounce.
