If you adopt a dog born in 2020, you will be able to choose a first name for it starting with the letter R. Last year, in 2019, it was the letter P, the letter Q not being used, here are some name ideas in R for your puppy.
The story of this letter R
Since 1928, each year corresponds to a letter of the alphabet. This system helps to find ideas of names and can help guess the age of the dog.
Since the establishment in 1928 of the lettering system by the Société Centrale Canine, if you own a purebred dog, it is imperative that its name begins with the letter of its year of birth for it to be registered in the LOF. And if this is not the case, it is generally done by “tradition”.
The choice of the letter is made throughout the alphabet, however you may have noticed: the year 2019 was the year of the P, this year in 2020 is the year of the R… We have therefore “skipped” the letter Q. Indeed the letters K, Q, W, X, Y, and Z were abandoned for the simple reason that the choice of names was too limited and sometimes complicated with these letters. We therefore only use 20 letters of the alphabet out of 26 and the same letter is now used every 20 years.
Choosing your dog’s first name is important because it is the first and essential communication link between him and you. It is essential that he can understand and recognize it easily, which is why we advise you to choose a short name that is easy to pronounce.
