Ballet Dog Names

Recommended Posts

nehta13

This may be the silliest topic ever... :shrug: Forgive me if it is!

 

I am planning to get a little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and I would really like to give them a name that reflects my love of ballet. However, I am having a very hard time finding a good-sounding name... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank You!

Julie

How about a favorite character: Prince, Giselle, Carabosse, etc.

 

Or a favorite step: Ballotte, Battu, Cabriole, Sissone

 

Or a favorite tempo: allegro, adagio

 

Or after a favorite dancer: Pamela, Suzanne, Ethan etc.

 

I personally really like Battu, Cabriole, Giselle and Allegro for dogs names. And Prince is pretty common

I always have such a hard time naming my animals too...

 

You didn't mention if it is a boy or a girl.

That said...

Let's see if I can get my silly creative juices flowing................ :(

 

Boy names:

Cavalier (goes with ballet and his breed) you could call him "Cav" for short.

Jete

Siegfried or "Ziggy" for short

 

Girl names:

'Rina (comes from ballerina)

 

Or you could be really creative and give him one of those long registered names like:

"Julie's Adagio Grande Battement Tendu" or something cool like that (is that even a real ballet sentence?? I have no idea! :shrug::shrug: ) and call him or her "Addy"-short for adagio.

 

That's all I can think of for now. I can always add more later..... :(

I like Jete, that is cute. If it is a bitch, you could call her Sousous or Chaines or Chasse.

 

For a dog, Battu...perhaps.

 

I'd steer away from calling the dog "Fondu" or "Saute" for obvious reasons. ;)

Did you know dog was a delicacy in some parts of the world? Probably tastes like chicken when broiled in a little butter. ;)

My "daughter's" guinea pig was initially named "Adage". Once she saw how quickly she moved, name was changed to "Allegra" (as in Kent). Fast and beautiful.

To be honest I think it would taste more like beef or lamb.

 

Yea I'm Chinese, we've eaten pretty much everything :shrug:

 

Back to the subject, I like Cabriole or Battu. :(

 

Cheers,

Fish

Did you know that Serge Diaghilev's nickname was "Chinchilla"?

Cavaliers (the King Charles Spaniel kind) are very affectionate, loyal and aiming to please. Great dogs! My suggestion would be to name it the ballet step, character, personage that gives you the most pleasure. Mine is Nikolai!

I know of a cat named "Tutu".

 

You could also go with something like "Freed".

Our AD has a dog named Rudi after Nureyev and two dancers have dogs named Misha. They are all male dogs however.

Ah, I did. But the connection was not very obvious to me :blushing:

I pronounced Saute differently than the cooking term, and didn't even think about fondu as a food.

 

Ooh... I like the idea of Freed, but have to say my preference would go to Gamba :)

 

Nope, still Giselle or Battu are my favorites
