Husky Dog Names
Ever hear of Balto? You may know of the 1995 animated movie with the actor Kevin Bacon starring as the voice of Balto.
But you may not know Balto was a famous Siberian Husky sled dog that led a team carrying diphtheria serum from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska, in 1925 to combat an outbreak of the disease. The famous run is commemorated by the annual Iditarod dog race.
Togo was another famous Siberian Husky involved in the well-known run to bring diphtheria serum to Nome. He led a team that travelled more than 90 miles of the treacherous route before Balto and his team finished the "race" to save lives.
The Husky dog names list is full of dog names that really evoke emotions tied to the Siberian Husky dog breed. Some are Native American dog names, some are tied to Eskimo heritage, some are tied to northern climates and some I just like. It really was an interesting an ejoyable list to create.
NOTE: If you like the beautiful Siberian Husky photo, you can thank echiax who made it available.
Something to keep in mind when naming your Siberian Husky puppy is to match your dog's personality and purpose with their name. Maybe you want to choose from a list of famous dog names or one syllable dog names. Or maybe you want to name your pup for a very personal reason, such as to remember someone special.
