Benjamin- Although there’s no solid evidence on how this one originated (after all, it could have come up any time within the last 3000 years), it’s worth noting that this is a Hebrew name meaning either “son of the south” or “son of my old age.” Considered one of the Bible’s names, Benjamin was also given by Rachel to her son to honor her dead husband, Jacob.

Indiana – This name suits your adventurous pup who loves to go exploring.
