This resplendent name means ‘moon goddess,’ which would give suitable grandeur to a Tibetan Terrier.


The Tibetan word for ‘The Moon’ would be a fitting title for a beloved Lhasa Apso.


It sounds cute, and it means ‘healthy and wealthy,’ so it works really well for a spunky Tibetan Spaniel.


For a white dog like the Xiasi, a name with the magic power of a thunderbolt would be ace.


A sweet name meaning ‘gentle,’ would reflect the cuddly character of a Shar Pei.


A Chinese Crested Dog deserves a special name like this. It means ‘shooting star.’


Norbu means ‘jewel,’ so a precious pooch such as a Shih Tzu could rock this name.


A Tibetan Mastiff has nothing to prove, meaning it would be a dignified holder of a name meaning ‘peaceful.’
