Aboriginal Dog Names

The Aborigines were the original inhabitants of Australia and many of Australia's landmarks and names originated from the Aboriginal language. Naming your dog after an Aboriginal word will make your dog's name more unique and memorable for you and others. Since the vast majority of people do not speak the Aboriginal dialect, we have included translations of the names below.

Since there were over 200 Aboriginal languages, this dog name list consists of names and words taken from several different Aboriginal dialects.
