Easter Dog Names - Page 3

Updated: October 06, 2023

Like a classic family egg hunt or a Cadbury Crème egg, this list of names is full of Easter goodness. From favorite candies to Springtime, we have gathered up a selection of ideas fitting for the dog born in or around the months of March and April. Common holiday associations provide a strong base for our collection.

Parade is an option taken from the festive strolls that are popular holiday occurrences across much of North American. Perhaps the most popular is the Fifth Avenue parade in New York City which has been going on since the mid 1800’s.

None of the parades would be complete without the celebrated donning of new clothes. Bonnet is a suggestion taken from the most notable of Easter attire.

For children, the majority of the focus turns to the beloved egg-hiding bunny. Peter is a name borrowed from the most festive and well-known of Easter rabbits. Peter Rabbit was first introduced in the novel ‘The Easter bunny that Overslept’ by Priscilla and Otto Friedrich. In 1971 a television adaptation entitled ‘Here Comes Peter Cottontail’ helped to increase his exposure.

As Easter Sunday approaches stores begin stocking their shelves with the treats we have come to know and love. Cadbury, Peep, and Reese are ideas borrowed from some of our favorites. Any fans of the classic Peeps must try the newer Milk Chocolate Covered variety.

With the holiday comes Springtime. Temperatures rise, rain falls, and the flowers start to bloom. Names of flowers like Daisy or Lily are particularly trendy during this timeframe. Rain, Puddles, and Stormy are a good fit for those with a more shower filled Easter.

Other general name ideas include Sunday, Basket (where else will you put your eggs?), and Pastel.

Sunny's Easter Adventure

In the sleepy town of Cloverdale, a yellow Labrador named Sunny was eagerly awaiting the arrival of Easter, her favorite holiday. She had spent weeks helping the local church prepare for the Easter celebration, and was excited to see the joy and happiness on the faces of the town's children as they hunted for Easter eggs and enjoyed the festivities.

However, unbeknownst to Sunny and the townspeople, an evil wolf had been lurking in the woods, intent on sabotaging the Easter celebration and causing chaos and destruction.

As the day of the Easter celebration approached, Sunny became increasingly aware of the wolf's presence, sensing a dark and malevolent energy emanating from the nearby forest. Fearing for the safety of her beloved town and its inhabitants, she knew that she had to act fast to thwart the wolf's nefarious plans.

With her keen senses and boundless energy, Sunny set out on a mission to track down the wolf and put a stop to its evil deeds. She traversed the rugged terrain of the forest, her nose to the ground and her ears alert for any sign of danger.

As she reached the heart of the woods, she caught a glimpse of the wolf lurking in the shadows, its eyes gleaming with a malicious intent. Without hesitation, Sunny charged forward, her powerful body hurtling through the air as she launched herself at the wolf.

A fierce battle ensued, with Sunny using all her strength and agility to outmaneuver the wolf and protect the town from harm. Her sharp teeth and powerful jaws proved to be too much for the wolf to handle, and with a final, victorious growl, she emerged as the triumphant hero of the day.

With the wolf defeated and the Easter celebration saved, Sunny returned to Cloverdale to the adoration and praise of the town's grateful citizens. And as she watched the children of the town joyfully collecting Easter eggs and enjoying the festivities, she knew that her bravery and determination had made a difference, ensuring that the magic of Easter would continue to shine bright in the hearts of the town's people for years to come.
