Naming Dogs

Choices, decisions and compromise

In Blake Shelton’s “I’ll Name the Dogs” he sings about his desire to make a life with the woman he loves, saying, “You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs.” Dogs receive equal billing with kids in the lyrics of this hit song, and they beat out the children for the song’s title. This makes sense to anyone who truly understands the prominent role of dogs in our lives. It’s a love song, but Shelton proposes something practical—a division of labor for the naming duties. Though most people prefer to work together when naming dogs or babies, splitting the decisions could prevent a lot of conflict.
