Does your dog’s breed or mix of breeds hail from Wales? If so, you might want to select a Welsh name! These dog breeds originated in Wales:

  • Cardigan Welsh Corgi: Even the word “Corgi” is derived from the Welsh phrase “cor gi“, meaning “dwarf dog.” The Cardigans originated in the town and county of Cardigan on the River Teifi.
