Famous people, celebrities, athletes, artists, singers, and musicians positively impact our lives with their talent. We admire them and sometimes the admiration is reflected when naming our pets.
These notable people and music inspired whippet names are tremendously fun and creative. It’s an interesting variety, from science to soul.
And, of course, it is one of the best dog name lists because it has pictures! You can see the whippet that actually has the name.
What could be better than looking at adorable whippets with remarkable names? Well, it would be awesome if you could reach in and pet them too. Unfortunately, that particular technology doesn’t exist.
So what are you waiting for? Scroll on down and get ready to smile.
A very special thanks to all the kind whippet owners who allowed me to use their photos for this article.
