Dogs Named After Presidents

I LOVE fun and historical facts about pets! It’s definitely one of my favorite things. So today, I thought I would share with you some awesome Presidential related facts that Petplan pet insurance shared with me, in honor of President’s Day.

1. The Commander-in-Chief with the most pets named after him? Theodore Roosevelt!

Petplan’s inquiry into presidential pet names showed the following leaders inspired the most monikers:

2. Honorable mention for originality goes to Catvin Coolidge!

3. First Lady names are also common — from Mary Todd Lincoln to Eleanor Roosevelt, pet parents love paying tribute to the women of the White House as well.

Rooney’s namesake is a soccer player, but we did discuss Presidential names when we were naming him.

Do you know any dogs who are named after a President or First Lady?

Disclaimer: I DO NOT want to start a political conversation on this blog. This post is meant to be cute and about pets. Enjoy!

    I guess I’m not named after a president. Is Trump named after a Donald Duck?

    Our Shetland Sheepdog/Miniature cross is named Woodrow Wilson Dunder (aka “Woody”). If we add a third dog to the family, he will be Theodore Roosevelt Dunder (aka “Teddy”).
