As a pet owner, one of the hardest things to do is name your pet. Most of the time, they already have a name when you get them, but they don’t always fit their personalities. If you’re looking for an ideal pet name for your new companion and you also want to honor your Italian heritage, try one of these names.

The Italian word for angel, Angelo is a great name for any pet who has come along at the perfect time.

The Italian word for friend, Amico is the perfect way to describe your newest addition.
