If you name your dog Primo, that is. He can always be the best on the block.
Or perhaps you tell him all your troubles: call him Alfredo, Italian for "a counselor".
He brings you his lead all the time for walkies? Call him Cordell, French for "a professional rope maker".
There's no end to the super-cool elegant monikers you can stick on your mutley if you look at this list of Male French and Italian Dog Names. How about Vachel, French for "a small cow"? I'd like to see THAT dog!
