When you adopt a dog, no matter her age, you'll know right away if you're taking home a pup deserving of one of these old lady dog names. 

Maybe you can tell she's an old soul. Maybe she just has wise, thoughtful eyes. Maybe you're adopting an older dog—great idea!—whose new situation befits a new name. 

Old-fashioned names have been having their moment for new parents naming their human babies, too. It may have started when Julia Roberts named her daughter Hazel—taking the name of a TV show housekeeper and making it suddenly Hollywood cool. Preschools suddenly filled up with Olivias and Isabells and the occasional Magnolia.

Or maybe the popularity of classic names is just a case of "what goes around comes around" and it's time for these names from a previous generation to get a fresh spotlight.

No matter why you're considering one of these gems for your dog, we have a few good ideas:
