Siberian Huskies' names are often associated with Alaska, and a name like Alpine is a perfect description of the dog's snow-white fur. Dogs and Dog Advice suggests names such as Aurora and Tundra, which characteristically describe the dog's natural habitat.

Huskies are strong, intelligent and loving, so names such as Nikita which means little child, Nova, a bright star, or Ulf, which means a male with very soft, fluffy fur are good choices. Names that commemorate notable Huskies in history, such as Togo, are distinctive. In 1925, Togo and his team participated in a race over 90-miles of treacherous terrain from Anchorage to Nome to deliver live-saving diphtheria serum. The event is commemorated by the annual Iditarod dog race.
