Getting a dog is one of the most exciting things that a person can look forward to. After all, you are getting not only a companion but also a friend. However, acquiring a new dog does come with the responsibility of choosing a name. As a rule, dog experts recommend that owners choose a name that is short and easy to pronounce. The ideal length of a dog name is one to two syllables, since dogs are only able to recall the first two syllables of any given word. If you have set your heart on a unique and cool name that is a bit longer than recommended, you can still give this name to your dog. However, make sure that you have a shortened version that you can use when calling or commanding your pooch.
The modern equivalent of philautia would be something like self-esteem (good) or hubris (bad). People with high self-esteem, pride in themselves, or a positive body image practice a healthy version of philautia. Of course, philautia has a dark side, too. Egomaniacal narcissists who think they are better than everybody else are also an example of philautia, but not in a healthy way. The duality of philautia just goes to show that love, even self-love, can often get pretty complicated.
