Names for Greyhounds

 
Known as the oldest refined breed of dog, the Greyhound has been around in its various forms since humans began to hunt.  The English Greyhound is a gazehound or sighthound with smooth coat and certainly the fastest breed, along with its derivatives, like the wolfhound and deerhound.  What we call the Greyhound today is a breed refined in England and popular with the aristocracy in centuries past. 
Tragically, these became disposable dogs for racetracks, but rescue organizations have worked to find homes for retired racing Greyhounds. The sport may become obsolete in the near future.

Both in Arabia and in England and other parts of Europe, hunters who used sighthounds also often had birds of prey. Some of the suggested names are the common names of these majestic raptors: "Falco" means "falcon" in Spanish. "Peregrine" is a well-known species of Falcon, as is the Saker, a less well known Falcon.
