Dog Name Inspiration

When you have decided to find a unique dog name for your pet, there are plenty of dog name ideas available to help you choose.

To select the best name for your dog, few things should be kept in mind.

The name should not be confusing for the dog. Remember you need to train your dog and give commands too. If the sound of the name and simple commands are similar, your dog may get confused. If you chose a name like ‘Viv’, your dog may confuse it with give. ‘Pitt’ sounds like sit. While choosing the name say it aloud a few times to ensure clarity.

Simple names are better for dogs compared to complicated names. Names like Bruno, Colly, Bliss, Boss are more appropriate than Rupert, Empress, Agatha, Braxton.

A name inspiration can come from anywhere. Your hobby or most loved video game, favorite food or drink, most admired movie, or book and even color can be a great source for a name. Think about what you relate to your furry friend. If it’s a game it could be champ, or something related to an individual game.

If you are interested in astronomy or love looking at the stars then Pollux, Vega, Spica could be some good names for any dog breeds.

Help Choosing The Right Name

Naming a dog is an experience and is not always as easy as it may seem.

Think about the size of your dog. Some names suit small dogs better than the big ones and vice versa. Names like Cupcake or Fifi do not seem right for big dog breeds like Great Danes. Names like Hulk, Rambo go well for big dogs. Choose a name that fits well with your dog’s appearance and personality. If you are naming a pup try to think what a grownup dog of that breed will look like.

Black, white, brown, yellow or spotted, what does your dog’s coat look like? If you are inspired to choose a name that goes with the fur, take your time to look around and think about what goes best.

Another good way to name your dog is to go with the season or the birth month. Sunny, Rainbow, Tulip, Robin, Frosty, you will find hundreds of dog name ideas to go with every season. You just need to discover the theme and plenty of ideas are available.

Conclusion

Have fun choosing a name for your dog and list all that you like. Involve other members of the family to decide on a name. Try out the name with your dog and see the response.
