When you are thinking of a name for your boy dog, here are some things to consider:

- One should keep boy dog names short, preferably one or two syllables.

- The name you give your boy dog should not sound like any other name within your family or among your friends, or total confusion will result.

- The name you give your boy dog should not sound like a command, or even more confusion will arise!

- A cute, exotic, or cool boy dog name may be great for a little puppy, but will the name be suitable for a full grown male dog?

- Do you want a descriptive name for your dog, will you watch your dog for a while to figure out his personality before giving him a name that reflects his personality?

- Does your boy dog have distinctive markings on his coat, or is his size unusual, does he have any distinct attributes that you want to name him after?

- Does your dog remind you of anyone famous? Does he look like a celebrity that you want to name him after?

- Will your boy puppy become a working dog of some sort when he is grown? Why not give him a working or hunting name if that is what he will be doing?

- You can always keep it simple and name your boy dog after his sex with names like "Boy" and "Fella".

- What is the place of origin of your boy dog's breed? You can always give him a name in a foreign language which reflects his breed.

All in all, once you name your boy dog, soon the name will fit him like a glove. You will hardly remember the time when you were browsing through dog names looking for a name for him.
