Top 10 Dog Names

Updated on May 21, 2014

Giving a name to your new pet dog is the first thing that you should do when you get a new dog. A dog name not only helps to identify the dog but also makes it easier for you to communicate to the dog and also makes training easy for both you and your dog. Choosing an ideal dog name for you dog is not an easy task as most people tend to see it.

The dog name you choose for your dog should stick for the rest of the dog’s life. It is therefore important for you to be keen when choosing the dog’s name to give your dog. Changing your dog’s name now and then may cause so much confusion for the dog. There are thousands of dogs name suggested by different dog lovers; however not all the dog names suit your dog.

Tips to Help you Choose an Ideal Dog Name

To make it easier for you to choose the right name for your dog, there are several factors that you can follow to choose a name that will suit your dog. The first factor is the breed of your dog. You can give your dog a name based on its breed. The temperament of the dog is another factor that can help you come up with a great name that will suit your dog.

If your dog is playful, you can give it a name that suggests its playful nature. The color of the dog’s coat can also be used to give a name to a dog. A dog with a brown coat can be called Brownie or any other name that suggest the color of the dog’s coat. You can also give your dog based on how you feel about it. The name can be a show of confidence and affection to your dog. You can come up with a name that tells how intelligent your dog is or how cute the dog is.

Celebrity Names

Some people also name their dogs after popular and famous people like musicians, millionaires and other such successful people. I personally would not support you giving your dog a name after a famous person; however, if you like it you can name your dog after your favorite singer.

I tend to think that calling your dog a name of a famous person is so common. Everyone is doing it plus I find it disrespectful to your canine friend. Your dog deserves better, give him a unique name that appreciates his personality.

Choose a Unique Name

To make the name of your dog even more unique, you can choose to give it a name on something that you do most of the time or something that you find valuable or important to you. For the technology lovers, you can call your dog a name such as Mac, Byte, Cupertino, Java or even iPad if you like. When choosing this kind of names for your dog, be sure to choose a name that will not become absolute quickly. Choose a name that you will be comfortable to call your dog before people and a name that will last for a long time. Here are some great dog names that you can give to your dog.
