Cute Names

Many dog lovers are giving their puppies regular people names because, well, they are little fur-babies and are just as much a part of the family as anyone else. Just make sure that a puppy’s name is not close to the name of a human family member, or the pup will show up whenever one calls the human’s name.

Dog Names

Dog experts have some tips for dog names. One or two syllable names are easiest for a puppy to learn. Many trainers say that the easiest name for a dog to understand has two syllables and ends in a vowel, like Kona or Lassie, and these words are also the easiest to say.

Some dog lovers don’t like to give their puppies a name from the top ten dog names because 50 dogs may show up for dinner when someone calls for Max. On the other hand, the most popular names are popular for a reason. Usually, the top names are easy (and not embarrassing) to yell out loud at a dog park.

Cool Names

Try picking a few names from this list or other lists, then play with the new pup baby and see which name the dog seems to respond to. If the puppy doesn’t seem to care about any of them, then the owner should just pick one that he or she likes.

The puppy will learn to love the new name if the owner doesn’t use the name when scolding or disciplining. It’s best to use the pup’s name when playing or training, and other occasions where there are positive rewards like cuddles or food.
