Unleash Your Dog From Average Names

When creating this puppy names site we had a mission.

How can a site like this better assist the caring owner such as yourself to choose the puppy name that best fits your pal? With so many different ones to choose from, won’t any name do? Well, considering that it’s been estimated that over the course of your dogs lifetime, it’s name will be called, yelled and cooed over 13,000 times, it’s important that the best possible name be chosen the first time.

That’s why when looking for creative names for puppies, we suggest you consider…

  • Your dogs personality. Is it’s energetic?…or laid back? Some breeds are naturally one way or the other, it’s like comparing the polar opposite Chihuahua with the Mastiff. One breeds all over the place while the other takes it’s sweet time getting there.

  • Your pups coloration. If you own a black or brown dog how about a name that compliments it’s color? Maybe a name like Twilight, Kahlua, Coco, or Espresso for a dark colored pup that’s full of energy. It’s been said that blonds have more fun, if your dogs this color why not give it a name after blonds that definitely had more fun, like Marilyn (Monroe) or Paris (Hilton)?

  • Consider your pals size. A biggish sounding name for a big dog, smallish name for a small one. Like Denali, Yukon, or Sumo for a large dog. Smallish names for smaller breeds can be Peanut, Cookie, or Bon Bon for a sweet, small brown pup.

    Some owners like a humorous twist by giving their small dog a big dog name or big dog a small sounding name.
