The unique male dog names on this page are considered unique because they aren’t the run of the mill names so often heard on all the other dogs at the groomers or kennel.
Let’s face it, your pup is unique, isn’t he? Then why give him a male name that you’ve heard a million times already? One of the dangers of giving him a common title is that when you call him at the dog park, not only will he respond, but a lot of other pups will come running too!
Have you ever thought out the ramifications that come with having a bunch of canines calledd Max* in your car after playtime down at the park? Sure, your pup will love the extra company, but will you?
This is one of the reasons why we stayed away from offering the most commonly heard male names on this page, and only offer distinctive ideas for unique pups like yours.
*Max is voted the most popular male name year after year.
Astro: Is your pup out of this world? Does he orbit around you when you come home? Is your love for him astronomical? Then maybe Astro might make a good unique choice, or perhaps Astro Boy as a variation.
*Somewhat similar ideas: Orbit, Shuttle
Bullwinkle: Good for the male dog with large ears, or one whose large enough to take up most of the room. Also good for the fans of the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon from years ago who’ll remember his famous quote…”Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat.”
*More great ideas: Rocky, Mr. Peabody
Cabo: A unique male dog name for the pup that likes to party. Named after the popular vacation location of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, better not let this party pooch drink and drive!
*Other cool picks: Rio, Havana, Vegas
