What kind of name are you looking for, something cute, or tough for your new boy or girl puppy or dog? Something unique and unusual?

Tips for Choosing a dog name

It is recommended that you keep dog names to one or a maximum of 2 syllables where possible to make it easier for your dog to recognize. Short one or two syllable names make the best dog names because its also something you can call out quickly in an emergency.

Its advisable not to choose a dog name that is actually similar to same word as a training command, like SIT, DOWN, etc. Also, ideally not words similar to the word NO. It has been known in advance obedience trial for dogs with names similar to some commands to make a mistake and cost them in the competition.

Alot of people like to choose from the most typically doggy favourite common names. Others like myself like to choose something slightly different and unique to us. The choice is entirely yours.

Choosing the ideal name for your new puppy or dog can be a difficult task. It was for me anyway, it tooks me months to decide on the name of my first Airedale puppy. I wanted something different that I hadn’t heard before,a unique dog name.

Eventually I chose the name Storm for my female Airedale Terrier. At the time some people thought it a male dogs name, or that in fact she was named after a U.S General Storming Normal from the first Gulf War, which she wasn’t. Recently from the X-Men movies Halle Berry played the female Storm. Quite often she got called Stormy, which was more feminine anyway. Not that it really mattered.

See the A-Z categories below for lists of the best dog names which may well give you the idea for a different cool dog name. We list all kinds of names, from Hunting to black dogs, Boxers to Maltese. As well as names from all around the world such as German, Australian, French, Scottish and Mexican.
