Welcoming a puppy into the family is exciting and overwhelming – and one challenge is naming the pet. You can start by coming up with some generic names like Rocky, Tommy, Casper or Merlin – or you can wait for the breed to arrive and find a suitable name.
We will! The approach is different, but it depends on you to choose a unique name for your canine friend. How about determining the breed for adoption or bringing one from the shelter so the puppy feels comfortable at home.
You start by calling different names and see if the dog responds to them. It’s another unique way to name your pet. For more help, here are the tips for choosing puppy names†
Thinking outside the box:
You can’t have a common name for your family member – a cute dog that is so loyal and loving deserves a unique name. Start by looking online or head to the library for exceptional puppy names. You can get inspiration for your name and create something similar.
For example – Your name is Benjamin. So you can name your puppy Benji.
Avoid long names:
Dogs are great at responding to simple and short names; instead of long names. Think of names that have no more than two syllables. It is easier for a small puppy to respond to short names than to big and long names.
The ideal approach for this is to call your puppy by name again. This way they will register to that particular sound and respond.
Don’t use command words as names:
You may just come up with a powerful sounding name for your German Shepherd or Mastiff. But don’t forget to save names that sound like a command. For example, “Ray” that sounds like “stay” or “Kit” that sounds like “Sit” may confuse your puppy.
Also avoid names that sound coarse or harsh. Remember that dogs can sense your emotion and you don’t want to confuse your fur friend with such names.
Match their personality:
Every pet has unique traits that define its personality, which is why it is important to consider when choosing a name. You cannot call a hyperactive dog Dozer or, on the contrary, call Fuzzy a hairless breed.
Think before choosing the name. Don’t just be casual and random about it.
Easy to name names:
You don’t want to call your dog a name that is difficult to pronounce. Make it simple, sweet and easy to scream. Don’t keep names like ‘Cruella de Vii’ or ‘Ghanshyamdas’ – your dog won’t respond to longer names or get confused.
End the name with a vowel:
The best tip saved for the end is to keep a puppy’s name that ends in a vowel. Because every word that ends in a vowel has a sharp sound that makes it easy to pronounce. Think of names that end in a, e, i, o, u.
Think of a name that is close to your heart and don’t make it sound fancy. Look for the origins of the dog breed and come up with names that resemble the roots. I hope and wish you find a great name for your puppy.
