Top Female Dog Names

You’re probably welcoming a dog into your home but you’re uncertain about which name to choose? You’ve come to the right place.

Choosing a proper name for your dog is really important, both to her training and to your own happiness. Some dog parents just take one look at their dog and just know it’s going to be a Coco or a Bailey while others take longer to decide.

We’re here to help you figure out how to choose from the sea of various options there are!

According to Sound

Whether you train your dog yourself or hire a professional trainer, she is going to learn to respond to that particular name.

So naturally, you would want to choose a name that would be both short and easy to repeat. But it’s also incredibly important if your little friend is a puppy. You don’t want your dog to get confused whether you’re simply calling her name or actually commanding her.

It would be safe to avoid one-syllable names that your dog might misunderstand for a training cue like ‘Bo’ which might sound like ‘no!’. In fact, dog experts ideally recommend a name that has two syllables with a sing-song sound at the end.

It would also be better if the syllables repeat or end in vowel sounds like ‘ee’ or ‘ah’. This way, your dog will easily recognize the name when called and you won’t be having any trouble repeating it!

And before you settle on a name, make sure you test it out with a few commands and see how it sounds when you say it again and again.

According to Meaning

Having a name you can roll-out easily on your tongue and free of any confusion is amazing! However, beyond being practical, you should have a name that will bring you joy! After all, your dog will make you happy.

You can choose a name that is really meaningful to you or you can be inspired by your favorite book, TV-show, or even your favorite food! If you love a character named ‘Emma’, there’s really no one stopping you from naming your dog after her! There’s also no reason not to name her ‘Biscuit’ or ‘Cinnamon’.

A foreign country name can also serve as a reminder of a beautiful time you’d spent there or just remind you of places you really love. You can name your dog ‘Paris’ or ‘Chelsea’ or ‘Dakota’ as long as you and your little furry friend are happy.
