4 Tips for Choosing Unique Dog Names

There are plenty of tips for naming your new puppy and you do need to be careful with unique names. If you want to give your pup a unique dog name, here are a few tips:

1. Easily Recognizable

Dogs respond well to short, choppy names because it is quick and easily recognizable. If you want to create a unique and interesting name, be sure it has plenty of consonants and syllables. This way it will sound short and choppy but will still be interesting and fun.

2. Avoid Trends

Many owners enjoy naming their pup “people names”, such as Molly, Max, Bella, and Lucy. Owners also name their dogs with people’s names from two generations before their birth. This explains why there is a sudden onslaught of Mables, Freddys, and Olivers.

You can also take inspiration from books, movies, and more. There are several popular Disney-inspired dog names. It’s fine to use trends to get inspired, but you want to make sure the name works for you and your dog and isn’t going to be an obstacle once it’s no longer “on-trend”.

3. Test Them Out

Have a list of possible names and stand in the doorway across from your new friend. Say each one with the same enthusiasm and eye contact. If and when they respond to one in particular, repeat and call at different tones and volumes.

If they respond positively and quickly, then that should be their name. Dogs see the name as their identifiers and will pick whichever one suits them best.

4. Adopting

If you are adopting from a shelter, it should be fine to change the dog’s name if you feel it is necessary. They will be able to respond to a new name quickly and easily.

Many shelters are not given a name when a dog is surrendered or found. The shelters provide a basic name for the time being, so your new friend will be happy to answer to something he or she can call their own.

Just be sure to follow the ideas and suggestions above to pick the right name for your dog and your dog will be recognizing their own name in no time.
