Choosing Boy Dog Names
Astro and Droopy, though your kids might be disappointed, are off limits, too.
And that's when you realize that you don't have a single clue what to name your new dog and that choosing a name for him is more difficult than you had anticipated.
But you're still kinda hoping to come across some unique dog names. The only thing you know for sure is that you don't want to call him hey you or little guy or tiger.
A cat he is not and he might take offense at being linked to the much despised felines when he learns to chase after them like most of his dog pals do.
As for little guy - more often than not, the little guy grows up to be a big guy. Most dogs grow to be big and some dogs are big even when they're pups. And then they get bigger. But the name stays with them so you might as well choose one that fits - so to speak.
As for hey you that's the guy whose name you can't remember at your high school reunion.
Choosing a name to be proud of is the most important gift you can give your dog. That is, aside from shelter, food, a warm blanket, a chewy toy and lots and lots of LOVE!
So you need the best of the boy dog names:
- Something that is adorable without being cheesy.
- Something catchy, easy to remember and fun to sound out, but something that's stylish as well.
- A name he won't have to be ashamed of in front of other pups and a name that you won't have trouble selling to your friends and family.
- Something that rings true today and will ring just as true tomorrow,
or two years down the road when the pup is a full grown dog.
Think about it, would you want your Great Dane to run happily to you, all legs and tail, across the grass of Central Park when you call out Twinkie? "T-Bone"? - maybe; "Terminator", even more so.
Boy Dog Names Are Abundant, But Be Careful When Choosing.On a side note, here's a tip: if you have kids and youre thinking of letting them pick the name for your pooch, make sure you get the last word.
Kids arent best known for their visionary thinking. Fun, yes; foresight - not so much!
When coming up with boy dog names, remember that finding the perfect one is made a lot easier when you match it with your dog's personality. Take into account his size, his breed and habits. Though breeds share collective traits, dogs are individuals. Just like people.
Make sure you get to know your dog a little bit before settling for a name. And once you pick a name, stick by it and don't confuse your pooch. Remember this: your pup loves you unconditionally and no matter which dog name you choose, he'll come running to you each time with a big toothy grin, eager to play and to be scratched behind the ear.
Boy Dog Names - SummaryAs you may have noticed, we've deliberately resisted recommending specific names for your dog, or including long lists that can make the task get overly analytical and very time-consuming.
But, while we like the idea of picking a name more spontaneously, we do feel some owners might benefit from a bit of help in getting started. So here is a short list of what we consider more unique names for boy dogs, or ones you're not likely to hear that often at the dog park:
