It is always interesting to see how you name your dog and the topic of dog names is very controversial. Most owners like to name their dogs after humans. For example, Matthew or Andrew. Others would like to name them based on their favorite movie characters or the book they read. For example, Black Beauty or Cholera (although they are quite strange they are still the dog’s real names). Finding the best dog names for your best friend can be difficult, but it shouldn’t be, and it can be fun.
While this is trivial, it certainly makes you think … How do pet owners name their dogs? Here is a list of boy dog names. We also share a few tried and true ways to choose a name for this cute little dog or newly adopted Shelter Dog:
Explanatory – Many people choose names that somehow describe the shape or behavior of their pet. Think “spot” for Dalmatian, “fresco” for a strong dog, or “blackie” for a Labrador retriever (one of my favorite dog names).
Character – Some people like to know their pet before choosing a name so that they can match the name to the character of the dog. What about a “cheer” for a cheerful dog or a “chopper” for a dog that barks a lot? If you’ve ever seen the movie The Jerk, the character of Steve Martin has chosen an interesting name for his dog … but it is not suitable for this article.
Environment – Some pet owners make names according to their environment or location. For example, a family living on Sunterra Court Street in the Sage Wood Meadows neighborhood named their two dogs “Sage” and “Terra”.
Humanization – This is probably the largest category of dog names because our society spends so much time humanizing its dogs in so many ways. That’s why we see names in the most popular list of dog names like Jack, Charlie, Toby, Lucy, Molly, Sophie and so on.
The biggest problem lies in the fact that we have so many possible choices and there is a great chance that you are looking for a unique dog name. You want one that suits the dog’s personality and avoid names that can be harmful. The key is making it fun. The dog name you choose will be used approximately 25,000 times during the animal’s life, so it is best for your dog to agree with the name you are going to give it. Let’s think of a good dog name for your friend. There are many ways to handle this. The good news is that there are hundreds of sites online that will help you choose from a large list of dog names. Let’s look at some examples.
The two most popular dog names for boys in the United States are Max and Jack. The most popular collection of female dog names is Molly and Maggie. You may not want a dog’s famous name and you want a famous dog’s name, although it seems strange to have a dog named Christina Aguilera, Madonna, Ben Affleck, or The Undertaker. You can also choose the name of your dog by breed. For example, the popular names for Labrador Retrievers are Heidi, India, or Jade. Popularity for German Shepherds is in Action, Bruno or Phantom. The dog’s unique names stand for Brownie, Caviar, Pretzel, or Okra. It is up to you to decide where to go with your dog’s name.
