Here you’ll find great lists with unique dog names for every dog! All carefully selected and presented to you for the precious creature that just entered your life!
I have researched many sources and found thousands of names for dogs. However, I decided to include Only Those Appropriate For A Dog and not fill up pages with endless lists.
There are some things you should consider when choosing a dog name so that you won’t regret it later.

-Keep it sort and simple. Dogs respond better to names with one or two syllables. Three maximum. Your dog will learn its name quicker and training will become MUCH easier.
-Have in mind that you are going to use one of these unique dog names many times a day, everyday, for the next 10-15 years. Let’s assume that you call your dog 15 times a day. That’s 54.750 times in 10 years! So, pick wisely.
-Say it aloud and listen to yourself. How does it sound? Is it easy to pronounce?
-How do you feel saying it? Would you feel comfortable shouting this name in public? What’s the dog’s reaction?
-Have in mind that your dog's name is his/her identity in the public world and also says a lot about you since you picked it. Does it send out the right message?
-Don’t choose a name that sounds like a command. This will probably confuse your dog and make training harder.
-Avoid giving your dog the name of a relative, co-worker, friend or your boss. Many people may feel offended.
-Avoid any potentially embarrassing name. Something that sounds pretty at first, when your dog is still a cute little puppy, can make you feel uncomfortable in the future. Names like "killer" or "stinky" can make people smile when they belong to a little puppy. When that same puppy grows up though things change...
-Reject any name that humiliates your dog. Names like "silly" or anything like that.
-Respect your dog. Take into consideration his/her gender, breed, size, color, personality and special traits. Take your time and get to know your dog. This knowledge will give you the best ideas for the perfect name.
-Always keep in mind that dogs may not understand human language but they can certainly understand human reactions!
