Need some good boy puppy names? Here is our top list of hundreds to choose from.
Whether you are trying to capture a unique personality trait, highlight your puppy’s unique color, or just want a human name for your fur baby, choosing a name can be fun but very challenging.
Some people can do it on the fly, but if you are like most, a lot of thought goes into your decision. The following is a comprehensive list of names suitable for a boy puppy.
Choose a name you feel comfortable shouting in public or one you won’t be embarrassed to write on the dog’s health record at the vet’s office
Pick one that is easy to use when you start training. Remember when you begin to teach commands, you will want to say your pup’s name first, then the command.
Example: Jake, Sit
Example Napoleon Bonaparte the Third, Sit
Which name do you think might be easier?
Pick a name that is not too close to any other
family pets or humans in your household. For example, your son’s name is Jake
and you name the dog Jakey. Someone
might get a little confused.
Don’t feel obligated to choose one of the most popular dog names in the land. This
list changes often and by the time your dog is a senior, his name is unlikely
to remain on the top ten lists.
Choose a name that will be appropriate for the dog’s entire life span.
Pick one that has some meaning to you personally or one that has ties to something you are passionate about.
