Girl Dog Names.Things To Consider BEFORE You Name Her:

Wake me up when you’ve thought of my name.

 

 

#1: Letting The Kids Name The Dog

 

If you have a family, then quite rightly you will be looking for the best dog breeds for kids. But does that mean you are going to let the children name her?

Hmm. I’ll give you a hint to the right answer…

If your children are small (like mine were we bought our first dog) they will tend to want to bestow a ‘fashionable’ name upon their helpless new friend.

I remember looking through hundreds of unique boy dog names for our little Staffie and my children rejected every one of them, instead begging me to let them call him Eric (after the Prince in The Little Mermaid?!)

Thankfully my husband intervened and we came to a suitable compromise!

It’s your choice but all I’m saying is think carefully before handing over the reins.

#2: Finding The Meaning Behind Girl Dog Names

 

 Finding a name your girl dog is an important decision. Rather than choosing the first name that takes your fancy, invest time and do some research (after all, this is a name that you will be calling for the next ten years or so.)

Find out more about female dog names and meanings and choose a name that has some personal connection to you and your family history. These always tend to be the best female dog names.

 

 

#3: When Size Matters

 

What are your little girl’s personality and character traits?  For example, Bernese Mountain Dog puppies are gorgeous, cute bundles of fluff – for a while. Give them a year or so and they grow into b-i-i-g-g- dogs! Giving a small name like Titch to one of the big dog breeds might not be one of your wisest decisions!

#4: The Joker 

 

There are many cute girl dog names to choose from.

Take the name ‘Ebony‘, for example. A beautiful girl puppy name.

But not the kind of name that you’d choose if you were looking at white dog breeds!

Or the name Butch for a Chihuahua.

Of course, the name that you choose for your dog is completely your decision – and I am not saying that every name for your girl should be right and proper – BUT unless you are a complete joker (in which case go for gold!) try to keep your choice of dog name relevant.

Or else be prepared for lots of comments when the time comes to socialise your puppy in the local park!

#5: Too Many Syllables

 

Avoid dog names with too many syllables. Ideally no more than three.

Try to think forward – to when you are training your dog and imagine calling out a name such as Serendipity or Anastasia?

Both lovely names but not so easy to get your tongue around when you have dog training mistakes that need quickly addressing!

 

 

#6: Get To Know Your Girl Dog Before You Name Her

 

It is for this reason that some new dog owners choose only to name their dog after they have gotten to know their new little family member.

Just a week or so should give you an idea of what your pooches personality has in store for you. And know, knowing all of this, it is time to choose a name for your girl!
