Male Dog Names & Puppy Names

Choosing names for male dogs isn’t always easy. Personal likes are often important factors when choosing a boy puppy name or male dog name. Many people choose a male dog name or male puppy name in memory of a previous pet they may have owned.

But there are also a few practical tips you should consider when choosing names for male dogs:

  • Pick male dog names with one or two syllables. Short dog names are more easily recognised by dogs.
  • If you decide to go with a long dog name for your male dog, think about what the short version of this male dog name will be. You will probably use the short version of the male dog name or boy puppy name more than you think.
  • Pick a male dog name or male puppy name that you are happy to call out in the dog park. Calling out "Jack" or "Oscar" may be less embarrassing than calling out "Death Breath"!
  • Choosing a male dog name or boy puppy name that includes high pitched tones will help to get your dog's attention more easily.
  • Keep in mind that your dog will change its life stages. E.g. choosing a male dog name or boy puppy name like "Puppy" may not be that suitable anymore for a senior Bullmastiff.
  • You want to make sure you can easily pronounce the male dog name or male puppy name. It should just roll off your tongue.
