I mean, if you are going to be calling your dog by that name day in and day out for the next several years it should be something good right? You could consider regular people names such as Beth or Mikey.
There have also been owners who have named their dogs after movie stars such as the good ole Lassie and of course, who can forget The Beast from the movie The Sand Lot? The great thing about dog names is that they are not held to the strict standards that human names are.
You have much more creative freedom for coming up with something truly unique.
So make sure you take advantage of this and choose a dog name that people will be talking about.
You can of course choose a dog name that will describe the attributes of your dog such as Killer, Tiny, Timid, Sharp Tooth, Beast and Giant.
There is also the option of just going with something plain and normal such as Spot, Rover or Fido.
You know what would be hilarious? Naming a huge dog something that makes it sound small and harmless and naming a tiny dog something that makes it sound huge and ferocious.
That is what is so great about naming a dog, there is no rules holding you back.
The sky is the limit.
A friend of mine had quite a creative name for her dog.
He was black and white and was named Oreo, which fit him perfectly.
On the other hand, my mother has a Black Lab that she named Sadie so you really do have many options.
You can literally name your dog after anyone or anything.
Ranging from disliked relatives to childhood friends to even super heroes, foods, cities or anything else you can think of.
Just make sure you are never ashamed to use the name you choose for your dog when out in public.
This is why profanity and other degrading words are not the best to use for dog names.
