Helpful naming tips

A name like “Rex” has an attitude about it and may suit your cheeky and tough Staffy. Calling your pup “Charlie” seems more appropriate for an easy going Cavalier. We cannot tell you what to name your cute new addition to the family nor would we like to. We want you to choose the right name, so we have provided some tips on how to do it below:

  • Watch your puppy carefully and see what type of personality he has. Does he like to be adventurous and explore everything in sight? Is he mellow and tend to be content with finding the nearest lap to sit on? Does he crave attention and constantly want you to play and cuddle him?

  • Once you have the general personality traits of your puppy figured out, you can begin to sort through a list of male puppy names and see which one fits.

    When looking at each name, get the picture of your new puppy in your head and imagine calling out to him. See if it feels right to be giving him that name. Only you can tell which one fits.
  • As you find a name that you think could fit, write it down and keep track of all the good male puppy names for your new friend.

    The less that you write down the better, it will mean less stress when you need to decide on just the one. Try not to have more that 5-10 names in the list.
  • Now you want to road test the male puppy names with shortened versions or nick names. You are more likely to call out to your puppies with the shortened name instead of the full version. If a name like “Rusty” is on your list, think about how the shortened version will sound. You may shorten “Rusty” to “Russ” or use the nickname “Rustinator”. It is entirely up to you.

  • As you find shortened versions of the name you should be able to settle on just one. Practice calling out to your pup with the new name and see if it feels right.

If it does then it is great, you have found your new puppy a great name. If it doesn’t feel right, go back to your list of 5-10 and try another name.

Try not to call your puppy a name too much until you have settled on one. You can confuse your pup and you may end up with your friend responding to a name you don’t particularly like.

Whichever name you choose, you must be happy to call out to your puppy and feel great when doing so. The name should put a smile on your face when you use it. So remember, there are many male puppy names but only you know which one suits your cute puppy.
