The 75 Best Boy Dog Names

With so many great options, picking the best boy dog names should be fun!

DogI am so glad I didn’t have to pick my own name. It seems like such a hard decision. There are so many great names out there, I wouldn’t know which would be the best boy dog names! I think my parents did a great job naming me Napa.

There are many different ways you can choose a boy dog name. If your dog has an obvious personality trait, such as being nervous or shy, you could call him Bashful. If your dog has an obvious physical trait, like small patches of black fur, you could call him Pepper! If you love a certain sports team, you could name your dog after a player. I know a dog named Youk (after Kevin Youkilis). If you love to read, pick a character’s name. How about Boo from To Kill a Mockingbird?

Pick a name that doesn’t sound like anyone else’s in your family. If your son’s name is Tom and your puppy’s name is Tommy, someone is bound to get confused. You could have a human and puppy running down the stairs to answer your call to dinner!

Practice saying your dog’s name often to see if you really love it. You’re likely to say his name often in public. If screaming “Lord Voldemort” isn’t something you want to do in a dog park, you might want to reconsider the name. That said, Lord Voldemort is a really awesome name! You’ll also be saying it a lot during training, so make sure it’s something that flows freely.
