Naming Your Male Puppy

Naming Your Male Puppy

While naming your male puppy may not have the same lifetime significance as naming a baby boy, it’s a name you and your dog will be living with for a long time, so it deserves some thought. A good name can actually enhance your dog’s responsiveness and improve communication between you. For instance, dogs have an easier time hearing hard consonants and long vowels, so a name like “Lucky” or “Benny” will be easier for him to distinguish from other sounds. Most experts recommend a one or two-syllable name that you can say quickly.

It’s also commonly recommended that you avoid names that sound like commands, for example, “Kit,” which sound like “sit,” or “Joe,” which sounds like “no.” Pick a name you like to say (and that you won’t be embarrassed yelling across the dog park). You’ll be saying his name a lot over time, as a quick attention grabber or in those long conversations all dog lovers have with their pets.

Looking for boy dog names in 2018? Just like baby names, dog names rise and fall in popularity. For instance, the number of dogs named after “Frozen” characters rose 900 percent the year after the movie came out. Names from the “Twilight” movies and “Game of Thrones” are also on the rise. Food, drink, and popular culture are current favorite themes, too. There was a 37 percent rise in food-themed names from 2013 to 2014. And at least 20 percent of dogs have human names.
