Boy/Male Dog Names

 Popular Male Dog Names


So you’ve finally found the perfect male dog to add to your family. While the search is half of the fun, picking the perfect name is the other. Remember to keep the process fun for the entire family by picking a name that represents all of you.


If the dog is for a child, help them pick the name. For many children this is one of the first “big decisions” that they will make. Try to guide them away from anything that is too age-specific. Remember that your child’s interests will change quickly as they grow and while they may think Optimus Prime is a great name now, they might regret it later.


Although we don’t admit it choosing a dog’s name is just as, if not more fun for adults. There is nothing wrong with common names like Brownie and Fluffy but many of us like to choose names that are more reflective of our personalities.
