101 Designer Dog Names

I put the names into different lists, such as the names of supermodels, fashion designers, jewelry, luxury brands, and more. Further, I have gathered the top tips for naming your puppy.

Check out my tips and the best designer dog names below. Then, pick the best one for your new puppy. 

Top Eight Tips for Naming Your Puppy

First, you should get to know your puppy. Before you even bring the canine home, play with the dog at the breeder or pet shop. Take some time to learn more about your dog’s personality.

Also, pay attention to the research. Generally, researchers have found that pets pick up shorter names and those with only one or two syllables much better than long monikers. 

Further, don’t choose any dog names that sound similar to the typical commands you’d want your dog to learn. For instance, you don’t want to pick the name Doll if you expect your puppy to learn how to roll over.

You can also look through a baby name book before choosing a label for your puppy. After all, you may want to choose a more general name that makes your pet feel closer to a real family member.

You can also name your dog based on its breed and outward appearance. For instance, you can call your pooch Sunny if you have a Labrador Retriever with a bright yellow-colored coat.

Put together a list of the hobbies you plan to participate in with your dog. For instance, do you plan to take your dog to the local park to play fetch or go on a jog? If so, you can name your dog Parker.

Do you have several wonderful books or movies that you adore? If so, name your pet after your favorite novel or film. For example, I have named one of my parakeets Gatsby in the past.

Books can make excellent options for a pet’s name.

Do you love certain foods and make sure to eat them every week? Or do you love seasonal fruit? If so, you can pick it for your lovely dog.

For example, a few names you could pick include Cherry, Macaroon, or Cupcake. Follow these tips when naming your dog and check out more options below.
