111 Beautiful Flower Names For Dogs

I am a lover of all things nature and flowers are top on the list of course. It got me thinking – what kind of flower names for dogs are out there?

I have never named any of my pets with a floral name, but wish I had because there are some beautiful options out there. While you may have heard the same ones over and over like Rose, Lily or Daisy – there are so many other floral name options to consider.

Oh, and I know what you are thinking – these names will only be for girl dogs! But, guess what – there are quite a few names that can be used for both girls and boys!

This list of flower dog names is just that – JUST flower names and nothing but flower names. You won’t find Brutus or Lady on this list – only flowers with their traditional names.

What To Consider With A Floral Dog Name

Naming a dog is not always easy. You want the name to be something you can live with for the foreseeable future! It should somehow resemble their personality and appearance and have some meaning.

  • If you are a gardener – then choosing a floral name of your favorite flower is perfect!
  • If your dog is spunky and strong-willed, then a name like Fleur may not work, but what about Gaura! That sounds a bit stronger and can work for a male or female dog.
  • What if you got a pup that is laid back, sweet and sensitive? Then a name like Freesia or Primrose may be better suited.
  • Their appearance can also lead the direction of the name you choose. If you have a white dog you may go with Dahlia or Calla. A beige dog – maybe Goldenrod or Zinnia.

Whatever you decide to go with, just make sure you call it out loud a few times to make sure it sounds good and that you can imagine yourself using it for years to come!
