The Ultimate A-Z Guide To Girl Dog Names

Choosing girl dog names should be something you put some thought into.

You want your dog to clearly understand when you are calling them and not be confused by their name sounding like other words.

When we brought Cleo home to foster, it took us literally 2 hours to come up with names.

There was three of us sitting around spouting out names.

Then my daughter said “Chloe” – which I liked but did not love.

Then, it happened. I cannot remember who it was but someone called out “Cleo” and bam, there it was – her new name.

Naming a girl dog is a big deal, so you want to give them a name that everyone is happy with and that your dog can easily understand.

Naming Tips For Girl Dogs

  • Be aware of family names first. You do not want to name your dog Cleo if you have a daughter named Chloe for example. It may be too confusing for your dog to understand the difference.
  • Think of commands you want to train your dog with. If you are giving commands like stay or sit, you may not want to use names like Mae or Ritt. I know bad examples, but you get the point! If the names are too similar to a command, you can see where the confusion might be.
  • What are the physical characteristics of your dog? Does she have spots – or stripes? Can you play off of those distinctions with a name? If your dog is all white or all black, there are so many options for creative names like ebony, snow, tar, sugar etc.
  • Think about your hobbies and activities that your family enjoys too, this can take you down a path of creative names that you will never find a list!

Remember, a dog’s name is for life.

They have to be able to clearly understand it so they come when you call and it should speak to their personality and look.
