Tips for choosing the best dog name

Tips for choosing the best dog name. Choosing a dog name is quite a task. The name of our four-legged friend says a lot about ourselves. It is therefore logical that dog owners spend a lot of time choosing a nice name. But where do you start? Below we give you 4 tips for choosing the perfect dog name. If you still can't figure it out after this blog, don't worry. We will give you a helping hand.

Tip 1) Choose a short name

Dogs listen more to sounds than to names. That is why it is important that it is not too long. This makes it better to choose a dog name with 1 or 2 syllables. Your dog will remember short names faster and it is also easier to say. So it's a win win!

Tip 2) Make sure the name doesn't look like a command

If your dog's name sounds very similar to a command, this can cause confusion. Raf, for example, seems very close. This may cause your dog to lie down when you call him/her.

Tip 3) Be inspired by characteristics of your dog

A good tip for choosing a nice dog name is to take a good look at your dog. Does your dog have certain characteristics that stand out? For example, some dogs have blue eyes and that is why you could call him/her “Blue”. Or if your dog is snow white, you can choose “Snow" or Ice. These names are mainly focused on external characteristics, but you can also be inspired by the character traits of your dog. For example, if your dog has a cheerful character you can call him/her “Joy”.

Tip 4) Choose a dog name with meaning

Sometimes it's nice to give your dog a name with a nice meaning. For example, Rex means king in Latin and Beau means beautiful in French. A good tip is to have the meaning translated. Google Translate really is your best friend in this regard. Choose a nice meaning and have it translated into different languages. This way you will automatically find a unique name!
