Male Dog Names... Make Him Proud!

Here is a comprehensive list of male dog names and male puppy names that owners have named their pets, from popular and common, to unique and unusual.  I find this the most exciting part of getting a new dog! 

My own dog is a mixed breed (part Shepherd, part hound) and we named her Justice.  I loved the name, and it made her sound tougher than she really is... read about how Justice came to us here

And yes, it is possible to change a puppy's name if you don't like the one that he or she came with.  Justice came to us as "Princess", and that just really didn't sound right to me.

It might take a little bit for the new name to stick, but it's do-able.  That being said, it can be confusing for your dog to change its name, especially if he is older.  It can help to pick a new name that sounds quite similar to the old one - "Justice" sounds similar to "Princess", so there were no issues there!

Whoops... are you maybe looking for female dog names?  There's another great page with lots of awesome names for the girls! 

Have a great male dog name that's not on the list?  Scroll down to the end and brag about it there!  I love to hear about other cool names that your furry friends have :)
