5 Tips for a good Dog Name - Puppies and more - Hondenhoek Blog

The search for a dog name

There are dozens if not hundreds of books with names, meanings and blogs online with the perfect dog name. But how do you actually choose the perfect name for your puppy? After all, it should be an easy name, not too long, but also suit the breed and character of the dog. Keeping the following four points in mind should make choosing a name a lot easier!

1. Short names are better

An-Sofie or Alexander may be nice names, but too long for dogs. Please note that a name should not be longer than two syllables. It is not without reason that Luna and Max have been in the top 10 of popular dog names for some time. Besides the fact that names with a maximum of two syllables are easy to call, they are also easily recognizable for four-legged friends!

2. Don't choose a name that sounds like a command

Make sure that the name you choose does not sound too much like a command. For example, it can be confusing for dogs if they are given the name Tom, as it sounds a lot like "Kom". So make sure you have a unique name, but at the same time a name that does not conflict with possible commands. Need inspiration? View the top 10 most popular dog names of 2022 now!

3. Go for a distinctive name

When choosing a name, you may want to choose a distinctive name. A name that you do not hear repeatedly on the street, but a name that suits your dog, but is also not common. Do you need extra inspiration? View the top 10 most popular dog names of 2022 now!

4. Inspiration from films, music, series, . ..

Do you like watching TV? A particular series or film with an actor/actress that you like to see? Or perhaps a band or artist that you enjoy listening to? Take inspiration from these sources! Perhaps you can find a perfect name for your future four-legged friend here.
