Find the Perfect Unique Name for Your Boy Dog

Having trouble choosing a unique dog name? We’ve done all the work for you. Easily narrow your search with our dog search engine - the google for dog names.


How to Choose a Unique Boy Dog Name

Choosing a unique boy dog name can be as difficult as choosing a baby name because it will last his lifetime. A unique name for your dog will be heavily based on what you personally find unique. Perhaps a name based on foods like Gumbo is unique, or a name that has no actual meaning like Boo Boo is unique. There are many different ways to come up with unique dog names, so here are a few tips to help you get started.

Unique or Trendy?

Similar to choosing unique names for babies, the name you choose must be meaningful to you; otherwise, the name is just a trend and will fade in the future. It’s easy to mistaken unique names with trendy names - almost like a tattoo you regret getting, but at least the name isn’t permanent. So what exactly makes a name unique? The dictionary definition of the term is “existing as the only one or as the sole example; single; solitary in type or characteristics”. To be truly unique, you will need to consider these three factors: the dog, the dog owner, and randomness.

Uniqueness Based on Your Dog

As with other dog naming conventions, the characteristics of your dog will be helpful if you want to add meaning to a name, but quite necessary for a unique name. Find out his breed, personality, adult size, color, or other unique characteristics that will help you choose or create a name. For example, let’s say your dog is a terrier with black fur and has unique white fur along the front of his body, which is unique to this dog. A great name choice to add to your list would be Oreo because he’s small, sweet, and actually looks like an Oreo!

Uniqueness Based on You

What better way to be unique than to create a name based on you, the dog owner? Consider your own unique characteristics or interests and write those down. Then generate as many associated words as you can from each major word you listed. For example, if you are a car enthusiast your associated words would be words pertaining to car parts, car brands, or car types.

Uniqueness Based on… Randomness

Yes, you read that right. If none of the above methods helped and you still want your dog to have a unique name then base it on complete randomness, which will assure its uniqueness by nature. Seriously, start by making a list of random thoughts that you may have throughout the day. Have at least 20 words on your list and start mashing words together. Spell words differently or splice parts of your words with other random words. This process is much more free-form, but you’re bound to get inspired by a few ideas and create a good list.

Make A Shortlist

Continue to narrow down these words until you find a word or name that can be added to your top list. If a certain category of area of interest just doesn’t produce any good name ideas then move on to another category and continue this process. Once you get a few great names down you’ve done most of the leg work. Now the hardest part is picking which name to choose from all the work you’ve done!

Keep Your Choices a Secret!

After you’ve narrowed down your list to a few good choices it is important to not tell anyone about your names choices until you’ve made your choice! Why? Because it will no longer be unique if they happen to like it and use it for themselves! Believe it or not, this has happened to dog owners before and prevented them from using it. Also, asking other people for their opinion won’t help unless you explain the meaning behind the unique name. What’s important is not what others think about the name, it’s all about what it means to you and your dog.
