Can’t decide what to name that sweet new girl you just adopted? No worries! We rounded up 15 of the most popular female dog names for a bit of inspiration! Just like with kids, we want to choose dog names that have meaning but that are also cute and memorable. If you have a new puppy or if you’ve recently rescued a dog, you may be struggling to find a name that best fits your new furry family member. Choosing a name can be hard, especially when there are thousands to choose from!
Thankfully, you can follow a few guidelines. Dog experts say that your dog’s name should have one or two syllables. Short and easy names are more likely to be understood by your dog. It may also be ideal to pick a name that does not sound like a command. For instance, naming a dog Skip may be confused with “sit.” It’s also best to avoid naming your dog a name that is similar to a family member, which could also be confusing. To help alleviate some of the work, here are 15 of the most popular female dog names. We hope you like them!
