As always, we’ll break our royal dog names list into two sections: one for boy dogs and one for girls.
Of course, some names are fairly gender-neutral, so feel free to grab names from either list for either sex!
Since not all of these aristocratic pet names are blatantly obvious and self-explanatory, I’ll add a tiny description next to each one to note where they’re from.
Just keep in mind that some names are repeated throughout history! I can’t even tell you how many kings were named Henry over the centuries, so I just note one example for each monarch.
Make sense? Good! Let’s check them out!

With so many fabulous male royal dog names, it’s hard to choose a favorite! Although it’s a mouthful, I like Alulim because of the history.
The most regal dog deserves the name of the world’s first king, right? If it’s too hard to say (it’s not the best training name), you can shorten it to “Lim” or “Al.”
Not loving that one? Otto is another favorite of mine, and it rolls right off the tongue during training.

The royal dog names for females section has some of the most beautiful names ever, don’t you think?
I personally love Zoe, and it’s super easy for everyone in the family to say (including smaller kids).
Of course, if you want to get really historical, you can go with Kubaba, the world’s first queen. It’s definitely easier to say than the male counterpart.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering how to pronounce #3, it’s AIL-f-thrith. If that’s too much, you can go with the modernized version, Elftrudis (or Elfrida).
