I bet you’re looking for some really fantastic Siberian Husky dog names, right?
Well, get ready to be inspired; we’ve rounded up 90 that we just adore.
Good luck choosing just one; you may need to think about getting two puppies at once!
Take a look and you’ll see what I mean!
Siberian Husky Dog Names
Siberian Huskies were first bred as sled dogs by the indigenous Chukchi tribe, in northeastern Siberia, Russia.
They are known for their wolf-like appearance, featuring penetrating eyes, pointed ears and pronounced snout.
They also feature a thick, double coat that is designed to protect them in very cold environments.
Here are some awesome Siberian husky dog names that honor all of the above, from their origins to their winter hardiness!
