Picking out dog names can be as difficult as choosing a name for your child. It’s even more difficult if you consider that you have more choices. For example, male dog names can be Max or Jake or Bob. A male child’s name can also be Max or Jake or Bob. Male dog names can be Rover or Snoopy or Boomhauser. I suppose you could name a male child these but I wouldn’t suggest it, for their sakes.
Finding male dog names should be fun, but should also be reflective of something in your life or of the dog. You could choose a name that reflects how the dog looks. Large dogs can be names of characters that are larger than life, such as Atlas or Zeus or Goliath. Small dogs could be named for things that sound small, like Pop Tart or Bug or Shrinky Dink (Shrinky or Dink for short). Some other names that suggest how a dog looks can be Shaggy, Wrinkles, Shorty, Bandit, Bull, or Tiny (this works well for a Chihuahua or a Great Dane). Mythology is a great source of ideas when it comes to dog names. You could find a lot of Greek dog names from Greek mythology, or Roman mythology or Egyptian as well.
Boy dog names can reflect your job or a favorite hobby. Are you a pilot? How about Pilot or Cesna or Boeing for your dog? A plumber can name his dog Pipes, Copper or Flush. An accountant or mathematician has a lot of options, like Abacus, Infinity or, if you happen to be an accountant and a Seinfeld fan, Seven. Some great hobby names can be Ghost or Spooky or Vortex if you’re a ghost hunter. Lincoln, Harry or George are good dog names if you’re a presidential historian. Are you an artist? Try Sketch, Charcoal or Canvas.
Sports fans have a myriad of choices for male dog names. You can name your dog after your favorite team like Red or Wings (hockey), Laker (basketball), or Colt (football). How about team mascot name like Brutus (Ohio State Buckeyes football), or Homer (Hunstville Stars minor league baseball), or Thor (Minnesota Thunder minor league soccer). Your favorite player might have a great name for your dog, like Boomer, Ali, or Lou. If you are one of those people who love all things sports, you could name your male dog Sport.
Movies and television offer some great male dog names. Rocky, Scooby, Cujo, Astro and Rambo are some common choices. For something more unique or that will have your friends guessing, try Dreyfuss (from TVs The Empty Nest), Stinky (Dharma and Greg), Bullseye (from Oliver Twist movie and book), or Bullet (you probably don’t remember the Roy Rogers Show, do you?)
Choosing male dog names doesn’t have to be difficult. Just look around you, you will find things that will remind you of the things you enjoy or the things that your life is made of. You will find a bobble-head of your favorite sports player or a DVD of your favorite movie. You might notice the work you brought home last night or your uniform hanging in the laundry room. Every part of your life can be reflected upon to come up with great dog names.
