Tips for Choosing Your Dog’s Name
Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your fur baby’s name:
Use two syllable words: if possible, choose names that are about two syllables long. Dogs can easily identify the inflection used when you call him, talk to him, and more. And two syllable sounds are easier for dogs to understand. A name that’s too long is confusing for dogs.
Avoid names that sound like cues: don’t choose a name that sounds like a cue you’d give to the dog when training or when asking him to do something. For instance, don’t use a name such as “Faye,” which could sound similar to “stay.” It’s too confusing for your dog. He won’t know if you’re asking him to do something or calling him!
Avoid using similar names: names that sound similar or rhyme with one another can also be very confusing. Some people think it’s cute to name their dogs something like “Mo, Bo, and Joe.” All three dogs come running at the same time! However, what if you only need Mo? He needs a bath, but when you call him all three dogs come running. Also avoid using names that sound familiar to any of the humans in the house! This is another one people don’t think of. What if your daughter’s name is “Mary,” and your dog’s name is “Merry?” This is also confusing—your daughter and your dog won’t know who you’re calling or referring to.
Be careful when changing a name: if you’ve adopted a rescue dog, major congratulations! You’re giving that dog a second chance at life and that’s wonderful! But maybe the name that comes with your dog is not the one you’d choose. That’s OK, you can change it; however, do so carefully. It’s usually best to choose a name that is similar to the dog’s current name. This is especially best for older dogs and those who may have hearing problems. You can still choose a lovely new name, just make sure it sounds similar or even rhymes with the old name.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this article and that you’ve found the best name for your canine companion!
