Find the Perfect Name for Your Friendly Male Dog

Welcoming a large breed dog calls for many significant decisions and lifestyle changes. One of the most interesting, emotional, and crucial works is to find the perfect name for your male dog.

You may have got a puppy who will grow into a massive breed dog or may get a fully grown adult male dog – naming your pet is crucial.

There are several ways to decide on a cool and smart name. For instance, you can look online, ask your friends to pitch in, or get the family involved. But always ensure that the name of your pet should match its personality.

Tips for naming your giant dog

There are several considerations before naming your pet. However, there are no hard-fast rules for naming your male dog. After all, a pet is your family member.

Hence, it is your choice to choose a name for your pet. But, if you are clueless, here are some tips to help you make a smart choice.

Tips for naming your giant dog

Long or short name:

Dogs don’t respond to longer version names. It means you must think of single work names and try to restrict to simple-sounding words. The length of the dog’s name is crucial. Try to restrict yourself to two-three syllables.

Anything beyond that will only create confusion in your dog’s head. If you still consider keeping a long name, have a shorter version so that most people call your pet that one.

Some of the examples are:

  • Mike Tyson (long version) – Tyson (short version)
  • Sylvester Stallone (long version) – Rocky (short version)
  • Big Friendly Giant (long version) – BFG (short version)

Always keep it simple: 

Never complicate your pet’s name. Dogs are smart animals, but you cannot expect them to respond to names with difficult pronunciations. On the other hand, to keep cool names doesn’t mean you end up naming him something technical or jargon.

Some of the examples are:

  • Brobdingnag
  • Gogmagog
  • Jormungandr

Unique and distinguishable: 

Well, when you want to name a giant breed dog, your name must sound powerful and unique. Try to think of exclusive names and stay away from commonly used words. Do not confuse your dog with a name that sounds similar to any command or thing or name of a location.

Dogs have sharp ears and a sense of understanding, but it will become too testing for them if you think of a name that sounds like sit, go, walk, or stay.

Some of the examples are:

  • Ray – it sounds like you stay
  • Thump – sounds like a jump
  • Mo – sounds like go

Avoid weird names:

You may want to go unique and stylish for your pet’s name. Remember that your pet’s name will stay with him for 15-20 years. So, choose wisely.

Try not to think of names that sound rude or offensive in public. While taking your pup for walks or socially enjoying communal parks, you don’t want to call your dog weird or rude names.

Some of the examples are:

  • Shaggy
  • Piggy boy
  • Cletus
