I saw a cute article a few months back about some great names for black dogs (check it out HERE). And it got me thinking about how fun it can be to come up with new names for dogs. There are so many possibilities. You can name pets based on famous people or characters, on the pet’s personality, from mythology, or descriptive things. One descriptive thing is color. Since the above mentioned article already came up with a bunch of great names for black dogs, I have come up with a few great names for other colored dogs:
Cream or Yellow Dogs – Buttercup, Sunny, Daisy, Sunshine, Star, Dandelion, Sunflower, Lemon Meringue, Mango, Goldie, Cupcake (lemon), Honey, Nanners, Custard, Canary, Daffodil, Duckling, Star, Cream Puff, Biscuit, Ecru, Amarillo (pronounced Amareeyo which is Spanish for yellow)
White Dogs – Cloud, Moon, Snowflake, Snow White, Lily, Camellia, Magnolia, Jasmine, Powder Puff, Angel, Blanca, Blizzard, Dove, Gandolf, Glacier, Ivory, Marshmallow, Noodle, Swan, Blanche
Brown Dogs – Cocoa, Kahlua, Porter, Moose, Acorn, Brownie, Fawn, Walnut, Beaver, Bear, Ginger, Brandy, Coffee, Foldgers, Starbuck, Chai, Brewski, Casper, Wolverine
Black and White Dogs – Oreo, Cookie, Domino, Panda, Killer (whale), Penguin (or the names of the penguins in Mr. Popper’s Penguins movie), Puffin, Skunk, Ying-Yang, Spot, Moo Moo, Patches
Black and Orange Brindle Dogs – Brindy, Tiger, Bengal, Camo (as in camouflage), Confetti, Hyena
Grey Dogs – Ghost, Phantom, Casper, Silverbell, Mouse, Jerry, Cloud, Windy, Dolphin, Flipper, Storm, Shadow, Haze, Slater, Pewter, Soot, Ash, Dusty, Bunny, Thumper, Gandolf, Wolf
I could go on and on with this. It is so much fun. Can you think of other dog names that might correspond with their color?
