Colorful Dog Names

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?

    Fabulous. Love Buttercup for a cream coloured girl – so sweet. all very clever. I tend to nickname my calico/tortie cat my caramel chocolate sundae.

    Our white dog is called Casper after the ghost!
    We did also toy with calling him Snowy after the dog in the Tin Tin comics!
