By: Cindy Sanjayan

You’ve selected the ideal puppy. You used up hours on the internet, researching the correct type for you and your children. Then you went from breeder to breeder or humane society to humane society, meeting and welcoming pups until you achieve just the correct match.

Now what? He needs a nickname!

Over the course of its days, you will use your dog’s name more than 35,000 times. So be sure you’re selecting a name you can live with and love.

With these 7 trouble-free steps, the key to finding the ideal puppy name is at your fingertips!

Dogs recognize short instructions. Simple names with two or fewer syllables work well.
Your puppy’s name should not sound similar to any instructions. “Stacy” and “stay” are too near for comfort. Such a pet name will only confuse the issue.
Remember, you’ll be using your pup’s name in public. “Stinky” may be cute among your fellow fraternity members, but it won’t go over well at the veterinarian.
Make your kids part of the judgment process. Kids love it trouble-free, too, so if calling your Champion Cavalier King Spaniel “Bootsie” works for them, consider keeping the hoity toity name strictly for AKC purposes.
You can think it’s an honor to name your puppy after you are favorite Uncle Norbert. Naming your baby after him may keep you in the will, but naming your pup after him might not.
If you’re bringing home an grown-up dog, ideally, stick with the name it already owns. Can’t stand it because “Barney” was the 1st boy who broke your heart? Then stick with similar sounds when picking a new dog name. “Barney” morphs into “Farley” easily.
One time you have chosen a name, try it out for a day or so. You’ll know accurate away whether it’s a keeper. If not, there’s always more puppy names on your listing!

Take a look surrounding you. Everywhere you are, you will find a variety of excellent ideas on what to name your puppy.

At 1st glance, a couple things will stand out about your new puppy. Enjoy him or her for a day or two days and take these into contemplation.

What’s your dog seem like? His color, size, and personal style inspires a variety of name choices. “Stubbs” would be a great name for a dachshund puppy. Or you could call a cream colored cock-a-poo “Buffy.”
Personality. Given a couple of days, your new dog’s character will really shine through. Try “Cuddles” for the sweet little guy who loves to find cozy or “Puddles” for the pooch who can not seem to achieve the doggie door.

If you want to go further than the basics, many famed dog names or foreign dog names can fit the bill. Think these most wanted puppy names when making your judgment.
