Whats in a dogs name?
The first thing most people think of when they get a new addition is what they will call him/her? it’s a name that this animal will be called by for the next 12-20 years!! So even if the name may seem relevent now don’t forget that your stuck with it! I do feel that it’s why people go for the “safe bet” while Molly and Max maY never go out of fashion do you really want to shout “Molly” in the park and have every dog come running?? I too have a Molly and a Bella (bestowed upon them before I rescued them but kept to avoid confusion).
When asked how did you go about naming your dog ? Feedback from my clients varied. Some people named their pets after something they already had a good association with aka food “Muffin” or “Cookie” and some people allowed their children to come up with the name.

Working in various rescue centres we had to come up with new names every day which often meant coming up with themes – usually TV show characters, bands or food products.
So if you’ve just got a new dog. Congratulations!! Here’s my list of good and what i feel are underused dog names hopefully these help!
