115+ Good Male Dog Names


Choosing a name for your puppy is not always easy. Personal preference is often an important factor when choosing a name for a boy’s puppy. Many people choose a male puppy’s name to commemorate a previous pet they may have owned.
But there are also some practical tips to consider when choosing names for a puppy boy:

  • Choose names for a puppy boy from one or two syllables. Short dog names are easier to recognize.
  • If you decide to use a long name for your puppy, consider what the shortened version would be. You will probably use the short version of the boy’s name more often than you think.
  • Pick a name for the dog or puppy that you will happily name at the dog park. Shouting “Jack” or “Oscar” can be less embarrassing than screaming “Breath of Death”!
  • Choosing a name that includes high tones will help you get your dog’s attention more easily.
  • Keep in mind that your dog will change the stages of his life. For instance. choosing a name such as “Puppy” may no longer be appropriate for an older Bullmastiff.

So, we’ve put together a list of good male names for your puppy for you. Look and choose!
