180+ Red Dog Names


Dogs with beautiful red hair are a real gift for pets. They stand out from the pack because their coat is shiny, and their fiery reddish-orange tint is rare compared to other basic dog coat colors such as black, white, or brown. Interestingly, in the days of Medieval Europe, the red dog was often considered an assistant to witches, or even their embodiment. During the era of the Inquisition, it was believed that a witch who did not want to be burned, reincarnated as a dog, and it was impossible to calculate it. Of course, today a large number of myths remain in the memory of those troubled times, but many continue to give their pets names indicating their coat color.

If you are at a loss with choosing a name for your incredible red dog, look for suitable names in our selection. Good luck!
