Choosing a name for your dog is a pretty important life decision, as your canine is generally considered a big part of your life. For many people, dogs are often thought of as an extra beloved family member! Names for dogs, much like getting names for a baby, can be inspired by a number of various things and are even taken from real peoples’ names. There are those classic female dog names that one wouldn’t dare name a child, and then there are the ones who are named after notable people. There are so many different names you can choose from, you just have to choose the one that best suits your puppy’s personality!
Many folks are influenced to name their furry friends after important folks, including celebrities, fictitious characters from movies and books – even fashion designers are sources of inspiration! After all, there’s a reason names like Bella (Kristen Stewart in the Twilight Saga, anyone?) and Coco (Chanel – only one of the biggest names in fashion) take the two top spots of the best and most popular female dog names list! Other inspired names include names deriving from food items, like Bacon (because who doesn’t love that meat product?!), Candy (the dog is bound to be sweet) and Oreo (such a fun name… and a fun snack to eat!).
