Best Names for Dogs

The Top Ten

1 Buddy

Makes me think of Air Bud and the Buddies series. Buddy was such a good dog- I even name my cat Buddy, but that's because I kept calling him that on accident, it's probably because the name fit him so well, because he was my pal. Not better than my puppy though. Dog's are the best friend you an ever have, and I'm not just saying that because it's true. I've learned from experience.

1992 - 2009 Buddy Muswagon - SmoothCriminal

That is a good name for a dog but this is just a question why would you want to name it buddy no trying to be mean in all

My dog's brother's name is Buddy but I think it's spelt Buddie. It reminds me of Buddy from Secret Life Of Pets! Cute name!

2 Shadow

Because what if it is black? It could be shadow

Shadow makes me think of something dark, and mean. But on the bright side, shadow is a nice puppy name because a shadow follows you everywhere. Just like your puppy!

Shadow is an amazing name I find

If it's a black puppy like a kitty is should be shadow

4 Biscuit

Biscuit is ADORABLE! Perfect for a small fluffy dog, like a Maltese or a
Even a golden retriever. But personally, my favourite name EVER for a dog is; Socks or yogurt. They're totally funny names that will suit dogs with fun and affectionate personalities

Hi my opinion is that people should call their dog Biscuit because it is a really cute name my brother and I want a new puppy and we both really want to name it biscuit if it is a boy. I LOVE THE NAME BISCUIT!

Biscuit, it's a perfect dog name. We have a biscuit colored beagle hound mix and it suits him well. It just so happens its also a children's story book collection about a dog called Biscuit.

Biscuit is a good name. III

6 Max

Are you kidding me? That's my boyfriend's name! I bet he'll get pretty mad when he find out that his name was actually voted #11 in TheTopTens.com for "Best names for dogs"! It's kinda hilarious, don't you think?

Max is a lovely name, because my mother had a dog called Max, and it makes the dog sound happy and playful, which you always want in your dogs name, I think that it is just truly a brilliant name, and I would recommend it to anyone with a boy dog. PS: I wish I could call my dog Max, I would love to.

What an awesome name I have a German shepherd named MAX and Max is a great name for a dog I LOVE IT!

I had a dog named max he died on September, 24, 2016.He was always happy. I love the name Max

Snoopy is such a cute and awesome name for a dog. Its like one of the most popular. Good grief!

13 Bob

Bob is by far the most sensible name on this list. It is short, sounds funny, and is just plain awesome. Heck, it's a good name for a BABY!

Bob is the name of my dog... My family fought me but they all love the name... Just gets awkward when you meet someone with the same name as your dog lol

What else would you name anything - Fireball1066

Bob is a great name. Not sure why people think it's an odd name for a dog.

Nigel is a great name, and it sounds like a competent banker type, so you always feel confident that your dog will know how to handle any important mergers or acquisition deals.

I LOVE Nigel it is adorable who wouldn't like his name but everybody has different opinions.
