The Trials And Tribulations Of Naming A Dog

One of the toughest things to do when you bring a new puppy into your home, is finding the name that works. Max is the number one name for male dogs and Bella reigns supreme for female dogs. It isn't always easy but with some creativity and persistence, the right name comes in an instant. Getting to that point isn't always easy so here are some websites that may make it a little easier.

Dog Name Websites

This is a good website because in addition to giving great tips for giving your dog the right name, it also has a dog name finder.
Next Day Pets
This is a comprehensive site for dog owners. Not only does it have a great resource for names, it will help prospective dog owners find a matching puppy through their puppy profile.
Pet Names World
This website features names for all types of pets. It's categorized well and shows the origin of the pet name. It's a division of Nickelodeon so the design is geared towards children and families. Still, it's a very effective and creative one to consider.

This is a simple database where you search by category and sex of the dog. I like it for its simplicity.

iPhone Apps

Pet Names +
This free iPhone app offers around 3,000 pet names for any pet imaginable.
5000 Pet Names Free
This has a huge selection of names and is known for its search capabilities. The fact that it's free, it can't be beat.
Dog Name Generator Elite
This paid app ($.99) is cool because it's made for the iPhone and iPad. It's a bargain to me because it gives you great pictures of puppies as well which helps pass the time while you are searching for that perfect name.
