Puppy Names For Girl Dogs

Picking a name for your new dog takes some thought.  To get you started, we put together a list of our top 50 puppy names for girl dogs.


What should you consider when picking a name?  First of all, it should be something you’ll like saying for a long time.  It needs to be short and easy for a dog to understand, but also something that won’t be confused with any commands.  (For example, "Faye" is short and sweet but sounds like "stay.")  Finally, many people look for names that reflect their dog’s personality.
