32 Funny Dog Names For Your Goofball

By Allegra Ringo

Do you have a dog who is a doofus and/or a goofball? If you're not sure, take a look at them right now. Is their tongue hanging out? Do their eyes seem to go in two different directions? Are they running around, barking excitedly at nothing? You have a goofball on your hands.

In the case that you have a new goofball and need help naming them, I've put together some suggestions. Keep in mind that goofballs have unique naming needs. You can't give them a Shakespearean name or a name inspired by a mathematician. These dogs need a name that, like them, is uniquely goofy. Your best bet is a food name or an inanimate object name.
