605 Unique Names For Female Dogs

Your dog is unique and wonderful and no one can blame you for wanting a name that befits her personality. If you're looking for a unique name for your new female dog, think outside the box. You can look beyond the normal baby books for inspiration for your pup's name.

Creative ways to give your dog a unique female name.

Sometimes the hardest thing about having a new puppy is choosing the right name. Unless you're going to register her, there are no "rules" for her new identity, but there are some useful guidelines to follow for her benefit and yours.

  • Keep her name simple — a syllable or two — so you won't trip over your tongue when it's time to call her to you. She'll also recognize it quickly, making it easier for her to respond.
  • When you choose her name, take care that it doesn't rhyme with common words or commands; for example, "Kit" is very close to "sit," so instead of coming to you at what sounds like her name, your dog may take a seat. As well, if there's a human "Zoe" in the house, both her and your dog will be wondering why you're calling.
  • Finally, don't name your dog anything you'd be embarrassed to call out in public.

Give your female dog an athletic name!

Your dog may be your running, hiking or boating companion, able to keep up with your athletic ways. Naming her after one of the great female athletes can tap into her active personality. Wilma Rudolph was an Olympic trailblazer, the first to win three gold medals in track and field. Consider "Pica" for Picabo Street, another Olympian; she made her mark on the ski slopes. Cammi, Yani, Olga, Marta, Dara, Mia and Babe are other top female athletes, according to the Bleacher Report.

Discover feminine female dogs names with your favorite beauty brands.

Perhaps your girl is more peaceful, or known for her beauty and refinement. Consider looking to nature for inspiration. Daisy, Jasmine, Lily and Lotus are delicate, feminine possibilities. If flowers aren't your thing, consider looking beyond the U.S. for beautiful labels. In Armenian, "Siran" is beautiful, in Greek, "Calla" or "Calli" is the most beautiful, and "Kumi" is rarely seen beauty in Japanese. Other pretty names for a pretty dog include Inga, Adah and Lana.

Find inspiration for female dogs names with your favorite celebrities.

Plenty of women have made their mark on the world, including some with some unique names. If you love fashion, consider "Coco" for Coco Chanel. Brigitte Bardot was not only a beautiful actress, but a tireless animal rights activist. Mata Hari was a spy and an exotic dancer, while Maya Angelou was a great poet and writer.

Other ways to choose a unique female name for your dog.

You may want to take a few days to get to know your dog and get a greater understanding of her personality and work from there. If she's a sweet little thing, she would be "Miette" in French. Another option is to work your way through the alphabet, choosing a name for every letter and trying it on for size. Is she an Audrey for A, or an Edna for E? A little time getting to know your dog will help you figure out the name that fits her to a T — perhaps a Tia.
