Think Of Your Dog’s Personality. Watch your dog for a few days and see if his personality suggests a name. Does he seem regal? Is she always the center of attention? How about "King" or "Star"?
A miniature poodle can be named 'Tater Tot' (due to the texture of their fur!) and a bulldog 'Butterball' (duh) But beyond looks, personality also plays a big role in naming your pet.
Choose a name that is not similar to a command you plan to teach your dog. It would be confusing to teach "Fletch" to fetch or "Shae" to stay.
The name should be one to two syllables long. Longer names can be confusing for your dog and a hassle for you to pronounce.
Vowel names change tone when you call for your dog. This is significant because dogs are much better at distinguishing frequency ranges than humans.
If you have more than one dog, make sure their names are dissimilar. They shouldn't be so close to each other that the dogs get confused
