Once you have visited a litter of cute beagle puppies, you’ll be keen to pick a name for your new friend. Take your time, there’s no hurry to have a name ready on the day you bring your puppy home, they can just be ‘Puppy’ for a day or two if necessary. From the tips of their long ears to the depths of their dark eyes, every new Beagle puppy is an adorable companion. We have lists of names that reflect your lovable Beagle’s hunting origins, color or markings, and names that are perfect for your pup’s playful personality.
To get a truly original name you really need to step outside the box and think of words that are not traditionally used for naming animals. That’s where our themed collection system comes in.
Unique Beagle Names
The best way to find a name that no-one else is using, is to brainstorm a word search around a theme. For that you’ll need an old fashioned pen and a big piece of plain paper!
Pick a theme that means something personal to you and write it down in the center of your page. It could be a sport, a hobby, something musical perhaps, or a place you have been to. The words don’t have to be names in the traditional sense. In fact if the are, they are probably not unique! You are looking for words that have a nice ring to them
If gardening is your hobby, you might add ‘trug’, ‘flower’, and some favorite flower names. If you love to hike off the beaten trail you’ll maybe add ‘meadow’, ‘willow’ and ‘breeze’. Maybe you love messing about with vehicles, then ‘diesel’, ‘axle’ and ‘buick’ might make it onto your sheet.
Think of as many words as you can that are associated with that theme and scatter them around the page. Don’t stop to judge each word or try to rate them as good Beagle names. Just get them out of your head and onto paper.
Place Names For Beagles
Place names can be a great source of inspiration when looking for unique names for Beagles. Many place names are very pretty and roll nicely off the tongue. You can build a collection of place names around your own memories. Places you have been and loved. Or around some attribute of your dog’s breed. Beagles originate in England so you could use some old English town names. Here are some examples that might suit your baby beagle puppy.
- Fowey (pronounced Foy)
You can also use the Beagle’s original role as inspiration. Beagles are pack hounds originally bred for hunting hares. This practice is now illegal in the UK but there are still active Beagle packs hunting rabbits or drag hunting (following an artificial scent trail)
Hound Names For Beagles
Within the ancient hunting community in Britain there were and still are, a group of names that were traditionally used for working hounds. Some of them are both original and very appealing. Check out these examples:
Hunting Beagle Names
If traditional hound names don’t appeal, then here are some more general hunting themed names that work very well for Beagle puppies
Unusual Beagle Names
While not completely unique, these names are unusual and attractive names for Beagle puppies.
Beagle dog names from movies
Looking for beagle names from movies and television? Take a look at these famous Beagle names below.
- Lou (Cats and Dogs film)
- Porthos (Star Trek Enterprise)
- Shiloh (Film Shiloh)
- Buddy (Regarding Henry)
- Brains (Inspector Gadget)
- Shoeshine (Underdog movie)
- Gromit (Wallace & Gromit)
- Snoopy (Peanuts cartoon)
Beagle Colors can be a good source of inspiration. Most Beagles are Tri-color, that’s patches of black and tan on a white background. But within that broad description there is a tremendous range of colors in the breed. You can sometimes find beagles with only two colors rather than three. Black and white beagles are very rare, they do occur but you are more likely to come across the pretty two toned Lemon Beagle
Lemon Beagle Names
There’s no such thing as a truly white Beagle but many lemon Beagle puppies can look almost white when they are born. Those lemony brown patches will develop as your puppy grows up.
If you are lucky enough to own a distinctive lemon beagle puppy, you might like to pick a name that reflects their description!

Cool Beagle names
Best Beagle names
You’ll want your wonderful new friend to have the best possible name. Not just cool, but convenient too. When choosing a beagle name, you want something that’s easy for you to call. Choosing a funny name can work well, but remember you are going to have to live with it for many years! So before you make your final choice, think how you will feel about shouting this name out in public, or writing it down on your pet’s vaccination certificate.
Once you have gathered some collections together, it’s time to make a shortlist of your personal top Beagle names. Write them down on a piece of paper and pin them to your kitchen notice board.
Picking the winner isn’t easy, but if you leave the list up in a prominent place for a few days you’ll probably find one starts to pop out at you. After the first couple of days, try crossing out the one you like the least. You can repeat this each day until you are left with the winner!

Beagle Lover says
My beagle was a rescue and had had many homes before us, so he came with the name Yahoo and we decided to keep it for him. At first, I didn’t like it, but it turned out to be the perfect name. I’d like to see Yahoo added to the list of funny names because it sure is fun to say
I can’t believe nobody goes for Sméagol the beagle. Or Jeremy Beagle (not sure if this is a UK site or not but Jeremy Beadle was a well loved 80s/90s tv and radio presenter).
We’re thinking of getting a beagle as we’ve heard they’re great with cats and those are the names we have so far.
**not necessarily expecting the cats to be so happy about him**
amazing names lol

I have been hoping to find someone has named their Beagle “Darwin” for years, but I have yet to see it. It seems so obvious to me. Darwin’s ship was named the Beagle so why wouldn’t you name your Beagle “Darwin”?????
Mine is Darwin. Exactly for that reason!!!

I really wish I could have a beagle but it is to expensive for me
Hunter Wood says
Lisa: I wish I knew enough about you that I could contribute to your cost of having one. Just for the comfort of the beagle. All dogs are expensive. They will take your heart away from you and likely will give you more love than you deserve. Because you will be their entire world, and they, sadly, too often, will only be a small part of yours. The dogs, like children, don’t deserve to be brought into the world and then be mistreated or not loved.
Amen to that Hunter. This past February I lost my precious furbaby Zena. She lived to 14 years and nine months. Now I’m on the look for another female. If someone is not interested in caring and loving a dog like you would a child, they then don’t get one. Dogs are incredible!
I totally agree with you. if you can’t love and care for your furbaby like a child then do not get one, Our beagle went to be with our Lord God almost a year ago, It has been a very hard year he was 12 yrs old. His name was Odie
My Huckleberry passed on 07/29/2022 at the young age of 15/16 (Rescue). Miss my silly pretty puppy baby boys sooooo much! Best dog ever. I Pray he is reincarnated and comes back to me as another baby rescue! Beagle Love Forever❤️🙏🐶
I have a dog named Harley and love her to death.Plus she’s really warm at night
I have a 3 year old rescue beagle named Jax. Short for Jaximus. Full name…Jaximus Crucius. He’s my little shadow and constant companion. I refer to him as my “familiar”, my little protector.

Charles Wilcox says
I just got a little Teacup Female Chihuahua January 27th, 2019, she is 12 weeks old, she is a little firecracker; chases her little yellow ball around the kitchen, and yips/barks when trying to get my attention when I’m in my back office room on the computer checking emails and EBAY. I have five Chihuahua’s, their great little companion’s, I have a Spotty next to the oldest one, Annie and Danny I found together, Be be is the oldest, about 8 or 9 years old, came from Oakland, CA to the Human Society here in Spokane on the north side of town, she’s a great dog too, a little shy when I first got her but now very loving and fun. Archie is the runt of the family, he’s a mixture, half pom and half Chihuahua. Now that I have one more little one, suppose to be a Teacup and is a female Chihuahua, I’m wondering about what name her, what her name might become? She’s all white except has a tan spot on her mid way body, her forehead, ears are dark tan too, she almost reminds me of Spotty, he’s also white with a tan spot on his rear besides he’s head has tan color on it too! I’m thinking of naming the little teacup female I just got either Mollie, Abbie, or Lucie, trying to follow Danny, Annie, Archie, Spotty, and Archie somewhat with similar names. What do all of you think would be a great name for the Teacup which I think might be more than 3 lb’s when fully grown, of course I didn’t get to see the parents, were told though they both were rather small in size! I bought the puppy from a fella that he bought the dog for his 6-7 year old daughter which she rather quickly lost interest in the dog. Please help me find a good name for her! Thank you!
How about Ariel or Acie or maybe Abbie?
I wanted to name my toy plushie beagle, I bought it a few minutes ago, and I did not know what to name it, soo went here, but I could not find the perfect one, so I thought by myself, since it was a beagle, I named it beagie!
Growing up in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill (Jewish Community) we had a beagle named Bagel. There was a loser part of our street that also had a Bagel, beagle. And if course there was another beagle on the street names Lox, short for Nova Lox. Only thing missing was the cream cheese.
I current have a beagle, she’s 12, named Peanut, she’s tiny. I usually call her the Axis of Evil, you know garbage raider.

Carolyn Green says
My beagle just passed away on July 15, her name was Shannon O’Beans. A happy name.
H Lee says
I hope you loved her enough that she knew it. They know. You can scold, and that can upset them to the point that they will come begging forgiveness, and you can tell that they must be picked up and loved.
I have a six year old beagle named rollie because beagles love to rollick and they are jolly pooches.

My boyfriend bought me a beagle to help with my PTSD. As soon as we saw him we need him copper, after copper and rod off fox and the hound. We will soon be getting him a girlfriend… looking for a good name to go with Copper… and suggestions
Funny, I actually have a female beagle named Penny… would that work? Or maybe Gold? I have a friend with that last name, which I call her by.

Maggie is the name of my beagle. And I’ve head her since I was 7. And now I`m 18. I love her to death.
Thats cool l got a female for my dad who will be 84 we’ve had beagles all my life he named her maggie2 he says she is the best hes ever owned . This so true cause she stays in the house thats never happened as far as i can remember, anyway great you have a maggie love her unconditionally and she will return the love.
Hunter Wood says
Cook her some chicken livers and gizzards, boil until the livers start falling apart and then add rice and cook until rice is soft, if too watery add more rice and cook until soft. It is cheaper than do food and Maggie will love it. .
I have 6 beautiful beagles. There names are Cowboy, Ranger, Scoot, Barney, Tater, and pocket beagle, Cricket. One other that died, his name was Hot Shot. We absolutely love the breed. I can’t imagine not having a beagle.
Hunter Wood says
Beagles are just pure love. For them to get some of that love from you do this: Cook her some chicken livers and gizzards, boil until the livers start falling apart and then add rice and cook until rice is soft, if too watery add more rice and cook until soft. It is cheaper than dog food also
We just lost our Beagle in January named, Birdie. We adopted her at the shelter when she was older, right after the bird landed on Bernie Sanders podium. She was Bird most of the time and we would sing “Surfin Bird” by the Trashmen and she loved it LOL
I am so sorry for the loss of your precious dog! We adopted a rescue baby named Birdie, also! We never changed her name when we adopted her, we tried out a bunch of names, but nothing fit…so she is Birdie. She is a sweet angel that we found out was abused before. This was the 1st time we adopted a rescue and it breaks my heart to think of what she went through before we got her. She will never feel those things again! I will forever be a rescue Momma. Rebecca, may your wonderful memories of Birdie help ease the pain of her loss. Until you meet again…
