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.
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.

Black and white beagles are very rare, they do occur but you are more likely to come across the pretty two toned Lemon Beagle
