Looking for the best Bichon Frise names? Never fear, we’re here for you.
Choosing the perfect name for your Bichon Frise pup should be high on your list of priorities when you get a new dog.

The right name is more than just cute. It can help with your dog’s training, too. And if it’s the wrong name, it can cause problems.
Things to consider while choosing Bichon Frise names
Look at names objectively, for any ways they could confuse your pup.
For example, naming your dog something with “no” in it (Noel, Noah) might make it harder for your dog to develop the right associations with the name.
And naming a dog Trey might lead to confusion with the command “stay.”
Picking a name with a crisp consonant to help a puppy distinguish the word from noise in the area.
Ending the name in a long “e”, or a short “a” can also be helpful.
To avoid confusion, don’t name your pets with similar names.
You may also wish to pick a short name that’s easy for your puppy to learn, and which gets her attention quickly.
If not, a nickname may be helpful.
Are you attracted to silly names? That’s great, but calling out to a dog that’s just run down the street might be embarrassing if you pick something that’s too crazy or obscene.
But don’t despair!
It’s easy to pick good names for Bichon Frise dogs that suit your dog and create good associations for you both.
