What are some good Corgi names?
That’s a question you’ll be asking yourself if you’re about to welcome a Corgi puppy into your household.
Well, if you’re looking for inspiration for some good Corgi names, you’ve come to the right place!
In this article, we’re going to discuss how to choose some great Corgi names.
We’ll also talk about the importance of choosing the right name for your Corgi puppy.
Whether you’re looking for cute girl Corgi names, cool Corgi names, or Pembroke Welsh Corgi names!
You’re sure to find something to inspire you here!
Let’s take a look at why choosing the right Corgi name’s so important.
Why choosing the right name for your Corgi matters so much
The cheeky Corgi is undoubtedly cute and is full of personality.
And we’re sure that’s why the Queen loves the breed so much!
But although they may look similar, each Corgi has his or her own individual character.
You want to choose a name for your pup that reflects this.
Naming a puppy is something of a guessing game however.
You never know whether he’ll grow into a shrinking violet or a cheeky extrovert.
But you do know the sex of your pup, and what color he will be when he’s fully-grown.
You also know your pup’s heritage, and their Royal connection too!
Short names are best
When looking through lists of Corgi names, try to choose something short.
Ideally you want to pick a name that has just one or two syllables.
The reason for this is that long, complicated names are very difficult for your puppy to learn and remember.
Of course, if you do come across a long Corgi name you can always give it a short nickname.
So, let’s get started and look at some cool dog names that might be perfect for your Corgi!
Sources of inspiration for Corgi names
Inspiration for Corgi names can come from many sources.
You might decide to name your pet after the place you bought him from.
The city or state where you live, or your favorite vacation destination.
Perhaps you have a school teacher who has a great name that would look cool on a Corgi!
Maybe you’re a big fan of a TV show with a name that would suit your pup.
And of course if you have a Corgi mix puppy you can take inspiration from even more places!
So what do you do if you find two Corgi names that you really love and you can’t decide between them?
Well, why not combine both names to create your very own unique Corgi name!

Things to remember when choosing the best Corgi names
There are a few things to remember when choosing unique Corgi names.
Choose a name that’s nice and short, preferably with only one or two syllables.
If you do go for a longer name, pick one that you can shorten easily so that your puppy finds it easy to learn and remember.
Be sure that you don’t pick a name that sounds too similar to that of one of his new companions.
Bear in mind that there must be hundreds of Corgis called “Queenie!”
If possible, try to choose a unique dog name or one that’s unusual.
Think about the training commands that you’re going to teach your puppy, and choose a name that can’t confused with one of them.
For example, if you’re going to use “Stay” to tell your Corgi to sit and wait, don’t call him “Ray!”
It could cause your poor pup no end of confusion if he comes bounding up to you instead of waiting!
Corgi names – summary
Choosing a great name for your new Corgi puppy is extremely important.
For a start, the name must be one that you will always love!
Be wary of picking a name that’s funny or an “in joke” but could lose its meaning over time.
Always pick a Corgi name that is easy for your puppy to learn and remember.
Be sure that the name you choose doesn’t sound too much like a training command or like the name of one of your other pets.

I’m getting a Corgi mix possibly. And I’m thinking about naming her tater tot as I love tater tots and she looks like a tater tot
Very fitting since Corgies are nicknamed with terms like “potato” or “bread loaf.”

We named our Pembroke Corgi Maisie because we wanted to give her a Welsh name, but after a year of so we were very sorry we hadn’t named her Fanny — let’s face it, Corgi’s have the cutest butts!

I have a rescue Corgi, she is so sweet and smart. THe guy who helped me rescue her, said she was a Jack Russell, so I called her Jackie.

I have wanted a pembroke for a long time. I have also admired the queen for most of my life. My current pet is Bobby boy, so I am hoping to find a little girl, who will be named Lizzie.
Named our Pembroke girl Guinevere (Gwen/Gwennie for short) since Pembrokeshire is believed to be the place of origin for Arthurian legends.
I have three corgis named Spencer, SuzieQ and Sadie. Sally and Sassy have went to doggie heaven.
