Oh, and by the way, congratulations, new dog parent! We know how exciting it is to bring a new furry family member into your home.
Still, there is so much to do to get ready for your new four-legged friend. There’s the shopping, the supplies, the puppy-proofing, and the naming.
But hey, take the stress of naming your dog off of your list. We are here to help. Get ready to find the perfect L name for your perfect new pup!
Let’s get started!
Naming Your Puppy or Rescue Dog
Before we jump into our lovely list of L names for dogs, let’s talk about why naming your dog is so important.
While the act of naming your new furry friend should be super fun, it should also be taken somewhat seriously.
There are a few things you may want to consider before you choose a name for your dog. One of those things is the number of times you will be repeating it.
Hopefully, you and your dog will be spending a lot of time together. That means you will be repeating his name consistently for years.
Inside, outside, at the dog park, at the vet’s office, and on walks, this new name can quickly grow old.
Calling Pooper Bottoms in from the backyard before work while your neighbors are out and about can also be a bit embarrassing.
Something else to think about is your dog. How quickly do you want him to learn his name?
Most experts agree that with positive reinforcement and consistent training, a dog can learn his name in about a week.
Still, there are some names that could take a bit longer for your dog to learn. And believe it or not, it’s all in the syllables.
The easiest names for dogs to pick up on are names with two syllables. This means names like Bailey, Rover, or Carter are total winners.
Unfortunately, popular dog names with only one syllable like Max, or cute names with three or more syllables like Hippopotamus, may have your dog staring at you in confusion for a while.
Of course, you can always call your dog Hippo for short or Maxie for long.
With that being said, let’s dive into our huge list of totally awesome L names for dogs!
