Finding the best German Shepherd names for such an amazing dog can be a challenge. These cool canines are popular pets and working companions. Loyal, loving, strong and intelligent, you’ll want these personality traits to be reflected when you pick a name for your baby German Shepherd puppy.
- Unique names for German Shepherds
- Tradition girls and boys names
- Police and military based ideas
- German Shepherd names by color
- Names inspired by their personalities
Today we have hundreds of awesome German Shepherd names to inspire you. From the classic to the very unusual. You’ll find plenty of names that reflect the awesome power and intelligence of this loyal breed. And we also share our system for creating truly original names for German Shepherds, names that reflect your own unique family and lifestyle.
Unique German Shepherd Names
The main problem with lists of dog names, is that they are often not that unusual, and not often truly unique. And if they are unique to begin with, they don’t stay that way for long once they have been posted up on the internet. But don’t worry! We have a great technique for creating totally unique dog names. Names that are completely personal to you. And we are going to share that with you, today! We are also going to share our own lists of awesome names for GSDs. Names that reflect the history and origin of these wonderful dogs, and the amazing service that they have given to mankind
Choosing a puppy name can often be source of disagreement at what should be a happy time, so we’ll also give you some tips for shortlisting the best German Shepherd names that you find and picking the winner. Some of the most popular German Shepherd names right now are:
These are nice names. But perhaps you are looking for something a little different! A great way to pick an unusual name is to brainstorm a whole bunch of words that aren’t usually used as names. To do that, you’ll need to choose a theme, and build your word collection around that theme. Jotting words down quickly on a big sheet of paper is the best way to do this. Here’s an example of a quick brainstorming session around the theme “wilderness”. We can add those to our Wilderness Collection below!
Wilderness Themed Names
You can see that we don’t include all the words from our brainstorming sessions. Some of them are rejected when we start making shortlists. And we’ve added some extras to the list that came to mind as we compiled it. The main point of brainstorming is to get you started. And it works pretty well for that purpose.
You’ll notice there are a few place names sneaking into that list and that leads us to another very useful theme that is especially good for finding original German Shepherd names, and that’s place names
Place Names For German Shepherd Dogs
Place names can make awesome original dog names. We are going to use mainly cities in our place name themed collection. But you could use states or even geographical areas or entire countries countries instead. Think ‘Sahara’ or ‘Africa’.
You could brainstorm a collection of places you have visited and that may have happy memories for you. Or simply names that sound nice and have an interesting meaning. Many city names are very pretty. And some sound more masculine while others sound more feminine. In general, names ending with the letter A tend to have a softer more feminine feel to them.

What Makes A Good German Shepherd Dog Name?
The GSD is an extremely versatile breed that is a favored service dog, police dog, guard dog, or household pet. Easy to train, shepherds are incredibly loyal dogs that bond closely with their family. So it’s not surprising that many families like to choose a human name for their shepherd dog.
Human names for dogs can pay homage to a dear friend or family member or may remind family members of a much loved film or even a holiday destination. Good GSD names are ones that reflect the personality of your new friend, or some other attribute such as the color of their coat. Or, that have a special meaning for you and your family
Shepherds are most commonly associated with a long bicolor coat (solid tan, silver, red, or cream coat with black saddle, face, and leg markings). But they also come in solid colors like black, blue, gray, liver, sable, and white. You could brainstorm a collection of names around a color such as blue or gray. Think ‘sky’ or ‘mist’, or ‘storm’. We’ve made a couple of color themed lists for you below.
Originally bred for herding and guarding livestock, German Shepherds are known worldwide for their courage and strong protective instincts. And have a long history of serving in the armed forces and as watchdogs. We’ll look at some collections based on those roles in a moment. But first let’s share some classic names grouped into boy dog and girl dog themes. We’ve split up Shepherd names by gender in the following sections.
Classic Female Names
We think that powerful and independent women, both real and fictional, serve very well as an inspiration for your German Shepherd girl’s name! Female German Shepherd names can reflect your dog’s feminine looks and “pampered pooch” status. They may also reflect her strong female personality, if you prefer. Here is a list of names reminiscent of strong women that would perfectly complement your beautiful German Shepherd.
- Ella (short for Eleanor Roosevelt)
- Amelia (Amelia Earhart)
- Katniss (after the main character in The Hunger Games trilogy)
- Liz (short for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II)
- Hermione (Harry Potter)
- Nancy (Nancy Drew series)
- Xena (Xena the Warrior Princess)
- River (Dr. Who)
- Jackie (Kennedy)
- Cleo (Cleopatra of Egypt)
Flower Names For A Female German Shepherd Puppy
Flowers and plants can make great girl german shepherd names. Here are some to get you started
And if you’re looking for more unique female german shepherd names, look for less common flower names such as:
Inspiration for German shepherd female dog names can also from trees and shrubs, and from herbs and spices. Many of these work well for both male and female dogs.
Traditional Boys Names
Not only are there powerful women in history, but there are also plenty of courageous and heroic male figures. You have ample choice of German Shepherd boy names as you make your selection. Here is a list of male German Shepherd names that will help to convey your boy’s intelligence or strength.

A list of German Shepherd Dog names wouldn’t be complete without a few names from the GSD’s country of origin! Let’s look at some german people names for dogs.
Male German Dog Names
As its name suggests, the GSD breed was created in Germany way back in 1899. German male dog names can reflect your dog’s german heritage. Here are some German names and their meanings that may suit a male German Shepherd
- Adalard (“brave”)

- Hubbard (“bright mind”)
- Kaiser (“long haired”)

Female German Dog Names
German female dog names are often quite traditional and beautiful. Here are some German names and their meanings that may suit a female German Shepherd.
- Ada (“noble and serene”)
- Bathilda (“heroine”)

If German Shepherd dogs are the first breed you think of when a police dog or guard dog is mentioned. You might consider naming your GSD based on his bold personality.
Police Dog Names
As we mentioned previously, German Shepherds are commonly used as police dogs. When they’re part of a K-9 unit, GSD dogs need a name that’s easy to pronounce when the handler gives commands, but that also packs a little “oomph.” Besides, police dogs are hard workers and deserve a commanding name! Here are a few names we think would be suitable for police dogs or those who clearly have aspirations in that area!

We had to put my gorgeous 9 yr old long hair German Shepard to sleep on June 4,2020 because of degenerative myelopathy…we are retired & she was our heart…so obedient & completely devoted to us..we still see her around the pasture & in the house every day….we’ve had many shepards but Greta will always be the special ONE that you never get over. We miss her so much! Eventually we hope to get another GSD pup because they are such amazing dogs.

Amrit Kaur says
Hiya regarding your female gsd I would call it roxy I have a gsd male called Prince and I strongly recommend using a very powerful name and something that means something loving. I am getting another gsd puppy and will be naming it champion it is a loving name I am also considering the name diesel xx
We have 3 GSD’s. The male is Harley, mom is Sasha, pup girl is Ruby. Pup was born in northern Nevada next to the Ruby mountains.
Getting my new pup on February 1st. Want to stick with something German sounding. I have had a Ryker and a Kaiser. Any suggestions? I was leaning toward either Heinrich or Jaeger.
Hope you are enjoying your new pup, we have 3 dogs one is an imported male German shepherd named Idol. Thinking of getting a female shepherd that’s 9 weeks, stuck on strong female German names
Panzer, a German tank
Will be getting a GS male puppy in a few weeks. This litter requires the name to start with L. Any suggestions?
Amrit Kaur says
Hiya is it a female or male but I would personally call it rich for a female and Prince , champion , diesel or Kai for a male hope that helps
It is probably only their registered name that must start with an “L”….the call name can be whatever you want. My female GSD had to start with “M” so that was done in her registration but her call name was Tuula. Enjoy your new pup…lost my girl in May, still broken-hearted.
Leonardo is nice or Male is Sampson our solid white female is Sasha and we now have 3 pups we don’t know if we will keep the male or female, if girl Mischka of boy Bugsy
and i oop says

Liver or Lion. London or Lutz. Liger or Lever. Levi or Looney. Just brainstorming,

My long haired GS was called Cain it has taken me many years to get over his loss but today I finally took the plunge and have chosen another male long haired GS which I pick up in 7 weeks, I can’t wait and like Cain he will be highly trained in obedience and I also some limited search and rescue.

My lion sheperd puppy’s name is cookie…
What About Kailey (Kaylee) For a girl and Kaiden (Kayden) for a boy?
Our beautiful shepherd girl is named “Uschi”…the pet name for “Ursula”
It means little/ baby bear ( female)
..it still suits her at 5 y.o.?
P Sturgeon says
Our shepherd was named Gretchen. Her mother was Lady Cindy Ann and her father was Baron VanCler. So her registered name was Lady Gretchen VanCler.
Before Gretchen we had a small dog…part Spitz..and don’t know the rest. My husband named her “Deeogee” pronounced with the emphasis on th “o” so it sounded like Dee -OH – gee. Once when I took her to the vet and said her name, the receptionist sarcastically said, “I KNOW that! What is her name” I had to explain.
The last part about the woman “ I KNOW THAT, Whats the dogs name?!?”!!! Lol it had me laughing!!! I am going to name my dog “deeogee” cuz it’s such a cute name!!
My brother called his dog Deefer. I mulled it over. Deefer, I said. That’s nice. Where did it come from? He said, “D – for dog, Deefer”.
“That’s funny”, I said, but the name stuck.
We are getting a make GSD from southafrica today, i want a good seetname for him , a name short and easy to pronounce.the previous dog we had was not active
My working line German Shepherd service dog is named Krueger. Why? He came into my life right before Halloween and he just “looks” like a Krueger.
We just adopted a 1 year old full blooded beautiful GS. She wasn’t treated well. Her given name is Luna but due to the traumatic past we would like To change it. I would like something that means something special to us. We have a Maddie (lab), Lochi (border collie/lab mix pronounced LOKI.. but stands for LOve CHIld), when we got Lochi we were actually looking to rescue a female but fell in love with our boy. We were going to name a girl Elsie (for L.C. Love child— since my new husband and I won’t have children together except for our pups)
But I’m not sure Elsie fits a German Shepard. Oh the decisions.
Elsa is a good German name for a female GS. It’s the diminutive of Elisabetha, or Elizabeth.
Irene Ralyea says
Elsie was the name of my super tough Russian grandfather’s dog. I would use Elsie again without hesitation or go for Alda.
My two GSDs names are Kilo & Koa (both females) I’ve had Hunter, Shelby, Cairo and Kobe
I have a female puppy and I don’t know what to name her. I have her parents kaydo and kali
Evie, Eva, Isla, Elise, Maya, poppy
We have a GSD named Sadie too. 7 years she’s been the love of my life!
For a female:
How about Kai?
Mine is a female, so Kaya isehst we picked

Pippa Mattinson says
Very sorry for your loss Marta
peter shuttleworth says
Our white shepherd who is nearly 13, is so beautiful, just been diagnosed with a tumour of spleen. It is a terrible loss you have experienced, we have been through
it on 3 occasions and does not get any easier.
Our only advise is to get another GSD and in time you will love the new boy/girl
Just as much.
Sorry for your loss. Our Ivy passed on the 21st. She was 12. She was a WGSD.
We lost ours October 25. I understand your loss and share in your tears and pain.
We will welcome our new GSD puppy in December.
Blessings to you.

Harish, What about calling your GSD Prince if it’s a male, or Princess if it’s a girl

Called my girl Elsa , she was a long coat Black and Tan looked like a lion , ,loved her sooooo much ,, miss her
We just rescued a 10 month old female long haired gsd. ❤️ Her name was Priscilla but we changed it to Luna. The police had to break down the door and confiscate her because her owner was deceased inside…carted her off to the shelter where she was attacked by another dog. This poor girl has had a rough couple of weeks, but we are giving her tons of love and helping her mend.
We lost our male GSD, Faust to cancer two days ago. We have a female named Nadia.
Angie & Ron says
So sorry for your loss. We just put our Lily down on April 17th. Rare skin cancer. I’d have to say this has been harder than when I lost my mom. Those furry kids are so special. Hoping to get another GSD real soon. Take care.
Omgosh I’m so terribly sorry. ?
My 2 German shepherds names are ash and dash! Their twins! ?
We just got our GS mix and named her Aja (asia)
My German Shepherd will be One year June and her name is Coco.She is gorgeous that’s why I gave her that name.
My German Shepherds name was Remington
He past away in December 2017.
I said I would never get another then I rescued a Malinois German shepherd mix named Swipe which I want to change he is black mostly with brindle legs. He is 1 year and seven months. Any suggestions
Well i think if he has mostly a black coat then possibly Gunner, rex or loki those sound ok?
How about Stormy? Sounds strong.
I believe Shadow would be an adorable name for a black German Shepherd. It’s very common but also very fit and cute.
What about Luger?
You’d be replacing a Remington with a Luger.
I add a male named Baus, pronounced “Boss” but with a German spelling twist.
My dogs name is Chimera “Chim” for short
We lost our baby girl 5 weeks ago. She was just 10.4 years. Swore I would be waiting at least a year for another. Yea, right!!! We loved our HeidiHo with all our hearts. She was the greatest dog ever ( to us), now the whole in our hearts needs to be filled. We will get brother and sister next time. Love the names ALL of you came up with. Has anyone ever gotten 2 litter mates? Is that recommended?
Yes, it is so much fun watching them grow up together BUT the one down size they both get old at the same time. I just lost one in Sept at just over 12 yrs old & now her sister will b 13 on July 6th, IF she lasts that long. Her health is really going downhill the last couple of months?The ONLY pain my babies ever caused is when they pass over!
Cynthia L Vandeven says
yes two is easier than one, they keep each other company

aaron kramer says
I have 4 male german shepherds and their names are Baron,Blitz,Uzi and faust….
May I ask you how long did you wait in between getting the 4 or did you get them all at 1 time? I really want another one so bad but the one I have now is super attatched to me and already very, very protective of me and I’m just afraid that he’ll think I don’t love him as much anymore and maybe he’ll harm the new puppy out of jealousy, my big guy is only 2.
I had a very loyal and loving boy who was always waiting for me to come home and my shadow when I was. I got worried he might be lonely through the day when I was at work and got him a female, he nipped her when she first came home but after that they loved each other greatly and he would let her eat first, always come in from outside and give her a lick and they would sleep together with paws touching. I made sure they both knew they were loved and got equal me time. It’s easy to pay both at once making them both feel loved. My boy died last year and my girl is now sad without him and I will now be getting her another puppy for companionship.
Get a girl and they will get along but usually socializing German Shepard is real important when owing 2 please try to get them at once next time so they can learn to get along. I brought 2 The same time and they still fight but live each other dearly so I’m hoping they can stay together forever and it’s crazy Because I have 3 boys and they both still protect me always
I had a white had, called Carla. When she was 5 I got a black Belgium shepherd, Carla passed at 15. Tannis my black girl, pinned so much she stripped her own fur. So I got her a play mate, again when she was 5. A boy called Taren (means tractor)., he is a sable. Tannis is very poorly and vets says she doesn’t have long, she is nearly 10. She has major health issues and recently had her spleen and a tumour the size of a football removed. On saturday we are collecting a new puppy, so that when Tannis does pass, Taren won’t be on his own when she is gone. Strangely enough he is nearly 5.
I have 7 German Shepherds, 4 females and 3 males.
And have a new baby that was born today, her name is Harper.
I love Baron – my kids had a book called “Baron and Fluffy” – based on her childhood pets, a GSD and his best friend, a duck! ?

My name that I choose is Nevaeh said like kneeva it’s heaven backwards, and I love it!
Pretty and meaningful name. ????
My past white GSD I gave her “call ” name Neva , meaning ” white as snow”.
I just got my white GSD today and we will be calling her Neva .❤️
Tiffany Nicole Reed says
Neveah is my sisters name but said differently.
Blade is a really cool name also
I helped my BFF name her GSD “STEELE” after the Pittsburgh Steelers, her favorite team. Thus far he has lived up to his name, he’s rough, tough and his bark alone will make you shiver. Protects the fam like a body guard.

Another great one would be Wuotanaz (Wotanaz) or Wuotan (Wotan) for short, Wuotanaz is one of many names for the North Germanic God “Odin”, and Wuotanaz is a very old name for him, coming from pre-christianity Germania.
