White Dog Names
- Polar Bear
We named our Pry Bridgette. She was a pet therapy dog and lived until she was 13. She was followed up by a Golden Pyr we named Brutus. Also a pet therapy dog. Lived until 9. Both super dogs. Because of our age my husband and I decided to downsize. Now have a 2 year old Norwegian Elk hound named Eli. He is a fun dog but my first love remains with the Pyr. All of you who are getting puppies, I am so jealous. Enjoy your fluff balls. They are the greatest.
My rescue Pyr is Gabe or Gabriel, the Angel!!! Love him very much!
We named our pyrenees Indy. My daughter named him after Indiana Jones because the character was smart, adventurous and good looking 🙂
GETTING ONE TOMORROW… I LIKE CHLOE, BUT WILL DECIDE WHEN
I MEET HER. CAN’T WAIT
My beautiful girl is named Noelle.
It’s related to the angels appearing to the shepherds tending their sheep. “the first Noel”. Always loved pics of Great Pyrenees and lambs or goats… so cute!
She is so sweet and cuddly.
We have a Noelle also!
Getting my GP next weekend but meeting her tomorrow… so excited! I think I want to call her Xena (warrior princess)
Melissa Ingram says
My niece wanted two to watch over us and the goats and chickens. We got them Monday and are having a hard time naming them. I like Daisy, Sandy, Ghost, Kit, and a few others. They are both girls and we love them already.
My Pyr is 3 years old, the best dog ever!! I named him Samson.
Paul Kushner says
Mine Put name was Samson as well.. Wonderful dog he was.. He pass away few years ago.. Someday I’ll get another one..
We are getting our pry puppy next week! We are thrilled.His rescue name is Duncan. We haven’t decided if we will change it or keep it. I did see some names here that I really like!
Our 4-year-old Pyr’s name is Guinness. He’s awesome!
My pyr will be Hugo I think it sounds majestic and Huey or Hugh for short 🙂
My great pyr’s name is Swaggy
I have 10yr old pyr mix named Barney. We just kept saying names until He responded. So he told us his name.
Love all the names. We have a rescued Great Pyr, Golden, and German Shepard mix. But, he looks like a full bred pyr. We live on the lake, so we named him Moses … big enough to part the water!
Lynette Sue Ashman says
We rescued our girl. She is Pyr mix with golden, still mostly white fluff with a couple small caramel spots. She had been through a lot as a pup we were told and was already named Chloe by someone else so we kept that name. She is a Chloe but my son nicknamed her Fuzzy because, well, their fur is everywhere and makes the whole house fuzzy! LOL! Best dog ever!
Just got our 2 Great Pyrenees 2 days ago. Best dogs ever. They are only 6 weeks old. One is 18 pds, the other is 16 and they are full brothers. The 16 pounder is named Snowball and the 18 pounder is named Polar Bear. We call them Snow and Bear for short. They are going to be guardian dogs for our sheep.

I have a male Great Pyr I named him Jupiter. He has a wife, a Bernese Mountain Dog named Little Bear. They have four sons named: Noah, Luke, Titan, and Hero. They work as comfort therapy dogs
Sally A Elliott says
I have a rescue that came as Cleo. I’m leaning towards Mabel or Poppy. It’s hard to decide. Harder than naming a baby!
we have a female ball of pyrenee and named her Abilene (Abby) she was a rescue and was born in abilene texas and now lives in vermont she loves the snow and the lake! if your pyrenee likes water be sure to bring them to a lake or an ocean or a pond!
Cristian Perez says
i ended up calling my great pyr Magnus which I think he’ll grow into very well. the follow up if not Magnus was Brutus which I also like.
Robynne Catheron says
I’m leaning toward Tennyson or Thoreau (Thor). I’ll know once I meet him tonight! He’s only a month old, so I have two more months to decide. He’s going to be a true LGD, and I think he needs a majestic name.
We have a brother and sister great pryanese 3 month olds. They are zeus and Athena. Full of energy. We love them both
Cheryl Ottaviani says
Just got our pup yesterday. Named him Yeti.
