Finding awesome Maltipoo names for your new Maltipoo pup can feel like quite a challenge sometimes!
After all, you and your new puppy are still in the “getting to know you phase” but yet you feel all this pressure to pick a name right away.
We hope to take the pressure off and give you lots of food for thought (hopefully of the treat variety)!
Tips for naming your Maltipoo puppy
Steer clear of Maltipoo names that sound too similar to important commands you want your Maltipoo to learn.
This will help avoid extra confusion and frustration during training!
Selecting a less-common Maltipoo name is a good way to keep every dog at the dog park from running to you when you call your own dog!
If you are leaning towards longer Maltipoo names (three syllables or longer) see if there is a cool nickname you can use so you don’t wear yourself out calling your dog.
Some people might be super-flattered if you want to name your Maltipoo puppy after them….others, perhaps not so much.
Asking the person is the best policy here!
Choose a name you don’t mind saying out loud in public in mixed company.
There – that’s it for the naming tips. They also work for other cute Maltese mixes like the Malshipoo!
Now let’s get down to business and take a look at Maltipoo names in lots of different categories!
