Pitbulls are a really special breed. They have a lot of features that set them apart from other dogs, from their adorable faces to that utterly loyal and devoted personality. And you can use these cool characteristics to come up with truly unique Pitbull names. Today I’ll share a load of themed names lists, along with clever tricks for picking the perfect name for your active, intelligent Pitbull puppy’s personality.
- Tips for creating your own unique ideas
- Traditional names for girls and boys
- Names by nose and coat color
- Awesome ideas for rough tough pups
There are several types of Pitbull breeds, including the American Pitbull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Mini Staffordshire Bull Terrier and even the English Bull Terrier. The names I am going to share today are a perfect fit for any of these loyal companions.
Start by listing the things you love about the breed. Jot down any word you think of, don’t try to edit your thought process as you go along or inhibit that creative flow. Think of words that describe them and then put any which sound like good Pitbull names into a list. Alternatively think of a theme that appeals to you. A fan of hotrods, bikes or trucks? Use that theme as a platform to spring onwards to inspired and totally unique names.
What about the ocean, rivers and sea creatures? The underwater world can be a great place to brainstorm from:
Countries, cities and states can also be a really inspired way to name your puppy. So you can choose places you’ve been or locations you’d love to see. You can honor your family’s heritage, or simply give a nod to somewhere special.
Once you’ve got your shortlist, share it with your family and friends. Pin it to the fridge door, and each day strike through your least favorite. Or let family members take it in turns to do the same. You’ll soon shrink the list down to the perfect option.
Female Pitbull Names
If you want a human name for your dog then take a look at the girl and boy names here. We have included some popular names, but also some slightly less common Pitbull girl names. Ones that are more likely to make a statement for you and your gorgeous pup:
Male Pitbull Names
Whether you are looking for unique Pitbull names for males or strong male dog names for Pitbulls. There are some great choices just in the world of human style names. Here are some of our top choices:

If you don’t want to give your Pitbull a traditionally male or female name, then thousands more options will instantly open themselves up for you. Because good names come in so many forms. From those related to their color to the way you want their temperament to be perceived.
Names for Blue Nose Pitbulls
When you are thinking up blue nose Pitbull names, you have a few color ranges to look at. Although blue nose Pitbull’s have blue in the name, they are really grey. Ranging from a pale to an almost charcoal tone. Here are some great grey Pitbull Names, that can work for your blue nose Pitbull. Along with some that celebrate the ‘blue’ in the name.

Your red Pitbull is likely to be fawn or orange in color. So you can choose anything from or associated with that color spectrum, if you would like.
White Pitbull Names
White dogs are simply stunning. With their pale fur and good looks, a white Pitbull deserves a name that reflects his glorious fur coat.
Names for Brindle Pitbulls
Brindle dogs are beautiful, and your wonderful Brindle Pitty is of course no exception. A brindle Pitbull can be a range of colors, all streaked into a base of brown or tan.

Cute Pitbull Names
We all know that Pitbulls are real cuties. But they have had a bit of a bad reputation. If you want your lovely little pup to keep getting those coos and cuddles as she grows, then giving her an equally adorable name can go a long way.
Unusual Names for Pitbulls
Let’s face it, every dog is special. Just like every owner. Your dog isn’t like all the others, and it can make it tricky to find the right name for her. Because you want it to be something different.
Tough Pitbull names

These are some great names! We have an all white red/blue cross who we’ve named Kodak. The name fits her personality so well, she definitely gives us plentiful “Kodak Moments”! (Think the old camera/film for taking pics) We love our pibble to death! I never in my life thought I’d own one, let alone even pet one, but I can’t imagine my life ever again without a pibble in it. The most affectionate, playful, lovable, and loyal dog I’ve ever encountered. Such a shame they have such a stigma around them still though. I tell people it’s how they are raised that will either bring out the violence or bring out the big, cuddly, affectionate side of them. They aren’t to be feared if they are treated right. Again, we LOVE our pibble Kodak and I’ll never have another breed of dog again!
Donal Trump says
I was thinking Kodak Black 🤷🏿♂️

David V says
I had a BEAUTIFUL, sweet blue nose pit bull that I rescued from the SPCA that I named GAIA. She was somewhat short and stocky, and all muscle, I called her my lil sausage, she was a beautiful blueish grey and white, just a great looking out bull. Originally the SPCA had given her the name sherly but I was not a big fan of that name and it didn’t fit get at all. After thinking for a while and getting some help from a few friends and coworkers, my coworkers wife suggested the name Gaia (pronounced guy-a) meaning mother earth. I fell in love with the name it was perfect. Unfortunately my neighbors did not like our dogs and they hated my Gaia, which I don’t know how anybody could have hated her, she was the sweetest, most loving, well behaved dog ever, but one day Gaia became very ill, I took her to the vet, and after running some test, it was discovered that she had been poisoned with rat poison. We had never used rat poison and it was nowhere to be found on our property, the only explanation was that the neighbors had poisoned her, but we had no actual proof or evidence. A couple days later one of my other dogs had come down with the same symptoms and after taking her to the vet, she too had been poisoned by rat poison as well, luckily we were able to get her to the vet in time and we were able to save her, unfortunately Gaia wasn’t so lucky. The poison had done to much damage and she had to be put down. That put bull was the live of my life, she was my little sausage, i loved her. But the name Gaia was perfect for her and if anyone is trying to figure out a name for their put bull might I suggest GAIA, it’s a beautiful name for a great breed of dog.
That’s so sad.
Omgbi had almost the exact same thing happen to me w mu 7 month old pitbull Tyson who was a rednose pitbull and the most gorgeous dog i and everyone who was lucky to see/meet him.m, we had ever seen.

Mauricio Vazquez says
I have been dealing with depression since I was a teenager. I am now 33. Recently I was blindsided by a break up with a woman I thought was the one. I practically adopted her kids and fell in love with them as a family as well as individuals. Then not long after I lost my job and a close family friend. This all happened within a matter of weeks of each other. One day a neighbor found a gorgeous, friendly, BIG brown pitbull. After some sleuthing we found out his “owners” just put him on the streets because he had a few indoor accidents. I kept him and found out he is only 9 MONTHS OLD. Anyway…he stayed with me and has helped me to push forward when I felt the weight of the world was crushing me. For this reason I named him after the king of the Greek Titans, Atlas, who was destined to hold the weight of the world on his shoulders. He is amazing and I love the big lug.
Pippa Mattinson says
Glad your dog has helped you 🙂

I’m picking up my beautiful baby on Wednesday, He’s white and Brown with an A imprinted on the side of him and the runt of his litter. I’m having such a hard time. Leaning towards A & B names. Please help
Donna Caley-Rustenholtz says
I have a 10 week male pit puppy from a litter we had. He was a miracle puppy as he was born almost 10 Hours after his 5 brothers and 4 sisters. So he is the runt but he really is not much smaller than thw other puppies. He os black with a dew white toes, a white stripe on his nexk and chest and a partial white collar just above his
I want a name that reflects the miracle he is.
First, I am stating the obvious name of Miracle (but that may be too cheesy), but then I thought of Phoenix, as in the mythological phoenix bird that burned itself to death on a funeral pyre, then rose from the ashes to live again. Your pup as already fought a good strong battle and has lived. Plus I think Phoenix has a nice strong sound to it and it is easy to say, and rarely misunderstood.
Nyla is a gorgeous name
Anissa Bianski says
We have 7 year old female pit mix named Baya!!❤️

Anissa Bianski says

Kendra G says
Just saved a black pit with white boots. Trying to figure out a name for her. Thinking about Vega… what do y’all think?
Why dont you call your black pit with white boots “boots”
Since she has boots like Go Go boots, Why not Go Go or Gigi?
My neighbor gave me her pit puppy because she couldn’t take care of her, she’s pure white so I decided to give her sexy name because she’s so fabulous I named her MONROE, idk how I came up with it, it just hit me when I saw her

I rescued a Gotti Pitbull, half white half grey face. Hes huge but the biggest sweetheart ever. Doesn’t bark, just cuddles and is so friendly with other dogs.. and he kinda looks a lil dopey lol. Everyone says he looks like hes the happiest dog..look hes smiling! I don’t like the name that came with him, but hes 4 yrs. old and listens to it. Do I keep the name or can I change it.. and if so, what would I change it to? Open for suggestions!
Melinda Allen says
Ash would be a good name
Avalanche would be another possible good name.
If the name he has feels like it fits then keep it, if you feel it doesn’t fit his personality or characteristics then there is no harm in changing it I have a pit bull that is 15 years old so yours still has half of its life up to 2/3 rds more time. I thinks ok to change it if you like.
Bacardi or Rum

A few weeks ago I lost my sweet Pit girl, Cleo, to her second series of Grand Mal seizures due to a fatal reaction to Frontline flea treatment at the age of 3yrs old. She was a white coated Pit w/very unique tan markings. She was my everything. When I held her at 4wks old I knew she was the “queen” of my heart and soul and therefore became Cleopatra Sophia. I loved the name Sophia, always, but was drawn to the mystery of her blue eyes and they reminded me precious jewels…being fascinated with Egyptian history and culture, Cleopatra seemed just a natural fit for such a beautiful queen!
Just wanted to share her name with you…maybe one or the other will resonate with you?
Metta Barden says

Getting a male pitbull/American bull dog mix. He definitely favors his pitbull side most. Struggling to come up with the perfect name. He is white with a dark brown ring around both eyes and a caramel ring around both dark rings. Helllp meeee. The only name I’ve thought of so far that I like and “fits” is Twix
I don’t know if this would fit your pup, but I like the name Leo
I am trying to decide on a name for my puppy. He is dark blue almost black.

I am getting a gray/white pit male puppy. The owner says he was meant to be mine. I am so excited. I’m thinking of Brody for his name, although I don’t know his personality yet. But I love that name. What do you think?
Brody is a great name Kelly 🙂
I love that name, I had a Brody once and he was my best bestest best buddy! That name is a strong yet playful loving name. I recommend it ❤️
I’m a huge X-Men fan. My Pitts have character names. My red head is Rogue, and my albino is Gambit.
Brilliant choices 🙂
