What are some good white dog names?
You’ll be asking yourself that question if you’re planning on getting a white puppy any time soon.
We’ve put together an article that’s dedicated to those of you wanting to find a good name for your white dog.
Also, we’ll discuss why it’s so important to choose the right name for your dog, regardless of his color!
White dog breeds
It’s not just cross-breeds that can turn out white.
There are lots of different pedigree dogs that are predominantly white.
Some popular white dog breeds include:
Many breeds can produce white dogs across a whole range of different shades.
Pit bulls, bull terriers, and poodles are good examples of this.
Why choosing the right name for your white dog matters so much
Although dogs of a specific breed do look alike, they all have their own unique personalities, just like people!
That’s why it’s important to choose a name that reflects this.
Of course, when a pup is still growing, he develops in personality as well as physically.
For that reason, you’ll often have to take a best guess at how your puppy will turn out and hope to choose a name that suits him when he’s fully grown.
Brief is best
When perusing lists of white dog names, always pick something short and punchy.
The best white dog names are those with only one or two syllables.
That’s because very long, complex names are hard for your pup to memorize.
That’s not to say that you can’t choose a long name for your puppy if you come across one that you absolutely love.
You may just need to abbreviate it to a nickname that’s shorter!
Now, we’re going to take a look at some cool dog names that might suit your white dog perfectly.

Important considerations when choosing white dog names
There are a few important things to bear in mind when you’re looking around for white dog names.
- Choose a short name that has only one or two syllables and easy for your pup to learn and remember. If you do choose a long name, pick one that you can easily abbreviate to a memorable nickname.
- If you already have a dog (or a cat), don’t pick a white dog name that sounds too similar to the moniker of one of your pup’s housemates.
- Don’t choose a name that could be confused with one of your favorite training commands. For example, if you’re going to use “Sit” as a training command, don’t call your dog “Fritz!” Although that’s a cool name, it could cause your poor dog great confusion if he mistakes your command for a come to call!
White dog names – summary
Choosing a great name for your new white puppy is extremely important.
Name-choosing is also a really fun way to spend some time before you get your puppy home.
First of all, the name must be one that you will always really love.
Also, though it can seem like a great joke at the time, try not to pick a name that will go out of fashion or that will lose its meaning as time goes by.
Always choose a white dog name that your puppy will find easy to learn and remember.
Beware of names that sound too much like training commands or could be confused with the name of one of your other dogs.
