Our Favorite Female Dog Names

Choosing the right female dog names from the list below that best fits your taste and your dog's personality is no easy task. Our dogs do have gender, and as they grow up in our homes, we notice the difference in the masculine and feminine of our canine companions. If your dog is a bitch, it is quite certain that you are excited, even giggly, about naming her.

And, just like human names for the fair gender, they are inevitably more diverse and creative than the male species.

The more common names that easily pops into girl dog owner’s mind are usually the ones that end in an “ee” sound. For example, you most probably have thought of “Katy” or “Chloe” or “Bonny.”

All of those are fine, but the better way to choose female dog names is to wait and see what personality your dog shows.

Usually, girl dogs are a bit more playful than the males, but of course, you may soon find out that your pet is a bit more reserved and conservative.

In cases like that, names like “Princess” or “Duchess” would really sound great. A personal favorite for calm female dogs is “Leila” as it sounds so regal and composed.

If your dog shows a bit more friskiness than the norm, and likes to frolic and prance about, it would be fitting to give them frilly names. Some of these would include “Lola,” “Kiki,” or “Salsa.”

When thinking over female dog names, it would also be best to know what to expect as they grow older. A bigger dog certainly deserves a pretty name that suits its size. A name like “Mini” would not be appropriate for a large dog, even if it does sound too cute. Just imagine you having to call out “Mini” in the public park and up trots a dog bigger than you!

You will also have to be well aware of the fact that dogs recognize the sounds of the word, and not the meanings, so it would be advisable to pick a name that will not sound like any of the commands used in dog training.

Furthermore, try to pick a name that does not sound like any of the other monikers in your household to avoid confusion, both for you and your new pet.

Here are some more ideas on female dog names:

Weather and season names like Winter, Summer, Sunshine, or Storm all sound amazing, depending on the traits that your dog shows. Plus, you will surely not mind repeating these names over and over again.
If you consider your pet dog a gem, as I am sure you do, you can look into giving it the name of precious stones like Diamond, Ruby, or Turquoise.

Sometimes, pet dogs are given as gifts and you might want to look into giving it a name that reminds you of how you got it. If you received your dog as a present during Christmas, you can name her Holiday, or Star. Or, if you got her from your beloved on your anniversary, name her Heart, or Love.

There are so many female dog names to choose from, but it is certain that you will find the right one for your canine.
The most important consideration when naming your pet is that you chose it with your pet in mind.

Always remember that your relationship with your pet is based on great communication, and this starts with her name.
