Tips for naming your Goldendoodle
Before you decide on a name for your Goldendoodle, here a few things to keep in mind:
1. Consider choosing a name with two syllables. As Chloe and I researched names, I was reminded that dog experts recommend two-syllable names because they allow for more inflection and emotion. (With a few exceptions, all the names in our lists have two syllables.) For more information on the science behind naming your dog, read Modern Dog’s The Science of Choosing a Dog’s Name.
2. Avoid names that resemble cues or commands that you’ll be teaching your dog. (For example, “Stacy” and “stay” and “Layla” and “lay.”)
3. Think about the type of name you love. Do you like unique names, classic names, descriptive names? We’ve included a variety in the lists below.
4. Say the name out loud to see how it rolls off the tongue.
5. Sleep on it! See if the name you’ve chosen still “fits” your pup over time.

Those are all great names and it was super helpful that you put them in dogogories. Tee hee hee. Mom suggests 'Patagonia' with nickname 'Patty' as another name for an outdoorsy kind of doodle. Winks.

After reading all these creative name suggestions, I may need another Doodle! The only name I couldn't use from your list is Charlie. Nothing wrong with that name, but I have met numerous Charlie Doods in Tucson. I've stopped counting.

Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe and I would be so excited if you added another Doodle to McSquare doodles! You'd be a trio of cuteness, for sure!

Our "Charlie" isn't a golden doodle, but he is a sweet, sassy, silly, Scottie! We glad to see his name mention in one of the lists. It's perfect for him!
