Do you love winter? Are you crazy for Christmas? If you just can’t get enough Christmas joy, you may be inspired to name your pup after the holiday season. If so, grab a cup of cocoa and settle in for a long winter’s…list of 101 Christmas dog names.
To make searching for a dog name that is as perfect as your pup easy, we’ve compiled and organized our lists of dogs names by theme including Christmas girl dog names, Christmas boy dog names, winter dog names, Christmas dog names for white pups, and more. As you’re narrowing down your faves, here are some naming guidelines:
- The majority of the names on our lists below have two syllables. Here’s why: Dog experts recommend two-syllable names because they allow for more inflection and emotion.
- As you’re considering a name, say it out loud. Does it roll off the tongue?
- Unsure about a name? Sleep on it! See if the dog name you’re considering “fits” your pup over time.
- After looking through this list, if you’re still searching for the perfect name for your pup, help is here! Check out our other dog naming blog posts of red dog names, old fashioned names for girl pups, vintage names for boy pups, and Goldendoodle names.
- Don’t worry, we checked with Santa. All of the names on our lists are on Santa’s “nice” list too. 😉
