Names for your fluffy, floofy, fuzzy, or shaggy dog

As the mom of a fluffy dog who could be mistaken for one of the Muppets, I have to admit that I have a soft spot for fluffy dogs.

I love coming up with nicknames for my own fur baby, and decided to brainstorm a mega list of dog names inspired by all things fluffy.

In the alphabetized lists below you’ll find names inspired by everything from cloud names to fluffy foods to famous dogs.

Also, while these dog names are great for fluffy dogs, you’ll also find they are adorable for shaggy and long-haired dogs, too.

So let the naming fun begin!
