How to choose a great name for your Labradoodle
First, you may be wondering how in the world to choose a great name for your Labradoodle. Which name fits your puppy’s personality? Appearance? Here are some tips on how to choose a name for your pupper.
Consider a two-syllable name for your Labradoodle.
Before you create a list of names, have you considered how many syllables a dog’s name should have? From my research on the science behind naming a dog, I found several experts who recommend giving dogs two-syllable names. Why?
Two syllable names allow for more inflection when spoken. That means your dog has more to hear when you’re speaking their name to them.
For example, imagine naming your Labradoodle a one-syllable name like “Tim.” The name is so short there’s not as much opportunity for inflection in your voice.
Whereas if you name your dog a two-syllable name like Bella, there’s plenty of opportunity for you to vary or even elongate the name. For more about the science behind naming your dog, check out Web MD’s article on puppy naming.
Choose a name that “speaks” to you as well as your Labradoodle too.
Next, you should only include names on your list that you positively connect to on emotional level. If the dog name you’re considering gives you a good feeling, your pup will pick up on your good vibes too. Having a name that you love just adds another layer of connection between you and your pupper.
Avoid names that sound like training commands.
Labradoodles are smart and will respond to their name over time, but why not give them every advantage by avoiding names that sound similar to common training commands?
It will be easier for your puppy to pick up on his or her name if you avoid those that also sound like basic training commands. For example, you may want to avoid a name like “Stacy,” which sounds similar to “Stay.”
By the way, most of the names on the list below, follow the above naming conventions.
Also, you’ll find our list of Labradoodle names organized for you, so it’s easy to navigate. Check out some or all the sections: boy names, girl names, cute names, names based on physical traits, and names based on common Labradoodle personality traits.
