Bringing a new pet home is so exciting. Naming this new pet though can be a little daunting. Below are a few tips to help make this process easier for you.
Consider your pet’s personality. This means getting to know your new pet a little bit before settling on a name. Does your new pet remind you of someone, is there an activity it loves to do, is there a character trait that stands out?
Consider unique names. You can find unique names anywhere. Look for everyday objects and think about your pet’s personality to see if it is a match.
Consider names that you like the sound of. Names from TV, movies, books that you like are great choices.
Get suggestions from friends and family. They can often suggest names that you would have never thought about.
Consider human names. Names like Sam, Molly, Max, or Jake are just as good names for pets as typical pet names like Fido.
If you have a purebred dog, try something aristocratic. Princess Aurora III or King Charles James. Make sure you have a name to call them for short as well.
Make the name gender-appropriate unless you do not mind being questioned about it.
Keep it simple. You will use this name quite often so test it to see if it is easy to say quickly. Names with two syllables are best.
Try out the name. Does the name sound okay when you holler it down the street? Would you be embarrassed to mention the name in a conversation with others?
Use the name around your pet and when they respond offer praise, attention, and treats. Do not overuse their name as they might mistake it for a common word.
