325 Girl Dog Names for Your Female Pup

Naming your dog is one of the most exciting things about getting a puppy! You are setting the tone for a future relationship by using a word or name that you love and putting it on an animal you love, too. It’s a win-win.

If you’re dead set on a female dog, we wanted to give you an exhaustive list of names you can choose from. We have rounded up names in every category you could think of. Hopefully, this is a one-stop shop, giving you ideas that you haven’t thought of yet.

How to Name Your Dog

Searching for a name can be fun. But sometimes it’s hard to name a dog without first seeing their personality, so they wait until they bring the puppy home. However, you can look for names for your puppy anytime, even if you don’t have a dog or you don’t know their personality quite yet.

Choose a Meaningful Name

Can you think of a name that really means a lot to you? Perhaps you had a favorite pet as a child or there’s an unforgettable character in a book you love. If it’s a name that means something to you, what better name to choose for your fluffy little newcomer?

Get Input From Loved Ones

Do you want to get the opinion of your loved ones? Perhaps it really doesn’t feel like a perfect fit until everybody gives it the green light. You can always bring in all the people who live with you, or even your extended family to see what name they like best.

Create a Poll

If you’re a social media guru, you might be able to pop online and come up with a poll of your own. Perhaps you have a list of names that you just can’t seem to choose between. You can always post a poll to see which name gets the most votes. It gives people a way to participate!

Draw a Name From a Hat

You can’t beat chance! If you are having trouble pinpointing what name works best for your pooch, just pop them in a hat and pull one out. You can also use random thing pickers online to choose for you if you want the electronic route instead.

People Names for Female Dogs

There’s nothing like giving a “people” name to your dog. It’s going to surprise bystanders when you walk around calling your dog Jessica. It could certainly cause some confusion at the office also, which can be fun sometimes.

Tell all of your friends you have to get home to Jessica, and they’re going to expect a female companion of some kind. This is certainly so, just with a whole body of fur.
