If you have just bought yourself a new dog or pup, the next important stage is to give it a distinctive dog name. You may choose dog names that are popular dog names, female dog names, male dog names or even funny dog names. What is important is that you like it and that it gives your dog his unique identity.

Thinking of a one-of-a-kind dog name for your pet can be a difficult task, especially since it will be with your dog for life. The dog name that you choose will say as much about you as it does about your dog. It reflects how you view your dog and your relationship with it. Some dog names sound like male dog names and some sound like female dog names. Some dog names are funny while some are serious. It does not matter what kind of a Dog Name you are looking for but it is very essential to choose a Dog Name wisely. Some names like Killer, Wolf, Tiger, etc. can be frightening to people who are already apprehensive of dogs. Your pet dog will be an important part of your family. Therefore select a name that you won't mind calling out time and again.

Another point to consider when choosing a dog Name is whether you would feel comfortable calling out to your dog at the top of your voice in public. Some unique dog names like Stinkball or Dumbbell may sound delightful at first but can leave you feeling embarrassed in the company of a crowd.

When thinking of unique dog names for your pet do consider whether your dog will be able to distinguish his or her name from normal everyday commands. Similarly the dog name that you select should match with some physical trait of your dog. You don't want to give your big strong male dog a cute name like Twinkle Toes or Sugar Plum or a very strong powerful male name like Fang or Goliath to a delicate female dog.

At times, waiting a few days before choosing a name can be of help as you may pick up on little characteristics of your new dog that will give you some inspiration. If your new pup loves to steal things and hide them in his bed, how about 'Bandit'?

Giving your dog or pup a name can be easy if you keep the following pointers in mind.

As far as possible use a dog name with more than one syllable. Dogs find it easier to hear longer names than shorter ones.

As mentioned earlier, make sure your dog's name does not sound like another word that your dog might confuse with. Bo is a popular name but it sounds like the command 'No'.

Choose a name that suits the sex of your dog. Female dog names for girl dogs and male dog names for male dogs make more sense although neutral popular dog names can also be chosen.

Yours dog's physical appearance might help you choose a name.

Your dog's personality could help you decide a dog name.

Your dog's behavior could also inspire dog names.

You could also give your dog the names of any famous personalities like movie stars, rock stars and even politicians for that matter.

Another great source of unique dog names is from books and television.

Once you have named your dog, be sure that you use it as frequently as possible, so that he learns it quickly.

If you want your dog to like his name, never ever use it when you are angry with him or disciplining him. Try as far as possible, not to raise your voice when you use his name.

The most popular male dog names are Sam, Sammie, Max, Bear, Buddy and Taffy. The most popular girl dog names are Samantha, Maggie, Molly, Lady, Lucy, and Sadie. Some popular dog names that are used for both male and female dogs are Tasha, Brandy, Ginger and Taffy.
