Small Dog Names – 350 Ideas For Naming Your Little Puppy

The name of your little puppy will be one of its most memorable characteristics. So, it’s very important to choose a name which will make him or her stand out from other puppies around. You need not worry if you are just naming your baby after yourself; however, there is no harm in giving a playful nickname to your new bundle of joy!

If you have decided to name your puppy after yourself, then here are some ideas for a fun and creative name:

Tiny Tom – A tiny dog with big personality. Tiny Tom is known for his love of the cuddly things. (He loves to snuggle up to you)

Little Buddy – A friendly companion who always wants to play with others.

Lil’ Bubba – A playful and energetic little pup. He likes to bounce around and run around.

Puppy Love – A sweet puppy who enjoys playing with everyone. His favorite activity is to cuddle up next to you.

Bubbles – A bubbly little guy who loves all kinds of activities including bouncing around, running about, jumping on toys and chasing his tail.

Puppy Pooh – A playful and energetic little dog with a great love for eating.

There are many other fun and creative ideas you can think of. All you have to do is to come up with a short but fun name that fits your pet’s nature. You may also want to consider your pet’s breed when choosing a name as some names sound better than others depending on the dog’s physical characteristics.

For example, an Irish Setter named “Fluffy” just doesn’t have the same effect as it would if you had named it “Oliver”.
