How to Choose the Right Goldendoodle Name
Look, finding the right name for any dog is hard (especially for first-time owners), no matter how many lists of the best dog names you go through. Our advice is simple.
Just spend time with your furry friend, and don’t rush it. Your pup’s unique traits will shine brighter than the sun, and that’s when you’ll instinctively come up with a name.
But, there are a few things you can consider, like your pup’s personality, which can help you choose the best name for them.
What to Consider When Choosing Your Goldendoodle’s Name
Finding the perfect name for your Goldendoodle is important. You want it to be something that won’t be lame, cringy, or boring in a few years.
Let The Goldendoodle’s Personality Shine
Every puppy has a different personality. Goldendoodles are know for being very friendly and calm, even when they’re young.
So, you can (and should) base your naming choice on choice on your pup’s personality traits. For example, if your Goldendoodle is particularly smart, go for one of the intelligent names we’ve mentioned below.
Keep It Short
There’s only one rule when it comes to naming dogs. Always opt for shorter names. We’ll agree that Snickerdoodle is a great name for a Goldendoodle, but it’s way too long.
One trick we’ve come up with is cutting long names to keep them below 3 syllables (with 1-2 being the optimal length). For example, Snickerdoodle would turn to Snickerdoods (or Snickerdood for a boy Goldendoodle).
Make It Clear
Our last piece of advice regarding naming dogs is to ensure the name doesn’t sound similar to dog commands. For instance, the name Neil would confuse your pup when you teach him how to “heel”.
Goldendoodle Name Trends
When it comes to Goldendoodle name trends, we’ve noticed that most owners go for cute names. And, to be fair, going for a fearsome German Shepard name, like Gunther, wouldn’t fit a little Goldendoodle.
