What Are Your Favorite Cute Puppy Names
Which cute puppy names do you prefer? Do you have any favorites from the list? Do you like classic names like Lady and Benji, or are you a fan of modern dog names?
How did you come up with your last dog’s name? Was it a name that fit their personality? Was it a name that sounded cute? Let me know in the comments below.
When it came to naming Laika I struggled for a few days, but when I saw that name I knew it was the one. It sounded good, it fit her personality, and it has a historical context that makes nerds like me happy. She’s named after the stray dog who became the first mammal to orbit earth back in 1957.

Lovely Cavapoo says
Nice for us to find some interesting names for our dogs. Sometimes we have difficulties deciding on a name for our Cavapoo puppies. This list here is an answer.
Growing up, we had dogs named Margie, Maverick,& Sam. My Grandparents had a Musser. Since having my own dogs, had a Majesti, 5 Maltese, 1st named Pee Wee (someone else named him), Brooke Lynne (in 80s), Kelly, Karo (after my Dad’s childhood nickname), & now a female named Gentry. She was named after county my Dad & Aunt grew up on farm. Had a bunny, was gonna name him Milo till finding out it was common, so his name is Ganja. My next Maltese (hopefully this summer) will be Gypsy (possibly). Generally try to give them unusual names. Enjoy seeing these lists. Thank You!
