Black dogs are a special bunch, from the classic black Lab to the striking great Dane, the schnauzer, the Portuguese water dog, or any lovable mixed breed dog that landed the dark fur genes. So how do you find the perfect name for your black dog? Because these dogs come in such a variety of size, look, and personality, we’ve given a lot of thought to this list of best black dog names. There are plenty of options to fit any dog, from a spunky Blackberry to a strong Onyx.
Some of these names are inspired by your dog’s color, but not all! After all, you don’t have to give your black dog a name that has anything to do with their coat if you don’t want to. We handpicked these choices by digging through our Rover.com database of dog names nationwide. Many of these names are unique, while others show up on the list of top 100 dog names.
This is only the beginning, of course. Use your imagination, have fun, and be sure to check out our other dog name articles for more ideas.
