When deciding what to call your dog, not just any name will do. For one thing, you’re going to be saying it…a lot. Plus, there’s a science to the right sounds. And most importantly, your dog is awesome, so their name better be awesome, too.
If you’re looking for a name that stands out from the pack, you’re in luck. We’ve handpicked some great name ideas for cool dogs by digging through data on new baby names to find the most fashion-forward options. Then we cross-referenced the list against our Rover.com database, and eliminated any names that already ranked in the top 100 dog names.
Hipster dog names, stylish dog names, just plain cool dog names: call them what you will, the names on this list have pizzazz. From literary to cute, vintage to spunky, they’re on-trend in all the right ways.
