We love all the sweet canine Daisies and Lilies that we meet at the dog park, and the popularity of those names got us thinking: what about other flower names for dogs? Now more than ever, pet owners want their dog’s name to fit their personality and their passions. For nature-loving dog owners, the wide world of flowers can be a fantastic source of dog naming inspiration. There’s enough variety to fit any dog, from a delicate Violet to a feisty Dandelion, and they’re not limited to female dogs, either (Thistle and Rhododendron, we’re looking at you).
This list of flower dog names was created especially for the most beautiful dogs, and by that we mean: every dog everywhere. We handpicked these dog flower names by digging through our giant Rover database of dog names nationwide. We also found inspiration from dogs in the Rover office and dogs we’ve encountered through our wide social media travels. Many of these are quite unique, while others appear in 2018’s top 100 dog names.
This is only the beginning, of course. Nature-themed names for dogs can come from trees (Cedar, Aspen), the herb garden (Sage, Rosemary), or natural wonders (Rainbow, Forest). And don’t even get us started on place names, because we could go on all day. Use your imagination, have fun, and be sure to check out our other dog name articles for more ideas.
