Tell Us a Bit About Your Dog

Just pick a gender and a breed and we’ll delve into our database (it’s a veritable gold mine of magic monikers), crunch some numbers, and then give you the results. You can choose from the UK’s top 25 breeds, but don’t worry if your breed isn’t on there, there are also “mixed” and “other” options that you can select.

The wild card

So did you find the perfect name for your new four-legged family member? Fantastic. Do you prefer one of our suggestions to your dog’s actual name? Change it! No, don’t do that.

The important thing to remember is that your furry special someone deserves a name that reflects both their and your personalities. Keep in mind that the best dog names are the ones that make you smile when you say them. After all, it’s your dog, and you’ll be saying their name…a lot.


We’ll delve into our huge Rover database of dog names and based on the information you provide, we’ll give you some dog-name-related intel. We’ll tell you the two most popular dog names for your dog’s breed and gender, and if you’re looking for a name that stands out from the pack, you’re in luck! We’re throwing in a third, decidedly random option that’s just for fun. That’s right, we won’t just give you one result, we’ll give you three whole dog names to choose from! Then we’ll leave it up to you to decide if your new addition is more of an Alfie or a Captain Merrylegs. Good luck and have fun choosing the perfect name for your new wee friend.
