    Naming a new dog is an exciting time. This little being will quickly become a member of the family and will be with you for years to come.

    The name you choose will be used countless times, so it’s important to pick the one you love and that suits your pup’s personality.

    There are a few things to consider when choosing a name for your dog.

    First, think about the sound of the name. Does it roll off the tongue easily? Is it something you can say in public without feeling embarrassed? You'll be saying your dog's name a lot, so you want to make sure it's something you're comfortable with.

    Second, consider the meaning of the name. What associations do you want people to make when they hear your dog's name?

    To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of the best dog names and their meanings, divided into categories based on genre and personality.

    The Most Popular Dog Names and Their Meanings (Bonus Names 😄 )

    Ace - Originally a military term meaning "one who excels," Ace is now used as a popular name for dogs.

    Bella - Bella means "beautiful" in Italian. It's a popular name for female dogs and is often seen as a nickname for Isabella or Arabella.

    Max - Max is a short form of Maximilian or Maxwell and means "greatest." It's a popular boy's name and one of the most common names for dogs.

    Charlie - Charlie is a diminutive form of Charles or Charlotte and means "free man" or "woman." It's especially popular in the UK.
