When naming a puppy with a dark coat, owners are often drawn towards black-themed ideas. One of the best places to find such an idea is from synonyms like Raven, Onyx, or Ebony. Another approach is to seek out words that mean black in a different language. Noir (French), Schwarz (German), and Nero (Italian) are a few examples. Others like to venture a bit further and name their dogs after items that are commonly black. Chocolate, Spade, and Coal are a few typical options. People often associated with the color black also lend their names. Cash is a popular idea taken from Johnny Cash also known as ‘The Man in Black’. Led and Zeppelin are unique ideas coming from the band known for the hit song ‘Black Dog’. This list is a compilation of the best names that mean or are related in some way to the color black.
