Funny options are an underused resource in the dog naming world today. Most new owners overlook the category thinking that something more serious is necessary. While naming your dog can be serious business, the best names don’t always have to be. This list does contain many options that are just provided for the sake of humor, but intermingled are many quality ideas that might just fit your dog.
A good way to generate your own humorous names is to take dog related terms and cleverly place or find them within other words. The dog keywords that you start with should be short. One or two syllables max is ideal for the best results. Woof, bark, ruff, and wag are good starting points. A couple of amusing names generated by this method are Woofenstein and Howlie Berry.
Another approach to finding a hysterical puppy name is to brainstorm for silly words. The key with this approach is to catch the audience off guard. The name must be whimsical but also something that would never be expected. Chewbacca, Skittles, and Deogee (D-O-G) are a couple of comical examples. The goofy names that are derived from this method are typically more practical.
Even if you don’t find your diamond in the rough, these names should at least put you in a jovial mindset. In fact, we hope you pee your pants. That's completely unrelated to the list. Seriously though, studies have shown that laughter relaxes the body, boosts the immune system, and is good for your heart. You can thank us later. For now enjoy a collection from the lighter side of life.
