With a distinct look like the Pug, many appearance driven names come to mind. Whether it is the breed defining wrinkles or the curled tailed there are plenty of places to look. The Pug has often been described as 'multum in parvo' which means 'much in little'. Think of the small athlete that has the heart to overcome the odds. Names like Rocky (after Rocky Balboa from the movie series about an undersized and underrated boxer) and Rudy (after Rudy Ruettiger from the true underdog story of a Notre Dame football player) come to mind. Other great names can be taken from the origins of the Pug. The earliest records of the Pug date back to ancient China, where the breed was kept as a lap dog among royalty. Many exciting and unique names can be taken from Mandarin, Cantonese, or one of the other Chinese dialects. Try to find a word that fits your Pug's personality or appearance.
