One of the best places to turn when seeking out the perfect name is other owners. This page is here to allow everyone to share their selections or maybe just pass an idea along. Each of these options has been submitted by one of our loyal visitors. There is a section at the bottom of most categories where you may add your own recommendations. Maybe you know of some excellent choices that others would benefit from. It's important that we have contributors helping to keep our lists up to date. Please share your favorites so that all can enjoy.
Each year we tally up all of our user suggestions and compile a list of the top 10 suggested names. User suggestions come from the suggest box found at the bottom of our category pages and also from the My Dog’s Name Is search results. To keep it interesting, a suggested dog name may not appear in more than one of the yearly lists. For each of the names that reached our top list, we include some interesting facts. The full list here includes all suggestions that have made it to our site. Some ideas get weeded out during the moderation process. Our team of moderators works to ensure that only the freshest, most quality names make it on our pages.
