Commonly referred to as ‘Man’s best friend’, every puppy bursts on to the scene with the unique ability to quickly move to the top in their owner’s heart. If a puppy’s excessive cuteness doesn’t get you, the playful attitude will. With a lack of coordination and oversized paws, a new pup can quickly turn feet into smiles. As Fido is pawing and pouncing a way to your heart, it is time to start coming up with ‘Man’s best name’.
The best dog names come from the family; the puppy’s biological family that is. While Aunt June probably won’t be too keen on the idea of naming a household pet after her, looking to the dog’s parents is a huge plus. This is a great opportunity for your new pal to carry the family name on to the next generation. While honoring one’s creators is an excellent idea, it is not the only reason names kept in the family rate highly. Part of being a best name is standing the test of time, and a family name already has at least one vote in its favor.
As an alternative to combing the family tree, many of the best names can be found from other great dogs. Seldom a day goes by that there isn’t news somewhere of a heroic or wonderful dog accomplishing amazing feats. Take the chance to honor one of these brave canines by passing their name on to your new pal.

|Lila||Pronounced Lee-lah (we speak Spanish at home). In Spanish it means lilac or purple which is my favorite color, it's also a beautiful name, and if you look up name meanings for English it means 'play' which suits her personality perfectly! The only pictures I get are when she's sleeping because when she's awake, she's too fast! Always playing!|
