The best names for a female dog

The choice of the name for your dog can be done according to various criteria and the possibilities are endless. Here are some suggestions to give a name to your female dog.

Faced with the embarrassment of choice and the desire, often, to find something original, choosing a name to give to your dog is not always easy. If the choices that come out of the ordinary can seduce, some classics remain equally effective.

The ideal would be to focus on nouns consisting of one to two syllables , just as for the basic commands that one instills in one's puppy. The simpler the expression and the clearer sounds, the sooner the dog will become familiar with it and respond to it. What are the best names for a dog ? These few indications will help you find inspiration.

The rule of the first letter of the first name according to the year

The SCC ( Central Canine Society ) recommends to name his dog according to the letter of the year . This principle was set up in 1926 by what was then called the Central Society - before becoming the Central Canine Society - to better organize the registration of dogs in the LOF (Book of French Origins). From this date, all dogs born in the same year must be given a name whose first letter is the same.

Thus 1926 was the year of dog names beginning with "A", 1927 with "B", 1928 with "C", etc. The "Z" had been removed from the canine alphabet because it was difficult to find names beginning with this letter. The SCC will then delete the letters "K", "Q", "W", "X" and "Y" for the same reason. The dog name alphabet put in place by the CCS therefore has only 20 letters . 
Dogs born in 2015 have received names beginning with the letter "L". 2014 was the year of the "J" (the "K" was removed) and 2016 will be the year of the "M".
