The best names for a male dog

It is not uncommon to choose a name for your dog because of a trait of its own, its color or the impression it gives off. This choice can be made according to various criteria and the possibilities are endless. Faced with this embarrassment of choice, here are some suggestions to give a name to your dog if he is male.

Choosing a name for your dog is sometimes a puzzle, especially if you want to opt for something that is a bit out of the ordinary. While the original choices may appeal, some classics remain equally effective and appealing. Most often, it is advisable to choose one- or two-syllable names to facilitate the learning of basic commands. 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 male dog  ? These few indications will help you make your choice.

Every year his letter, according to the Central Canine Society

Since 1926, the SCC ( Société Centrale Canine ) has been recommending to breeders and dog owners who are to be registered to give them names that begin with the letter chosen for each year . Thus puppies born in 1926 have all received names beginning with the letter "A". The following year, new births were registered under names beginning with "B", and so on. The goal was to put order in the registers listing the dogs registered in the French Book of Origins. The "Z" was subsequently removed from the list due to the difficulty of finding names beginning with this letter. It will be the same for the letters "K", "Q", "W", "X" and "Y". In the end, the dog alphabet for naming dogs is therefore limited to 20 letters . 2015 is thus the year of the "L".

On the other hand, if you do not plan to have your dog registered for the LOF, you do not have to comply with this rule.
