You did it. You’ve just adopted a dog, congratulations! Now comes the all-important task (besides doggy potty training): selecting the right name. When it comes to choosing a dog name, you want it to be special and fun just like your precious pooch. While some others might like Bella or Buddy, you want something different. We all want everyone to know that our pooch is the cutest of them all but the right name has a way of boosting that cuteness factor. Like the relationship you have with your pup, the name you give them should reflect how unique and special they are. After all, your dog is different and deserves the best name ever.

Dogs are family, so it’s perfectly normal to spend time choosing the right name for your pup. Sure, you can go with something classic and well known like Spike or King, but your dog isn’t just any dog. Your canine is special and looks at you like they know exactly what you’re thinking. Your dog deserves a name like no other, right? Lucky for you, we’ve collected a diverse list of unusual and unique doggo names that will leave you stuck with so many good choices. There is no one else like your pup, so why give them a run of the mill name? Here are the most unique dog names to help your pooch stand out at the dog park.
