Every good dog needs a good name. A one that is easy to pronounce, yet it sounds great. It may be humorous or so simple that it becomes complicated to explain. Perhaps it can be clever as well. Naming any pet can be very hard, although some people don’t really bother.
This is, of course, up to you, but if you are going to see, train and love a dog for the next decade, better come up with something wonderful.
So, what if your pet is an American pitbull terrier? How should you call it? Thankfully, there are many good names that you can choose from!
Most Used Names
If you don’t have a good enough imagination to come up with the name yourself, which is understandable, you could just choose one from the top used names list. It’s probably the easiest way (after not naming the dog at all, that is).
The most popular male names online are:
And for female dogs, the list is:
The names above are very simple, but they sound quite good.
Inventing a Boy Name
Boy names are supposed to be manly and smart, really. Don’t limit yourself to this, though. After all, your imagination is the only limit, so go for it. You should approach the task with humor and ingenuity.
Some word play would be a really good bet as well. If you really want to make up the name all by yourself, but can’t think of one no matter what you do – then you should find some “fuel” for imagination. Watch movies, read, browse online. Your name can be a combination or an inspiration of others.
Another good advice for a boy name are scientific therms (Volt, Ohm…) or even scientist names (Einstein, Newton, etc.).
And finally, something epic would be great as well. You can call a pitbull “Rambo” or some other action-movie character. It’s not only funny, but also effective.
Inventing a Girl Name
Girl names can be much simpler. Princesses, ladies, straightforward women names and such is all that’s really needed here. You can take inspiration from queens (in the real and unreal world), popular singers.
Historical persons can sound nice, too. Maybe call her by the name of the first programmer, Ada. Fairytale characters will also always work, no matter what.
- Make up names for a pitbull with consideration of it’s personality, e.g. fast and agile – “Swifty”, strong and slow – “Rock”, smart – call it by a scientist name, etc.
- Don’t overdo the humor. While it’s nice to make a name that’s a bit funny, using it as a joke is just on the line of being weird.
- Treat a dog like a human. Don’t invent a name that would hurt a human, if it was his. No swear or just unpleasant words. It would be ridiculous.
- You may also base names on your or pet’s history, e.g. “Scar” – because it has a big scar on the face…
