Our Retriever is back with the lab report, and the results are in: Dog pun names are pawsome.
Fortunately, we didn’t have too ruff a time going through the Vetstreet database of over 10.4 million dog names (all belonging to dogs born between January 2013 and May 2016), where we fetched the 186,258 dog names that made just one appearance in the database. From there, we chose the following seven monikers, all of which include some sort of dog-themed play on words.
(And sorry about our painful puns above, we just couldn’t help ourselves!)
One item to note: These photos are not of the actual pets with these names, although we did try to choose pictures of the same breed as the pet from our database, when the name called for it.
And you thought your dog was a little devil.
We're all about having some good times when it comes to finding new pet names, and this funny moniker? It's positively dy-no-mite!
You want a dog name that brings to mind fields of flowers and sunny, spring days? As you wish.
Anyone needing an automobile-themed name for their Pug could do a lot worse than this witty play on a car part.
You might find yourself in an epic battle against fur in your home, but you'd never dare battle it out with a pooch whose name is a play on the Greek hero Hercules, right?
Pomeranians might be small, but they're big on personality, so we have no doubt that a little Pom would be able to carry off this long name with serious style.
We're pretty sure that a dog with this name, based on the sword in the Arthurian legend, almost definitely possesses some magical powers. You know, like the ability to scarf down a bowl of kibble in the blink of an eye or convince his owners that it's definitely time to go for a nice, long walk right this minute.
