It’s like naming a child. You should be extra cautious and take your time when coming up with the name because names stick! Once your pet learns it, there is no going back. But that’s not something to worry about too much as anything you pick, they will love.

We’ve put together this list of over 100 dog names for Chihuahuas to help you pick the perfect one. Try saying them out loud to see if they flow nicely off your tongue. If you have kids at home, it’s probably best to run the name passed them too, because if they can’t say it (or don’t like it), your dog will likely end up with more than one name and won’t know which to listen to. Are you ready? Scroll down to start your search!
