Finding the Right Name for Your French Bulldog

With so many great options, we hope you’ve found a name as special as your French Bulldog. Whether your pup is stylish, cute, or goofy, it deserves the perfect name. So take your time before settling on the ultimate French Bulldog name for your loyal and lovable pooch. And if you can’t decide, why not name your Frenchie after a celebrity dog?

Useful Tips for Choosing a Great Name:

If you love more than one name from our list or find there isn’t one jumping out at you, we have three important tips that will help narrow down your search:

  • Stick With One or Two-Syllable Names. Not only will this assist with your training, as your pup will catch on to their name quicker, but they also sound great. Although Princess McPebble may be a pretty cute formal name, its a bit of a mouthful and might even confuse your pup. We suggest you shorten it up to Pebble!
  • Test Out the Name in Different Tones. You’ll want to choose a name that works for all facets of your puppies life. It should be stern for when your puppy needs to be corrected, but welcoming and warm for they’re being a good boy or girl! Dash and Rose are excellent names that clearly distinguish tones.
  • Steer Clear of Names that May be Mistaken for Commands. Choosing a name the closely resembles “sit” “stay”, or “come” could be incredibly confusing for your pup. Above all, avoid words that sound like “walk” as your pup will be raring to go for a stroll every time you call their name.
