Chocolate Labradoodle Dog Names
Among the many colors of Labradoodles, we found that the chocolate brown pups were one of the most popular. True chocolate brown Labradoodles are a deep and solid shade, reaching from root to tip. Paired with a peachy rose-colored nose, these sweet dogs just can’t get any cuter! One of these names would be a great match for any chocolate pooch!
Curly Names for Your Labradoodle
Soft and fluffy – and ever so curly! More often than not, Labradoodles inherit their curly locks from their poodle parents making them a wonderfully shaggy pooch! Maintenance is a must if you want to keep your pups fur in mint condition! Here are a few great names to tribute their luscious locks.
Mini Labradoodle Names for Puppies
Same great mix, but in pint-sized form! One of these is an end result when a Labrador retriever and miniature poodle have pups. Usually never exceeding more than 25 pounds, the Labradoodles might be a great alternative for someone who is unable to host a fully grown and active dog. Don’t let their little stature fool you, they will require exercise and enjoy their out time just as much!
Smart Labradoodle Dog Names
Labradors and poodles are fairly intelligent breeds on their own – combining the two create one heck of a mega hybrid when it comes to smart genes. Obedient, highly trainable, and eager to please are just a few of the Labradoodles traits attributing to their admirable brains!

Finding the Right Name for Your Labradoodle
Hopefully, you were able to find the inspiration you needed among our list of Labradoodle names, or at the very least sparked you to come up with your own! If you are having a little trouble narrowing it down to just one, read on for a few helpful tips to the perfect name.
- Names that end with vowels are easier for dogs to learn. Names like Lucky, Fido, and Bella got their names on the top of the popular list for more than one reason. Dogs can distinguish frequencies ranges higher (and better) than we can (have you heard of the dog whistle?), so having the vowel ending adds an intonation that makes it very easy to hear and understand for your pup. That’s not to say it’s the only way, but it will give your puppy a bit of a leg-up in his puppy training.
- One- to two-syllable names are much easier to say. Really long names are a pain, especially during training, so just keep that in mind if you find one you love. A little “Queen Elizabeth the 3rd” may be the fitting name for your regal pup, but using that as her proper name and calling her Lizzie will probably serve you and her much better.
- Do your best to avoid names that may be confused with commands. Imagine your little puppy learning to “sit” or “stay,” but their name is “Kit” or “Ray.” While the names are cute and we aren’t saying you can’t pick them, just keep in mind that learning the commands that sound similar will be a little trickier at first, so have a bit more patience if you’re set on the name.
- Think of the personality your puppy has (or is likely to have). Most dog breeds have specific qualities, so even before your puppy comes home, it is somewhat easy to pick a name. Or, you may choose to have your furry friend at home with you for a few days while you get to
- See how your pet reacts to their name when you say it out loud. This may be a clear indication that they love or hate a name. If an option provokes an alarming bark, we know that’s not the name for your pup! If you get a curious head tilt or a few puppy kisses, we can bet you have found a winner!
