Names for Brussels Griffons

As the famous saying goes, “great things come in small packages.” In the case of the Brussels Griffon, this is very fitting. These little dogs only stand between 7 and 10 inches tall, but they’re simply fit to burst with character, which makes thinking about names for Brussels Griffon a lot of fun but the final decision quite tricky. How do you define a dog so bold, so entertaining, so smart, and so adorable in just one word?!

We know how hard it can be to settle on a name, so we’ve compiled our favorite Brussels Griffon name ideas into this post for those in need of inspiration.

How To Name Your Brussels Griffon

Brussels Griffons are very distinctive in both appearance and personality, and it’s always a good idea to look to these things to get inspiration for a name. For example, the American Kennel Club describes these dogs as “comically self-important”, so you might want to go for a classy or even pompous-sounding name like “Montgomery”.

On the other hand, Brussels Griffons aren’t the most “polished” dogs appearance-wise, so you might pick something like, for example, “Scruff” or “Shaggy”. Finally, the Brussels Griffon originated in Belgium, so another idea is to choose a name that’s popular in Belgium.

Our best advice is to take your time choosing a name and be sure to select a name you enjoy the sound of, as you’re going to be saying it out loud an awful lot!
