Female Dog Names

While there are lots of great female dog names available, it’s very tough to put them into categories (unlike names for male dogs).

When choosing a name for a girl dog, generally you’re looking for something that sounds “softer”...in other words, something that sounds feminine.

It can be hard to put your finger on just what makes a particular name a good female dog name.

But, you generally know it when you hear it.

For instance, it’s hard to imagine calling your little girl, Ralph or Tiger.

One nice way to find a great name for your female dog is think about your favorite books, movies, television shows, etc. Is there a heroine in any of these stories that you admire or enjoy?

Or, do you have a favorite female celebrity? Would her name make a good one for your canine companion?

Names of Famous Women or Girls

Here’s a sampling of names from some famous women (real and fictional) that might make great female dog names. I bet you can think of even more:

  • Anastasia, Athena, Bambi, Betty Boop, Blondie, Bridget, Brittany, Bronte, Buffy, Calamity Jane, Cher, Cinderella, Dolly, Elvira, Garbo, Gidget, Goldilocks, Gretel, Guinevere, Heidi, Isis, Jezebel, Juliet, Lucy, Medusa, Mona Lisa, Pandora, Raggedy Ann, Scarlet, Tootsie, Venus, Whoopie, Xena, Zsa Zsa

Famous Female Dog Names

There aren’t that many really famous female dog names to choose from (seems like most of the really famous dogs are boys). But here are a few you might want to consider consider:

  • Blue (from the children’s show, Blue’s Clues), Lady (from the Disney cartoon, Lady and the Tramp), Lassie (from TV and movies).

Here's a more complete list of female dog names listed alphabetically:

Your dog isn't really going to care what you call her (as long as it’s not “late for dinner”). The value in choosing a great female dog name (one that sounds feminine) is that other people won’t have to guess (or look to see) whether your dog is boy or a girl.

So you might as well choose a good female dog name for your little girl...a name that says "here comes my princess!"
