Introduction

A quite beautiful season, autumn finds us after a sweltering summertime, and we usually welcome the chilly temperatures and soft breezes. We look forward to following a fall pathway covered in red, orange, and purple leaves and roasting s’mores by a toasty campfire. The stars somehow appear brighter in the cool nights, and the birds begin flying south. We celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving, and we enjoy taking our dogs for strolls in the golden afternoons. If you’ve recently taken a pup or rescue into your home and heart, you may be looking for a name that speaks to the striking loveliness and traditional activities of fall that so many anticipate.

Autumn Dog Name Considerations

If your adorable pooch bears a coat of auburn, red, deep brown, or gold, you might seek a name for them that reminds one of leaves swirling down from autumn trees. Even if your dog’s fur is white or gray, it may invite you to recall overcast days on which the cool air finally finds you and sends a longed-for chill up your spine. If your pup is all black, you could perhaps think of witches’ hats, cauldrons, and soot from fireplaces. More than anything, maybe your canine’s personality simply represents a piece of your past, a memory where life is vivid and wild in all its autumn splendor. The fall can certainly hold some of our most precious flashbacks of camping, mountain hikes, carnivals, hayrides, feasts, and family.

Try a few autumn names for your pet, and pay attention to the one they seem to respond to most. If you want to honor the temperature shift, try “Jack” (short for jacket), “Turner,” “Nippy,” or “Crisper.” If highlighting a particular fall holiday seems more fitting, think about “Patch,” “Scarecrow,” “Hally,” or “Pumpkin.” Finally, if you’re seeking a name that blatantly screams autumn, you might go with titles like “Rake” or “November.”

Miami Beach, FL
Personality

My husband and I rescued Candy Cane back in the fall (we just rescued another dog too). My husband and I were getting ready for a party, and we had set some treats out for our guest. Now, one of the bowls had candy corn in it. My husband and I continued to set up the party while we discussed on a name. I thought ZuZu would be a cute name, but my husband thought it was too close to my name (MiMi). Anyway, as we are discussing what to name our dog, she (the dog) jumped up onto the table and knocked the bowl of Candy Corn. So that’s how she got her name.
