Introduction

Did you recently get a new dog?  Are you fretting in your sincere attempt to pick the perfect name for that cute, cuddly canine who recently joined your family?  Names are so important...it’s who we are and, sometimes, it can be why we are. It’s no different for our dogs, so take your time, watch her and get to know her.  Research has shown that one or two syllable names tend to work best for your cuddly canine, especially when she is young and in training.  To avoid confusion, be sure NOT to call her any name which sounds like a command.

Best 4-Letter Dog Name Considerations

While, admittedly, it is not customary to refer to your new furry family member as “dog” for months on end, it is important to give her potential name some thought and even devote a bit of research time before labeling her with a moniker that will stick with her for life.  You could consider her color, breed history and any particular cute (or perhaps not so cute) habits or characteristics she may display.  For example, you might name a red or auburn colored dog Gini or Gigi (short for Ginger) or Cini or Cino (short for Cinnamon), or a black and white mix could be named Ashy  or Camo. Additionally, a brindle dog could be Brin or Bibi.  If you have a dominant dog, you could name him Boss, and a large breed could be named Hoss.  How many times have you seen a Great Dane named Tiny or Whee or a Teacup Chihuahua named Brut or Killer? As you can see, the possibilities are endless!  So, make it fun, take away all of the “barriers” and let your imagination run wild in search of that perfect name. A word of caution...to avoid embarrassment, you might want to consider what the name will sound like when you shout for her from across the ball field or the dog park or two blocks from home.  Also, it’s a good idea to avoid choosing names which sound similar to or, when shortened, can sound similar to commands you might find yourself using as you train your furry family member.  Let the sky be the limit!
