Black Coonhound Dog Name Considerations

Names that are appropriate for the Black Coonhound should relate to the appearance of the dog as well as the dog's propensity for the hunt. Because the breed is a part of the hound group, names that are fitting of a hound are appropriate for the Black Coonhound. Names such as Ace, Sarge, Moose, and Rambo are very popular male hound names. For a female Black Coonhound, Maggie, Lady, Gracie, and Molly are appropriate names. 

For those who want to give the pup a name that reflects the appearance of the dog, names such as Blackie or Samson (due to the size of the breed) are fitting. 

The Black Coonhound is primarily found in the Southern United States. This might inspire owners to choose a "Southern" name. Names such as Beau, Bobby, Luther, or Bubba might fit a male Black Coonhound. Female names such as Dixie or Susie are also fitting. 

Finally, one should consider that dogs respond better to a one- or two-syllable name, particularly those that are in training. Max, Sam, Lilly, or Belle are great names for dogs that will be training to hunt game of any size.
