Introduction

The Border Terrier belongs to the popular terrier group. They have a distinct following as well – in fact, it’s the United Kingdom’s tenth most popular breed and the most popular terrier overall according to Britain’s Kennel Club in 2016! These long-legged terriers were bred as herders originating from the farms of the UK. Their hunter nature is balanced by their friendly demeanor, making them a popular family pet. They are a perfect companion for kids as they are hardly aggressive but very energetic, often giving chase to small game and setting off to venturesome strolls. While Border Terriers can be troublesome because of their stubbornness, they live to please and are encouraged by praise and kindness!

The short wisps of wiry fur all over its face and body are some of its most popular traits, complementing their carefree and adventurous personalities. The structure of their face resembles that of an otter, making them even more adorable. Their distinct terrier body is small and can fit through lots of nooks and crannies. With these traits together with their natural wanderlust and curiosity, there is never a dull day with a Border Terrier in the household! You’ll definitely have fun picking a name for this free-spirited breed.

Border Terrier Dog Name Considerations

Suitable names for the Border Terrier would factor in their independent and bold spirit. Their scruffy, wiry haired look, small stature, loose coats and lithe bodies bring to mind the names of famous adventurers. “Indy” from Indiana Jones and “Lara” from the Tomb Raider series are short and sweet names perfect for our intrepid furry friends, aren’t they? A name with a sharp and snappy sound that’s easy to shout out and call would be very useful for this stubborn yet adorable pup, indeed! We’ve also included famous explorers in history and fiction as a theme in the list.

Terriers are well known to be family pets, and they are often given human names to emphasize the bond that the dog creates with its family. More creative names would be inspired by the Border Terrier’s roots as a herder, hunter, and guardian. Thankfully, there is a multitude of masculine and feminine names that meet these considerations! Our top 30 for each are listed below.
