Introduction

Let’s be honest, if you’re looking to give your dog a cheese name, chances are you’re either a cheese fanatic or your dog has cheesy qualities, which isn’t hard given their potential overlap. Both dogs and cheese can be hard or soft, spicy or sweet, yellow, white, blue, mild, or stinky, let alone come from all over the world. But just as importantly, like so many of the cheeses themselves, their names are wonderfully unique, making them a perfect place to draw inspiration from when looking for a clever and individual dog name. After all, most people don’t forget a Chow named Cheddar or a Lab named Limburger.

Cheese Inspired Dog Name Considerations

There is certainly a lot to consider when giving your dog a cheese name, but if you want to get past the basics, past just picking a favorite cheese and moving on, you’ll have to dig in a bit deeper. Consider what your dog’s strongest features are, whether it’s their breed type, appearance, or their personality, as those are usually the easiest and most appropriate elements to play off of. 

For instance, in terms of appearance, if they’re yellow or white with large black spots, Swiss would be appropriate. If they’re a blue breed, names like Gorgonzola and Cambozola would be apt. If your dog is white and lumpy, say, like a Bulldog, then Ricotta would be suitable. 

But there are lots of other characteristics you can play on as well. If they are particularly or regularly smelly, you could choose the name of a notoriously stinky cheese such as Epoisses, Roquefort or Limburger. If they have a bit of a temper, Pepper, after a spicy Pepper Jack would be a good choice. If they tend to absolutely melt in your lap, then Mascar or Mascarpone would be perfect fits. 

Whatever you choose, don’t be afraid to do some research and sample a few names (and cheeses if you’re able to) as you never know which will end up being a surprisingly ideal pairing.
