Introduction

The Chihuahua is said to be the smallest dog in the world, but don’t be fooled, because what they lack in size, they certainly make up for in personality.  This popular breed is extremely versatile and very, very loyal.  The Chihuahua breed originated in Mexico and sources suggest that this dates back to 100 AD.  They are spunky, intelligent companions that will be carried in your arms or walk beside you which makes them a desirable pet.  They are very cute with pointed ears high on their head.  They often love to be a pampered pooch and will even jump in your purse for a ride!

Chihuahua Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a name for your Chi can be daunting.  The Chihuahua is such a small and cute dog, with a dinosaur-sized personality and getting this right is a big responsibility.  Luckily, inspiration is all around us and there is a huge choice of perfect Chihuahua names, but this doesn’t necessarily make your choice any easier.  Before you begin, you might want to think about the style you want to adopt. 

For instance, cute Chihuahua names might be Sparkle, Lovebug, Minnie, or Peanut.  Maybe you decide that your pooch needs a name to suit its attitude, like Brutus Maximus, Krusher, or Kong.  Maybe you feel inspired by celebrity Chihuahua owners and want to choose a more original name, like Britney Spears who has Bit Bit and Lucky, Sharon Osbourne who has Martin, or Alyssa Milano and her Chihuahua, Gibson.  Of course, you may be inspired by the Chihuahuas in the movies like Bruiser, Chloe, Papi, or Bella. 

 The Chihuahua come in a range of colors, so you may choose a name like Coco if your dog is brown in color, or something like Caramel, Fudge, Biscuit or Vanilla for the Chihuahua with a cream or golden coat.
