Introduction

A chocolate-colored coat on a dog is considered one of the most stunning colors.  Often, dogs with this color have beautiful light or amber-colored eyes, and the striking contrast melts hearts.  Some owners are inspired by the rich color and wish to capture the quintessence of such a color in the perfect name.  Chocolate-themed names are excellent ways to capture this description.  The names under a chocolate theme may vary from a reference to the color brown to the sweet treat beloved by many, worldwide.  Naming options in this theme are boundless, whether you want your dog's name to reflect the rich color of its coat or the sinful deliciousness of chocolate.

Chocolate Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a name for your dog is personal and requires much thought.  You want your best friend's name to be a perfect fit.  Chocolate themed names, while acceptable for all breeds and types of dogs, are probably best suited toward brown-colored canines.  Brown and chocolate-colored dogs come in many shade varieties as well as sizes.  Some of the chocolate-themed names are better suited to smaller pooches, like small Spaniels, whereas other names are perfect for large dogs, like the chocolate-colored Labrador Retriever.  

True, rich chocolate-colored dogs have the advantage of more pointedly chocolate-themed names while the lighter and red variety of brown dogs might enjoy a more subtle name.  Names like Fudge or Hershey are obvious references to your dog's coat color, but Coco, Chip, Amber, and Twix may not be as color descriptive. Multi-colored dogs that have brown in their coats will also enjoy subtler names.  Cookie, Tootsie, Nougat, and Toby are direct references to chocolatey goodness, but they also have other meanings.  For example, Tootsie might refer to the Tootsie Roll, but it is also a pet name given to loved ones.  Toby, for a male dog, refers to the Toblerone candy bar but the shortened name Toby does not make that instantly clear.
