Introduction

Help! My new puppy needs a name!  Are you in a quandary about what to call the cute and cuddly canine who just joined the family?

Dog Names that Start with C Considerations

What is in a name?  Have you ever considered that question?  If you have ever named a newborn child, I'm sure there was some consideration given to where that child fit into the family, the physical attributes of the child and the gender of that child.  The name of your new puppy can be just as important as that of any human child and can be treated similarly.  You might consider the breed of your new pup; some breeds simply shout certain types of names, like a Great Dane or Mastiff might seem appropriate to name a large name like Colossus or Connor (meaning much wanted, strong in battle), or perhaps you have a tiny little Maltese whom you might name Carlotta  or Chattie (both meaning tiny and feminine).  You might consider the color of the coat of your pup, reddish colors possibly being named Cinnamon or Cayenne, a brown or tan coated dog could be named Cocoa or Coffee, and a white coated dog could be named Creamy, Chalky or Chastity.    Use your imagination and get creative but above all, keep the task fun!
