Formal Dog Name Considerations

When we think “formal,” we think elegance, luxury, and charm. We picture the splendid, the marvelous, and even the royal. If your kindred spirit bears such qualities in appearance or temperament, consider a formal name. If their coat bears an obvious shine or their ears point upward as a crown, you’re appropriately dubbing them as royalty. Perhaps your dog is of a noble lineage, and you want a name that strikes the chords of nobility itself. Whatever the reason, we hope you’ll find our name guide useful and inspiring. Even if you don’t find what you’re looking for, let this be a platform from which you dive into even more formal tags.

Even if you have a playful, clumsy ole buddy, the formal names make a great ironic title. There’s nothing better than a goofy doggo pawing and rolling around with a name like “Augustus,” “Prescott,” “Imogen,” or “Margaret.” These elegant monikers paired with hilarious pets are absolutely hysterical and applauded. But maybe your pooch is, in fact, quite proper and glamorous. Try calling them “Jamison,” “Delaney,” “Xavier,” “Beatrice,” “Vivienne,” or “Gwyneth.” For names that are tied to rather formal individuals of today and of history, try “William,” “Arthur,” “Elizabeth,” or “Guinevere.”
