Introduction

If you’re looking to give your dog an outlaw’s name, chances are you’re either an outlaw yourself, have a bit of a rebellious side, or just plain appreciate the kind of brutal lifestyle necessary to survival in the Old West — either that or your dog is a rebel who needs a name to suit their rambunctious personality. Whatever the case may be, there are surely plenty of characters from that era rife with fantastic old names that will help make your dog stand out in a crowd. If it happens to be the latter, there is undoubtedly no better way to honor a modern rebel than tying them to one of history’s most notorious.

Outlaw Dog Name Considerations

Fortunately, unlike many other themes dog owners may choose to go with, there are numerous big, wild, and notable outlaw characters from the Old West that provide ample fodder for generating names ideas to match to your rebellious friend. Because of it, there is certainly a lot to play off of. When coming up with ideas, consider the outlaws’ names, looks, and personalities first and foremost. With your dog, keep in mind their looks and personality as well, as those are usually the easiest ways to match them up with something appropriate. 

Looks are usually a great place to start, as many famous outlaws had very distinct looks. For instance, if your dog happens to have a stately mustache, such as a Schnauzer or a Shih Tzu, a name like Wyatt, Doc, or Holliday would be good fits, as both sported thick mustaches in their time. If they also have long hair like a Lhasa Apso, Wild, Bill or Hickock would be even more appropriate. 

Personality is undoubtedly a good way to go as well. If they tend to be ruthless hunters, Killer or Miller, after James “Killer” Miller would be a great fit. If they are particularly wild and carefree (or just plain thieves), maybe Bonnie or Clyde or other related names would be suitable. If they’re both fast and rambunctious, then Zip would be a great choice.
