Pit Bull Terrier Dog Name Considerations

When naming your Pit Bull Terrier, there are several important things to keep in mind. In many ways, naming your four-legged kids is much like naming your two-legged children. The name you choose will stick with your pet for all the years of his life, and it’s the name you will have to call out the door when trying to get your pet’s attention. It’s also the name you will have to provide to your veterinarian, so be mindful not to choose something embarrassing.

Think about your Pit Bull’s personality. Many traits can be used to come up with unique names. You may also want to consider common Pit Bull characteristics, like strength, courage and loyalty. Pitties come in several colors and often have unique markings. Perhaps yours has a heart-shaped spot or even a circle around his eye like the famous Petey. Your pet’s colors or markings could help you come up with a name that’s a perfect match. Don’t limit yourself to just “dog” names; there are many “human” names that are perfect for our four-legged family members! From classics like Max to more modern names like Dillon, there are several options that could be a great fit for your Pit Bull Terrier.
