Introduction

When you see the majestic Rough Collie, the first thought that comes to mind is probably Lassie, the super intelligent dog that helped rescue Timmy from the well. Not every Rough Collie out there is named Lassie and coming up with an original name that fits your dog’s personality should not be difficult. When you are out at the dog park, you want a name that is unique so your pup knows he is being called and you do not have five other dogs coming when you call! While Lassie, or Laddie for the boys, is a great name for a Rough Collie, you may want a name with a little more originality.

Rough Collie Dog Name Considerations

 When naming your new Rough Collie puppy, you may be tempted to name her Lassie or him Laddie or Shep, but you may want to squash that urge and think of a different name. While Lassie, Laddie and Shep are wonderful names, they are extremely popular with Rough Collie owners and if you are hoping for an original or unique name, these are not it. Rough Collies originated in Scotland and may families choose to look for a name that has Scottish roots or a Scottish sound. Take the time to get to know your new puppy’s personality before settling on a name for him. Many times, he will help you come up with the ideal name, such as a sable and white boy being named Duncan because he is a brown warrior. Perhaps you have a love for the Scottish city Edinburgh. You may pick a name that honors this love affair such as Edy or Embra. There are even some Irish names that have become popular with Rough Collie owners including Connor, Donal and Colleen. Whatever you decide to name your new puppy, you can be assured that she will be as loving and devoted as Lassie was to her family.
