Switzerland Dog Name Considerations

If you are inspired by Switzerland dog names for your new pooch, there are considerations to think about. Maybe you are inspired by a particular place in Switzerland. The name Basel is ideal for the energetic pooch who likes to play, and Basel is also a Swiss city. Switzerland is also home of the popular watch maker, Rolex.  Rolex would make a fantastic Swiss name for the canine who enjoys the finer things in life.

Weiss is a great name inspired by color for a white colored pooch, while Schwarz means black.  For the small pooch, maybe consider a name like Elvin, which is Swiss for Elf.  Gerard is a masculine name consideration if your dog is strong and muscular, and the name Ingrid means beautiful, so it’s ideal for your gorgeous, four-legged friend.

Temperament is certainly something to consider when naming your pooch.  Didier is a great name for the pup that is clumsy and funny. Hingis is a fiercely loyal canine, whereas Hans is willful and stubborn. If your four-legged friend is extremely sweet, you might consider the name Ragusa, after the famous Swiss chocolate. Why not write down any names you like from the recommendation list below?
