Introduction

Welsh Terriers have a strong personality all their own, and their unique personalities make them wonderful companions. The medium-sized dogs have two coats: a softer, shorter undercoat covered by a wiry overcoat that’s always tan and black. No one is exactly sure when these independent dogs were first bred, but they’re thought to be one of the first terriers. Their popularity in the United States began in the early 20th century and continues to this day. Though sometimes difficult to train, Welsh Terriers love running around in fenced-in yards and are fine with being left alone — although this doesn’t mean they won’t love when you’re around! Choosing a name for this independent pup is a fun task, especially given each dog’s personality!

Welsh Terrier Dog Name Considerations

When naming your Welsh Terrier, it’s important to consider their unique and strong personality. Keep in mind their independent mindset and their supreme loyalty to their families. Your Welsh Terrier is energetic and loves to play, though, so try not to edge too far into anything serious. Their expressive faces might also make you lean toward a more human name — something emotional.

Your dog’s name is important to how you think of them, so it might be wise to take some time to get to know your pet before naming them definitively. Understanding your Welsh Terrier’s fiercely independent and completely unique personality is the most important part of naming them, so don’t rush it!

All Welsh Terriers have coats of tan and black, so you may want to think of names that are homey and down-to-earth. For example, Terra could be a great name for a female Welsh Terrier who likes to play in the mud, as the name means “earth” in Latin!

Pooky's name story for Welsh Terrier Dog Names
Pooky
Female
Welsh Terrier
Redondo Beach, CA

We named Pooky after Garfield the Cat’s teddy bear, because when she sits on my husband’s lap, she looks like an animated teddy bear. My mom used to always bring over the Garfield comics cut from the newspaper and she passed not long before we got Pooky, so it was partly a tribute to her, too!
