Introduction

German Shepherd’s glamorous brother, the White German Shepherd is not only fabulous when it comes to looks, but quite striking in all other walks of (dog) life. Due to their sweet nature, White German Shepherds are not usually employed as police dogs (unlike their brown cousins) and are unjustifiably considered to be not as desirable in the true German Shepherd Lovers club. However, White Shepherds are kind, loyal, and highly intelligent, which makes them the perfect companion for an active person who just cannot resist their snowy white coat, playfulness, curiosity, and the elegance they carry within.

White German Shepherd Dog Name Considerations

Energetic and sweet, White German Shepherds deserve a name that will showcase their playful nature and the utter elegance they possess. Since they carry a royal-like poise you might consider a name such as Rex. Not only does it mean king, but there is also a famous White German Shepherd from the DC Universe that carries this name – Rex the Wonder Dog. Names that evocate the strong and active nature of a White Shepherd can be a good choice for your new pup, but if you’d rather accentuate their sweetness and social personality, you might opt for Riley, which signifies the independence and the outgoing traits they possess.

Whichever lane you decide to take, you have a unique opportunity to choose the perfect name for your lifelong companion. Whether you’d like to put an emphasis on your canine friend’s looks or their personality, take your time and get to know your puppy before you commit to a name. And even if you cannot commit to one, you can always pick a good sounding middle name for your new family member! Remix the whiteness of the Russian snow and royalty by naming your new pup Ivan the Snowy or be traditional with Catherine the Great for your majestic, beautiful princess!
