Introduction

The vision of a cute puppy romping in the snow can keep you warm on the coldest of winter days. Not much is cuter than a young dog testing his paws on snow for the first time or shaking out his coat that is covered in snow. And in the colder weather there is nothing like curling up on the couch with your new friend, keeping one another warm and cozy. Whether your new friend was born in the winter or came home on a winter day, this season offers a plethora of names to choose from that will always remind you of the time of year he became yours.

Winter Dog Name Considerations

A winter-themed dog name may fit the bill when the newest member of your family is born on a snowy day or first appears in your life in the season of a winter wonderland and chilly weather. You may also be drawn to a winter name if your dog is white in color, as his coat will bring to mind white, fluffy snow, something many people associate with winter.

In addition to your dog’s coat color and time of birth, his breed may also lead you to consider a winter-themed name. Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes inspire names that bring to mind the winter season, as many sled dogs are of these two breeds. The large amount of thick fur these dogs have may bring to mind the cold weather that comes with the winter months.

Perhaps your dog immediately takes an interest in the snow or has a thick coat that leads to his being comfortable in the colder weather; this may focus your name search in the direction of names that bring the winter season to mind.
