Doberman Pinscher Puppy Names

Doberman lovers are creative in finding unique and beautiful names that suit the individual characteristics of their loved ones.  Some chosen names have been classical and enduring, while others have been trendy and lose their appeal quickly.  Because it’s not a good idea to change your dog’s name, choose a name carefully.  Find a name that is easy and quick to say, that will catch your dog’s attention, and that will elicit respect from others.

Some of the overused names have been popular because they were short and crisp.  Fido is a classical Greek moniker meaning, “I am faithful”.  The name Fifi has percussive sharp sounds that capture a dog’s attention easily.  Although the other dogs won’t laugh if you use these names, people might and the effect could be just as aversive for your pup! Try to avoid names like "Satan" when at all possible.

This Dobe is grinning!
Doberman Pinscher Portrait The first place to look for naming ideas is your pup’s pedigree, especially if you can trace it back to the 19th Century.  Books written on the history of the breed also will have many names that have been employed over the decades.  Works of literature having canine characters can be an interesting source for names, especially classic or antique names.
 

If you have a special area of interest, you may find a word that has a special meaning and an appropriate sound that will make a good Doberman name. Similarly, names from Roman, Greek, Norse, or other mythology can make striking names for a bold and beautiful Dobe.  The names Apollo and Thor have probably been overused, but another, more obscure name or term won’t be hard to find.  German names have also been popular for both Dobermans and Rottweilers.

In the list below you will find some old standards, perennial favorites if you will, along with some esoteric suggestions. When you consider a name, roll it around in your mind and let it sink in, say it a few times, imagine derivatives and diminutives, and write down the ones that might work for you. Think of any pejorative connotations that might apply in your social circle. Sometimes a perfectly good name from mythology has been corrupted by the marketing schemes of some corporation. When all of the names begin to sound the same, it's time to take a break!
