Golden Retriever Names

Golden Retriever Names

The most important thing to remember when choosing the best name for your Golden Retriever is that you need to like it. It doesn’t matter what anyone else say or think, if your Golden Retriever responds well to it and it will not “embarrass” you or people around you when you use the name in public, everything should be fine, after all your dog doesn’t know the difference.

Here are a few DO’s And DON’Ts to guide you in choosing the best name for your Golden Retriever.


1. Choose a name you like because you will be the one using it, and you need to like the sound of it.Golden Retriever Names

2. Pick a short name, preferably one with one or two syllables. Dogs don’t learn long names easily and it will prevent you the frustration from saying it 2 million times before the dog remembers it. Dog commands are usually one syllable (“sit” , “stay” etc.) and by using a two syllable name like “maggie” or “bailey” etc., it makes it a lot easier for dogs to differentiate between their name and a command once you start training them.

3. Pick a name that is unique. It s nice to name your dog the same as the president’s dog’s name, but so do many other people. Once you are at the vet or some other place where a lot of other dogs are it will be confusing if 10 dog owner all start calling their dogs “Maxi”.

4. Your dog’s name should only be associated with positive things. If you give your dog a name that is associated with something bad or some bad experience, you will carry that negativity over into your relationship with your dog. Don’t make your dog suffer for bad things that happened in your past.

5. It’s always a good idea to try the new name for a few days to see if it grows on you and how your dog responds to it.


1. Choose a long complicated name like “Frau Grundlich von Emmerstein” unless you are planning to call your dog “Frau” or “Grund” instead.

2. Choose a name that sounds like a command you might teach your dog in future. A name like “Shay” could be confusing if you teach your dog the command “stay”, or “Fletch” if you teach your dog the command “fetch” etc.

3. Give your dog an offensive or embarrassing name. This includes general insults, racial slurs, swear words etc. Do you really want the vet to call your dog “Fatpig”, “Fartface” or “Dumbass” in front of everyone else.

4. Don’t change an adult dog’s name unless it’s absolutely necessary. If you really must change it, change it to something similar eg. “Marley” to “Charlie” or “Kylie” to “Miley” etc.
