7 Tips for Picking your Frenchie’s name

  • Find meaning: Choose a name that has personal meaning to you or your French bulldog, such as a favorite place, activity, or family name.
  • Sleep on it: Don’t rush into a name. Take some time to consider a few options and see which one feels like the best fit for your Frenchie.
  • Consider personality: Think about your dog’s personality and traits, such as their playfulness, loyalty, or silly antics. This can inspire a fitting name.
  • Length and simplicity: Keep the name short and easy to pronounce for both you and your Frenchie. This will make training and daily interactions easier.
  • Avoid common names: Stand out from the crowd by avoiding common dog names like Max, Charlie, or Bella. Choose something unique and special to your pup.
  • Use humor: If your Frenchie has a quirky personality, consider a name that reflects their sense of humor, such as Puddles for a dog who loves water.
  • Try it out: Before settling on a name, test it out for a few days to see how it fits with your dog’s personality and behaviors.
