Naming Your Big and Small Puppies
I enjoy thinking of names for dogs so I have been working on a list of good names for the big and the small dog as well. I have been inspired by a number of sources from using synonyms for small and big, little, large, etc. As well as things or places of size comparison to name the small and big pups.
One choice I like is using the name of a larger mammal to name your large breed dog. Like Moose or Bear if you have a large hairy type breed dog. Mammoth was also a large furry mammal you could use to name your large dog, since they were huge and big like the elephant. Try Dino out for size, a big size dog that is. You can even go into crypto zoology to grab some names for your large dog, especially ones like Monster, or Sasquatch for the furry doggies how to use bollinger bands . There are some places like I mentioned I use for large dogs as well. Got a big puppy and you think he will probably be hard to say “move off the bed” so to say when he gets bigger? Call him Mountain. A big chunky breed dog that you know will grow nice and large? How about Sumo, as like the Sumo Japanese Wresters, they are nice and hefty in size.
One of my favorite are names from Mythology like Hercules or Titan for the larger breeds. Goliath for those nice large breeds too is a suggestion I like for a big strong dog like the legendary Philistine Warrior it is taken from.
And lets not forget the names we can take from the obvious: Colossal, Giant, Jumbo, Massive, Mega, Max, Big, Gargantuan, or simply Large.
And those tiny little cute small doggies? Although not too flattering, think small, Flea as a name. Mouse and Cub are cute little referenced names for small dogs.
Another cute idea comes from food names like Muffin, Peanut, Cupcake, making good choices for the small dog names.
There are also such mythical names that you can choose from like Tinkerbell, Sprite, Pixie, I would say those for the female small dogs though, what do you think? Remember the Kewpie doll? How about naming your little cute female puppy after that, Kewpie?
