Need inspiration for Boston terrier names? Trying to think of Boston terrier puppy names for your new adoptee? We have ideas for you!
So, you've found the Boston terrier puppy of your dreams? And now you're trying to figure out what to call him or her. Do you pick a humanoid name? Or stick with a dog-type name?
Or maybe you should pick one that's tied to a personality trait... or what your BT looks like? Does it matter if it sounds male or female? Names can also be tied to the country – or state – of origin. For instance, poodles are often given French names and Rottweilers may have German names.
There are just so many ways to go with dog names, it can be hard to know where to start, can't it? That's why I thought it might be helpful to put up a Boston terrier names section of the site.
Obviously, I can't list every possibility here, but at least I can give you some inspiration and a jumping off point... and maybe that'll help you think of your own perfect BT name.
Picking the right dog name for your Bostie can be challenging. So I thought I'd share a few tips to help you out...
Although I caution you above not to keep changing a new dog's name, it is OK to change the name of a dog you adopt who already has been given a name by the breeder or previous owner. As long as you use the new Boston terrier name consistently thereafter, your dog shouldn't have any trouble learning it!
I really think the possibilities are endless when it comes to naming Bosties. We chose Gizmo because we thought our little guy looked a lot like the "good" gremlin in that movie Gremlins, and his name was Gizmo. A BT name I came across on the Web was Oreo, and I think that's perfect!
Other ideas might include various names connected to the typical Boston appearance... maybe Jeeves for his butler in a tux look? Or Midnight... or Panda? Or how about Bandit to signify the mask-like markings? (I had a wire-haired terrier named Bandit once, but I think the name suits a BT more.)
Domino would work too. Sox could signify both the typical white feet/legs and its Boston heritage (Red Sox?). Or what about Riley or Regan as a nod to the city of Boston's strong Irish heritage?
Those are just a few suggestions to get your creative naming juices flowing. I've detailed some more specific male and female names on other pages. If you have a great Boston terrier name you've used or thought of using, feel free to share it on one of those pages, as well.
