Some of the best dog names come from foods of all kinds, including meats, cheeses, and sweets. These are even better as a dogs name if the dog either especially enjoys the food or is the color of the food.
Dogs love meat, and there are number of meat inspired names for dogs. Tbone and Ribeye are both cuts of beef, and Porkchop is a cut of pork. Meatball and burger are foods normally made with beef. Different Sausages including Hotdog, Schnitzel, and Wiener are great names.
Dogs also love Cheese, and so Cheese and Fromage (which is French for Cheese) are fun choices. More Cheese inspired names are Gouda, Cheddar (especially for a yellow dog), Feta, and Brie (which is best for a female dog).
Some nuts have fun names, and so can be used. Consider Almond (best for a small dog), Cashew, Macadamia (with a nickname of Mac), Pistachio (with a nickname of … um … tach), Peanut (best for a small dog), and to go with those nuts Jelly.
Most dogs love fruit, and so think about Banana (best for a goofball, or a yellow dog, or one who is both) and Peaches (best for a female).
Who does not love breakfast foods – dogs sure do. You can’t go wrong with Waffles (best for a goofball), Toast (best for beige colored fur), Muffin, Strudel, and Scramble (like scrambled eggs, best for a fast dog).
You can get many excellent names from Sweets or Desserts. Cookies like Nilla (as in Nilla Wafers – best for light fur), Oreo (the black and white cookie – best for a black and white dog), Yodel, Twinkie (best for a yellow dog), Cupcake, Custard (best for yellowish fur), Licorice (best for black fur), Sundae, Pudding (maybe for a plump dog), and Marshmallow (for a white dog).
Even though dogs should never ever eat chocolate you can find good names there, especially for a brown dog. Some examples are Bosco, Coco, and Hershey.
Some names from beverages are Moxie and Cola, which are both good for dogs with brownish fur.
Almost any snack food is a potential name, including Crackers, Triscuit, and Ritz.
Don’t overlook names for dog food, including Biscuit and Kibble.
As you can see, almost any food can be used as a name for a puppy. More names are Pickles, Olive, Chowder, Noodles (another good name for a goofball), Hoagie, and Pepper (for a dog with black fur).
