It's exciting to get a new dog. There's so much to think about, like where he'll sleep, what he'll eat, and probably the most important thing, what to name him.
With so many names to choose from, it helps to narrow your choices down a bit, and this article helps you do that. It has suggestions for people who love holidays and seasons.
Did you get your new furry friend from Santa and want to give her a Christmas name, or are you inspired by springtime and think your pup deserves a flowery name?
Whatever your reasons, you'll find over 200 awesome choices for your best buddy. Every major holiday and all four seasons are covered, so the hard part will be deciding which one is your favorite.
I'd Love to Hear From You!
Did you get a new puppy for Christmas? Is your house decorated for this holiday all year round?
It's the most wonderful time of the year for many people, and if it is for you, then a Yuletide name might be just what your puppy needs.
Not only does the Easter Bunny make an appearance at this holiday, but so do new puppies who need names.
So if you love everything pastel and eat jelly beans all year round, then your furry friend needs a name to match. One of them is sure to make an egg-cellent choice!
If you and your dog bleed red, white, and blue, then I bet one of these patriotic names is just what you are looking for.
Your buddy will shine brighter than the fireworks on the fourth with one of these choices.
Are ghosts and goblins your thing? Does your pup love spooky nights? Then a Halloween-themed name could be the perfect trick for your treat.
If Hanukkah is your favorite time of year, then a name from this list will be shinier than the gold coins you get throughout the season.
Your pup will be the hit of your Hanukkah Shabbat dinner. Just don't let her eat the latkes!
"Laissez les bon temps roulez" or "Let the good times roll," as they say in New Orleans during Mardi Gras.
If you and your dog like to dance the days and nights away during this holiday and throughout the whole year, then one of these names will be better than all of the beads you get!
Top of the morning to you! Do you wear green all year around instead of only on St. Patrick's Day? Is your puppy all about the Irish?
You won't go wrong if you decide on a name from the biggest celebration on the Emerald Isle.
Are you one of those people who cook like it's Turkey Day throughout the year? Is your dog a big turkey?
If you go gaga over Thanksgiving, then you may just want a name inspired by this delicious day. Hopefully one of these yummy ideas will suit you.
Valentine's Day, that day of the year when everyone is a romantic. Some puppies are just like that; they ooze romance.
So if you and your lovebug pup can't get enough of each other, then one of these dreamy names will be sure to steal your heart for good.
Bundle up, it's cold outside. For all of you fans of winter months, then a pup with one of these names will remind you of the frosty forecast all year long!
Who doesn't like spring flowers? For those of you who anxiously wait for the first signs of the season to arrive, why not keep it alive all year around with a spring-themed name for your furry friend?
Don't they call it the "dog days of summer" because no one ever wants them to end? All you summer people who think it should be sunny and hot all year will love these summer-inspired names, and so will your pup.
When the leaves start to fall and the fireplaces start going, then nothing is better than curling up with a dog and admiring the beauty that is this season. To keep that fall feeling every day of the year, why not choose a name inspired by it?
What About You?
I Hope You Found the Perfect Name
It's not easy picking out that perfect name for your new furry friend. There are so many to choose from, and you want to make sure it's just right. After all, he or she is going to have it for a long time.
Take your time to decide, and if you found one you love on this list, then congratulations. I'm happy I could help!
Thank you to some special pups!
I have to thank my silver and black labradoodle who is in many of these photos. He is always a good sport when modeling holiday attire, even if he only cooperates for about a minute or two.
Thank you, as well, to other friends who let me take photos of their awesome dogs!

Thanks Ellison - I think that Wednesday would definitely serve as a Halloween name.

This is cool, a lot of really unique names! I guess my cat is sort of holiday and season inspired if you stretch it, Wednesday, as in the Adams family, is sort of a Halloween name!
