Chihuahua Names: Male, Female, Cute, & Mexican

Updated on December 23, 2016

“Yo quiero Taco Bell,” is a phrase you might remember that cute little Taco Bell dog saying on commercials. And, this cute little dog is a chihuahua!

Weighing in at an average of 3 to 6 pounds, but as much as 15 pounds, chihuahuas are amongst the smallest breeds in the world; but this means nothing to their big personalities!

If you've ever had a chihuahua as a family pet, then you know very well that they make excellent family dogs and watchdogs.

Their level of confidence and bold personality mixed with their suspicion of outsiders make them seem more like a guard dog, but inside the home, they can thrive in a loving environment with plentiful attention.

Spunky Personalities

Chihuahuas need names that totally suit their individual personality whether they are outgoing or more reserved.

They are fiery and feisty, yet friendly and loving to those in their pack. Quite honestly, even though they are tiny, I would be scared to rob a house that has a chihuahua; with how protective they are, you’d never leave with your ankles intact!

The right name will eventually come out and you will know it as soon as it hits you. If you can’t figure out what to name your chihuahua, listen to it’s personality, it’s probably barking a name at you and you don’t even know it!

Is a Chihuahua Right for You?

It is important that chihuahuas get properly socialized at a young age or they may grow up to be shy and timid. They tend to form a close bond with one person much like a pet bird, but if it is raised around a loving family, the chances of having a friendly people-dog are good!

Due to their small size, you really need to take into consideration how well they would do in your home. They can squeeze into small spaces, and since they like to follow their owners, they run a risk of getting injured accidentally.

This goes the same for having young children or other animals in the home, such as a large dog. Also, if you have any type of large snakes as pets, or snakes that may grow large, having a small dog is never recommended.

Chihuahuas are generally a low-maintenance dog, aside from routine vet visits. They require very minimal grooming and do not need a lot of space to be happy. Take him along for a ride in your car with you and he will be chipper!
