Southern and country dog names

Southerners are proud and attached to their families, land, roots, and their canines. Our dogs are more than just pets—they are companions and family members that share our roofs and drink from our wells. For this reason, dog names are terms of endearment in a Southern household. Whether we call him/her Bo, Jo, or Lucy Loo, these names carry sentiments of love and are passed down from generation to generation.

Below you'll find a handsome collection of classic Southern names for your male or female dog. These names are as wild as the countryside and as Southern as chicken fry, but they are also pretty cute names that could fit any dog, even ones with urban or Yankee roots.

How to Create More Southern Dog Names

I could add more, but I'll stop here. I'd love to hear what some of you have named your good ol' Southern dogs. If you can't quite find the right name from this list, here are some tips I have.

  • Use Tree and Flower Names: Oak, Willow, and Clover are just some examples of using nature for name ideas. Country people spend a lot of time outdoors and we appreciate what nature has to offer. Likewise, our dogs love the outdoors, so it only makes sense to name them after some sort of growth.
  • Patriotic Names: The red, white, and blue runs through our blood. Why not dedicate your dog's name to a city, state, or hero from history. Some ideas that come to mind are Dakota, Arizona, Lincoln, or Winslow.
  • Inanimate Objects: If you're a bit daring and want to get creative, you could name your dog after some classic things that are typical of the countryside, such as Truck, Fiddle, or Hay.
