Great Dog Names From Germany
Do you have a German dog in need of a German name? There are several German breeds—some are not even thought of as German.
The Boxer is a popular breed of dog with a German origin. The Great Dane is known in this part of the world (and most others) as the German Mastiff and is seen guarding farms and houses along the beach; the German Shepherd Dog, Miniature Schnauzer and Giant Schnauzer, and Dachshund are also seen on the beach at times. Yes, we also have Rottweilers, a few examples of the German Shorthaired Pointers, and even the occasional Weimaraner.
A lot of my German neighbors like to pick their dog names from things here in Brazil, but there are good choices they are avoiding and Max and Spike are common choices. Some of the names they avoid are hard to pronounce, and if you check the internet you will find you sites that will list over 10,000 choices among the words that a dog will never respond to, but even among the shorter word there are plenty of good choices.
What are some of the great German dog names for boys?
· Aldo: Wise one.
· Baldwin: Old friend.
· Ballard: Warrior.
· Bernard: Brave as a bear. This may not sound like a tough dog name, but it is.
· Bruno: Brown.
· Clovis: A famous warrior.
· Conrad: Brave counsellor.
· Derek: Ruler.
· Herman: An army man.
· Jarvis: Spear thrower.
· Kaiser: King. I think all of us have run across a German Shepherd Dog named King. Isn´t this a better choice?
· Martin: From Mars. Think of the god of War, not little green men.
· Otto: Wealthy.
· Panzer: Armored.
· Rudolph: A form of the word wolf.
· Rudy: A form of Rudolph, the wolf.
· Ruger: The brand of gun.
· Ulrich: Ruling wolf.
· Wendell: The traveller.
· Wolfgang: Rising wolf.
And if your new puppy is a girl?
· Ava: Bird.
· Bela: White.
· Berta: Glorious.
· Brenda: Sword blade.
· Elsa: Princess.
· Emma: One who cares.
· Frieda: Dove of peace.
· Greta: Variation of Margaret.
· Gretchen: Little pearl.
· Heidi: Honorable.
· Helga: A follower of God.
· Hexi: Witch. A great choice for a Wicca follower.
· Leyna: Little angel.
· Schatzi: Little treasured one. This is a great name for a special little Dachshund!
· Vera: Truth.
· Wanda: Wanderer. This name might be better for a pet fish, however.
· Zelda: Grey warrior.
There are some German names for animals that make good dog names:
· Adler: The Eagle.
Most of them, however, are either too difficult to pronounce or too short to make good names for a dog.
And of course some common household objects also make great dog names:
· Keller: The basement. This is great if you have a puppy that hides out all the time.
You might find another that you like but this is my personal favorite.
The German words for dog training are short and easy for a dog to follow. If you are using a German name why not take a few minutes and learn these commands?
· Sit: Sitz
· Down: Platz
· Stay: Bleib
· Come: Hier
· Heel: Foos
· Leave it: Aus
· Look at me!: Achtung!
And of course no dog can forget:
· No: Nein
There are a few names that I thought too common and overused in people, and in no way appropriate for your dog. If you find a German name I missed, however, and would like to use it, please think about how the word will be used during training. Max is an overused name, even kind of boring, but the hardest part of a name like that is not all the other dogs turning when they hear the name-the hardest part for your dog will be responding to a recall with a name like Max.
Whatever name you choose, do so quickly! Your new German puppy is waiting.
