For thousands of years the Magyar people have been herding on the steppes of Eastern Europe. To watch their flocks, they developed several great breeds of working dogs and two of them are among the most distinctive dogs in the world.

The Puli was usually the shepherd that helped the Hungarian manage his herd. The Komondor is a lot larger dog and was bred to watch the flock and come running if help was needed.

Both dogs are very special, and both deserve an authentic name from Hungary.

As you can see from this list, a good dog name should have only one or two syllables, and it should also end in a vowel; if you follow these guidelines when selecting a dog name your Puli or Komondor will thank you for it.

If you do not like any of these Hungarian names, and choose to find a different name elsewhere, just remember to follow these guidelines and do not pick some three or four syllable word that will confuse your dog when it is time to train. There are plenty of sites listing dog names, but be sure not to pick a name that your dog will not answer to.

Do not name your dog something silly or a word that sounds just like any other dog in your household.

Also be sure not to pick and overused dog name. It may be easy to call your dog Max or Bella, but they are the most common dog names many of the dogs at the park will already be saddled with those words.

Your Hungarian dog is special. Name him something authentic and unique.

        Proper pronunciation 

        5 months ago

        If you pick a name from this page, make sure you learn the proper pronunciation. For examples, if you see an "s" that IS NOT followed by a "z" it makes the "sh" sound. "Sz" makes the "s" sound.

        They are hard to keep clean and smelling sweet... But they are so adorable and worth the effort! I have a severe allergy to all animals, except Pulis and Poodles. My last 2 Pulis died 16 years ago and it has taken that to get another pet and of course I held out until I found a Puli. You either spend loads at the poodle parlour or invest in a huge drier, as if not you can't go near them for the smell!

        Those furballs would probably be as miserable in Las Vegas as here in Brasil, Elizabeth, but they sure are cute to look at. Now when you pet your Goldens you can be thankful that they are shorthaired dogs.

        Hi Bob, it would be nice having all that hair, but imagine explaining to your wife that you only take a bath once a week since it takes so long for your hair to dry!

        These are fantastic names. Underneath all of their "fur" I can see a really cute dog underneath. And I thought golden retrievers had long hair! :)

        Interesting hub and most interesting dogs. You have a knack for introducing us to breeds that many of us have never heard of before. I'd give a lot to have enough hair to be able to cord it like theirs!

        "My dogs go swimming every night."

        That brings a lump to my throat because our labs loved to play in our pool all year long. I can't tell you how much we miss them.

        I can understand that one, Will! If you give a Komondor a bath, it takes more than two days for him to dry. A dog like that where I live would end up with a stinky yeast infection, since he would never dry out.

        My dogs go swimming every night. They have short hair, of course.

        I'm too lazy to handle a dog with that sort of coat. Give me a short hair!

        Odd looking dogs. They look like mops or something. Thanks for the enlightenment!
