Badass Pit Bull Names for Males and Females

Updated on January 25, 2017

Know the Pit Bull Breed

Pit bulls make wonderful family dogs, despite their unfair reputation. This breed gets a bad rap from the media even though any breed of dog can attack a person at any time. The truth is, pit bulls are excellent guardians and the perfect security system (take that, ADT Security)! Don’t let their tough outward appearance fool you; many have a loving heart and just want to be a part of a family that will love them back. They are highly intelligent, strong, and very loyal when raised in a loving environment.

The key to finding the perfect name lies in knowing your dog. When it comes to naming your new pup, pay close attention to the dog’s mannerisms and overall behavior. Though pit bulls' names are often based on their rugged appearance, it is important to take a deeper look into those puppy eyes and find that sweet personality lying within. This is where you will find the best inspiration for the perfect name for your new furry friend.

Just in case you need help in the naming process, we have compiled this categorized list of names. Hopefully, you won’t need to look any further!

Let Your Pup Pick Its Name

There are so many names to sift through, as you can clearly see. The process can be overwhelming, so we have prepared the following list of tips to help pick a name for your pit bull. The best part is that all of the methods mentioned below involve your pup in the name-picking process. It’s only fair since they will have to hear that name for the rest of their life!

  • Call out names. If you are stuck between a few names, sit in a room that the dog is not in and begin to call out names with 20 second pauses between each name. If your dog comes to one of the names, then that might be the perfect one!

  • Use index cards. Take a few index cards, say, five or six, and write different names that you like on each one. Place a piece of dog food or a treat on each one and then let Noname into the room. Watch as s/he picks the name; the index card that s/he eats off of first is the one.

  • The whole family can help. If there is an argument amongst family members on names, this is a good, fair way to solve the problem. Form a large circle around the dog, but do not get too close because you don’t want to scare it! Each family member should start calling the dog by the name they want it to have. If the dog goes to someone, that person's chosen name becomes the dog’s.

  • Pee on trees. This makes for a really funny story later, but it only works with male dogs who have learned to lift their leg. Tack a different name to each tree in your backyard and let your pit bull out to go potty. If he pees on a tree with a name, that becomes his name!

Letting your dog help pick the name might save you time and a headache if you are really stuck between names.

Once you do finally have a name picked out, help the dog get used to the name by giving it a treat each time it comes to you when called. He’ll be running to you every time before you know it! Dogs catch on pretty quickly, so only do it until it is clear that it has learned the new name.

      Kiser 10 years old 10 months ago

      Kiser is a sweet but very tough Pittbull that has so much love to give and he gets alot of love in return. I make my son share him with me, LOL. Kiser comes to visit for a couple of weeks at a time. That's about as long as my son can be without him! When he looks deep in your eyes you can just see the love he has for you. He's older now and has slowed down but we have made many memories. We will always love you Kiser!!!

      We've had Diva, Dolla, Seven, Zeus, Duke, Dairy, and Kora. Whenever we had puppies the would always get mythological names before being adopted out. A brindle puppy we had once was very spunky so I named her Fiesta but it was changed to Barbie by her new humans ;-;

      Good information in the article. I had a female named Rodeo. Then came Diamond, named by previous owner. From Diamond came Thunder, Number One, and Ace (males), and MatrieDe and Rubidoux aka Ruby, Doobah, or "The Rube". I've also had Handsome, Amadeus, Ben( males) and Tasha, Kayla, Marmaduke aka" Dukeness", and Sealy (females) oh, and Frisker from a children's book called Frisker the lonely puppy. (He was last of the litter to be taken)
