Strong Boxer Dog Names
Boxers are powerful German dogs that are great with cats, super with kids, and really enjoy just hanging out with their families.
Boxers are also strong and fast men who make their living hitting other strong men.
Dogs and people are really different, but some of the names given to human boxers are great for canine boxers. This list will give you a few to choose from.
There have been a lot of good movies about boxers. Many of them have names that do not work with dogs, but here are some great choices that work.

Boxing Nicknames for Boxer Dogs
And there are also many great boxing nicknames that you can choose from:
- Bigfoot, Blade, and Bruiser
- Crusher, Dice, and Hitman
- Lightning, Macho, and Razor
- Smokin’ and Thunder
- And for a really tough dog, there is always “Wimpy”
You could always call your dog “Greatest”, of course, and everyone will know just who you are talking about!
There are a few rules when should remember when naming your puppy:
- Don’t forget to choose a name that has one or two syllables. A lot of famous boxers have names with three or more syllables, but they did not make this list. De la Hoya does not work, but Oscar is fine. Evander is not a good name to use with your new puppy, but Vander is a great way to shorten the name and your puppy will respond just like you want.
- If you have a favorite boxer in mind and he did not make this list, be sure to use that for a really special name. Just remember that dog names should only have two (or maybe even one) syllable. If you have one that you really like you should use it, of course, but be sure to find a good nickname for it.
- Do not use any name that sounds like a dog you already have. When you call your new Boxer, the older dog is going to be confused.
- Don´t give your new dog a name that sounds like one of his training commands—“Grit” sounds too much like “sit!” If you give him a name that sounds like one of his basic commands, he is going to get confused and not perform when he should. None of the dog names I have suggested in this list sound like any commands, but if you use the name of a boxer or another word that is not here, make sure it does not sound like a training word.
- Give your dog a name that commands some respect and stay away from the dog names I would not use. You might think it is funny to name your dog “Scooter” after he has diarrhea, or “Barfy” after an accident in the car. It will not be funny later when you are out at the dog park with your new puppy, and names like “Scooter” get old fast.
- Do not brand your new dog with one of the overused dog names. Your dog has a noble history, he is an individual, and the last thing he needs is to be just another Charlie or Jake. Every dog deserves a unique name!

Questions & Answers
What do think of the names ”Merlin” for a male and “Sheba” for a female?
Great names. Both of them are short, easy to use, and Sheba even has a vowel at the end, so it tends to make the dog look up even more when you call her name.Helpful 1
