Boxers are sturdy, stocky dogs that, while medium in stature, are built thick and tough. In fact, the muscular build of a boxer may bring to mind the physique of, well, a boxer in a ring. Boxer dog names are often chosen based on this appearance, especially in the case of male boxers. The name is often picked to reflect the (falsely) threatening appearance of the square-jawed muzzle and thick barrel chest.
Of course, boxer owners know that the personality of their dog is quite different from appearances, and many owners will choose boxer dog names that have nothing to do with the size or body type of the dog, especially for female boxers. What you may find is names in association with the color of the dog – typically a brown color ranging from a tan or smooth fawn color to a rusty brown tint.
Because of their seemingly perfect bodies, some owners choose boxer dog names related to mythology, looking for names of gods and heroes who were known for their muscular appearance and strength. If you aren’t sure what you’d like to name your boxer, take a look at the list below for a few suggestions. Even if you don’t choose one of these boxer names, they may get some creative juices flowing and give you an idea of what you do like.
