Naming your dog can be difficult, especially if you are tired of names like “Boots”, “Spot”, and “Trigger”. Perhaps you should think about naming your dog something popular in another language. French dog names are especially handy when naming dogs of French origin but also for fashionable, sleek, small (petite), and graceful dogs, since French is considered to be one of the most beautiful, flowing languages.
Most appropriate for lap dogs or dogs originating in France (think about French poodles, French hounds, pointing griffons, and setters), French dog names can actually be used at your leisure, if you feel it fits the personality of your dog. Perhaps your miniature Pinscher is a proud dog and carries himself with an air of arrogance. Something like Andre may be an appropriate name choice.
Of course, you can’t always know just what your puppy’s personality will turn out to be, but you can still choose a name that is less common for your dog by opting for a French name. Below is a list of a few popular French dog names to give you an idea of what youcan find if you really start looking for a less popular name.
