A German dog by origin, the Rottweiler is a large, muscular dog that is typically dark brown or black with tan markings. The breed requires little maintenance and grooming but lots of training and socialization at an early age to avoid destructive behavior in the future. Because Rottweilers can be loving and extremely loyal when trained properly, they have made many families excellent pets and even better watchdogs due to their intelligence and alertness.
Rottweiler dog names are usually chosen for one of two reasons. Either the owner wants to maintain the German heritage and will specifically choose a name of German origin, or the owner chooses to use the size and temperament to create a name for the dog. Even though these dogs are only aggressive if not well trained, they do have a certain strong look to their features, leading many to choose strong Rottweiler dog names. Others fight this stereotype by purposely choosing a name that is not in the least bit militant or aggressive. Below are some popular Rottweiler dog names to give you an idea of what people like to call these dogs. If it gives you a creative boost, that’s excellent! If not, you can simply choose one from the list for your new puppy.
