Giving a name to your puppy can be great fun and requires very little effort. Ideally, the name should reflect the dog's breed, characteristics, and physical appearance. Sometimes, people like to name their pup after a particular event or occasion, like a dog born on Easter Sunday may be named Easter. Also, quite often a puppy is named as per its place of origin, like an Irish Setter might be given an Irish name like Liam. You should choose a name that is easy and will make your puppy happy whenever you will call him/her. While selecting a name, always keep a few things in mind, like the name should have some degree of individuality to it, and it should also have at least two syllables as a one syllable name may confuse your dog. For instance, if you name your dog Lass, he will quite likely get confused whenever he hears the words 'last' or 'glass'. Similarly, calling your dog Hail might sound like 'heal' or Noah may be confused with the command 'no'. Again, keeping a name of more than two syllables may make it difficult for the dog to learn and recognize it.
Make sure that the name is not very long or difficult to pronounce as the puppy may get confused and eventually lose interest. Remember, while calling your puppy, use a cheerful and gentle voice, as this will help him/her associate good feelings with the sound of the name and he/she will more likely respond when called. Pet names like Satan, Bozo, or Tiny should be avoided as they can lead to embarrassment and raised eyebrows when called in public places. Select such names that you can call out in public. Given below are some names that you can select from.

Once you have chosen the name, call the pup with the name as frequently as possible as this will help him/her become familiar with it and respond whenever called.
