Funny Mexican Dog Names For Goofy Dogs

The best Mexican name for your pup will be just as unique and fun as they are!  

Mexico has a bunch of creative slang words used between friends – and since your pup is obviously your BFF, a name like Ese or Carnál is a perfect pick. Is your Pit Bull just the best, coolest dog in the world? Call him or her Chido or Neta, which both refer to something that’s super cool or supremely good (which, if we’re being honest, describes all dogs)!

You might notice that some of these Mexican names end with a suffix “-ito” (for a boy) or “-ita” (for a girl). This usually signifies that something is especially small or cute. So, any of the names ending in -ito or -ita are perfect choices for small dogs. 

Lastly, remember to pay attention to the different variations for female and male dogs! 

Bandita“bandit” in Spanish (for a female)

Mexican Dog Names Inspired by Animals

Another wonderful source of inspiration for dog names comes from the animal kingdom. Your dog might possess certain characteristics in their appearance or personality that remind you of a certain animal. Give it a spicy twist by using the Spanish word instead! 

Your swiftly sprinting Greyhound could be Gacela (meaning “gazelle”), while an always-snoozing St. Bernard could be Perezoso (meaning “sloth”), or Perez for a shortened, fun option. 

Your dog’s specific breed can also serve as inspiration for his or her name. Mariposa, meaning butterfly, is such an adorable name for a Papillon (which is the French word for butterfly). Lobo (wolf) is a perfect pick for dogs like Huskies or Alaskan Malamutes. 

You can also choose a Mexican name of an animal that is related to your dog’s appearance. For example, if your dog has a stripey or brindle coat, you could call him or her Tigre, meaning tiger; Toro (bull) is a fitting name for any pup that is of the bully breed variety.

Colorful Names for Your Canine Amigo

There are many popular dog names derived from colors. But some of them might seem a bit too commonplace for your dog’s special personality. Instead, try using the Spanish word for your color of choice! It gives a creative twist to a possibly overused name. 

For example, an Irish Setter could be called Cobre instead of Copper. Your blue-eyed puppy would make an adorable Azul. 

Many of these names will work for either a boy or girl dog. But, remember that in Spanish, words can be feminine or masculine – so be sure you choose the right version for your puppy.  

Azul“Blue” in Spanish
Blanca“White in Spanish” (female)

Dog Names Inspired By Classic Mexican Drinks

margarita cocktail

Let’s be honest, who hasn’t occasionally been inspired after a couple of cocktails? Margaritas and Tequila are almost synonymous with Mexico, and either is a fun option for your spunky pup! But, the fun doesn’t stop there! Here are even more dog name ideas based on popular drinks in Mexico. 

Is your pup always up for a chill, good time? “Chela” is a Mexican slang word used for “beer” that is more unique and (in our opinion) cooler-sounding than cerveza – the actual Spanish word for beer.  

If you’re not a fan of alcohol, there are plenty of other great names here. Imagine a cream-colored Lab named Horchata, or a sweet Chihuahua named Jarritos, after the popular Mexican soda brand. It doesn’t get cuter than that!
