It’s not always easy to find the perfect name for your pup. That’s why many of us turn to coat color for a little help. There are so many beautiful white dog breeds that we decided to come up with our favorite white dog names to help you choose! Everything from the snowy mountain tops of Antarctica to the white sandy beaches of Santorini – there are so many possibilities to choose from.

So, which will you call your new furry friend?

How To Choose the Best Name for My White Dog?

Before picking the perfect name for your pooch, there are a couple of things to think about. 

  • Does it suit them? This might just be the most important thing to think about. You need to choose a name that really embodies your pup. Do they like jumping in and out of water? Are they purely white or do they have patches? Do they love their food? These can all be inspirations for white dog names.
  • Do you like calling it? You’re going to have to call your pup’s name many times a day – often in front of other people. It’s important you choose a name that sounds good and that you can pronounce. If you’re going for a foreign name for your pup (such as an Icelandic dog name) it is also essential you know what it means.
  • Keep it short and sweet. Dogs, especially puppies, respond better to shorter names that they can understand. Try to avoid really long names with many syllables that could get confusing. Also, where possible, don’t call your new puppy a name that sounds like a command, this can make training harder.
