Best Labrador Names – 100 Unique Choices

Dec 2 ·

Have you been looking for the best Labrador names? We’ve got you covered.

It’s one of the most daunting tasks when getting a new dog. Maybe you’re picking your dog up from a breeder and they don’t have a name yet. Maybe you’re adopting a dog and wondering if you can change their name, because it doesn’t resonate with you (you can, by the way). Either way, you know you’ll have to pick a name that’s going to be good for the rest of their life.

It’s the name you’ll yell at the dog park, the name they’ll call at the vet’s office — you want it to fit!

So how do you pick? Some people pick their dog’s name based on their color, some people pick based on their personality, and others have a name they love already picked out. One of the best things to do, however, is consider your dog’s breed. Breeds have distinct traits that may inspire a name for you, and they’re a great place to start.

Whether you have a golden Labrador or a black Lab, we have the best Labrador names listed here that you can use.
