The 50 Best Spanish Dog Names

Many dog breeds originated in Spain. These pups are Spanish Galgo, Spanish Mastiff, Spanish Water Dog, Catalan Sheepdog, or the Bichon Frise, to name a few. To stick with their origin, we’ve come up with the 50 best Spanish dog names to name your new puppy.

It’s never easy to come up with a name for your new furry friend. But, if you have Spanish background in your family, or if your pooch’s breed originally came from Spain, or maybe you like how some Spanish names sound. Giving your pup a Spanish dog name is a clever idea.

Tips for naming your new puppy

Before you start calling your new doggo the first name that pops into your head, think about it. Naming is important, even though it doesn’t seem like it is.

When choosing a name, pick something easy for your dog to respond to. For example, use sounds and more syllables to make your pooch perk their ears when they hear the name. The name should be cute and clever, but you also don’t want it to rhyme or sound similar to other names such as common commands or their favorite toy.

Finally, choose a name that rolls off the tongue and is easy for others to pronounce. If you keep messing up your dog’s name when trying to call them, they’re surely not going to know who you’re talking about.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best Spanish dog names.
