It depends on the breed, but dogs can be alive for many years — going as far as fifteen or twenty. That means when you pick up your new dog, you want to make sure they have a name that you’ll love for that long. It’s the name you’ll hear called at the vet’s office, the name you’ll say over and over again for recall. It needs to stand the test of time. These are the best dog names that start with J.

Many breeders suggest you pick a name before you picked up the dog, so the breeder can start using the name and getting them used to it. If you’re adopting, this won’t be an option, but you’ll still want to settle on a name quickly after getting the dog. Giving them a name can give them a sense of familiarity in this new strange place, especially if they didn’t have one before.

There are many things you can base a new name on: color, personality, different languages… or letters!

Here are the best dog names that start with J.
