Are you looking for a smart, affectionate, energetic dog? Then certainly consider bringing home a Border Collie. These herding dogs are friendly and love to play. However, they require lots of exercise and enjoy working. If you’re planning to adopt this dog breed, consider some of these great Border Collie names.

What should you name your Border Collie puppy?

Border Collies are herding dogs. They enjoy work and are highly intelligent. So, they’re fairly easy to train. Giving your pooch a name will be easy enough for them to learn. Just be sure the name is easy to pronounce and spell. If it’s too similar to another name of a person or pet in the household, then your dog might get confused. They might not know when you’re talking to them or not.

If you can’t decide on a name, then you can let your doggo choose it themself. First, try a few different names and see which one your pooch responds to the most. Then, you can name them that and the training has already started.

If you’re having trouble coming up with a few name ideas, then you can base a name off of their coat color, where the breed originated, or their size. Or, you can take a look at some of the names listed below.
