If you got your pup from a breeder and they’ve never had a name, it’s time for you to pick one. Or maybe you adopted a dog and you aren’t keen on the name, and you’re just wondering if you can change it without causing them any confusion (yes, you can!). Today we are focusing on dog names that start with A.

Picking a dog name isn’t easy, because it’s a name you’ll both have to live with a long time. There may be worries that you’ll eventually hate the name, or that it just won’t sound as good to you in a few years. Pressure’s on to pick something you’ll never get tired of saying.

You could choose color-based names, or look at different languages, but one of the best things to do is consider the human names you like. Is there a starting letter that crops up a lot?

For example, if you like names beginning with A, take a look at the best dog names that start with A. We have a handy list here for you!
