The French Bulldog, Papillon, Beauceron… all of these dog breeds came from France. There are many other French dog breeds out there, and if you have one at home (or you plan on bringing home a new puppy), you may have considered naming them after their origin. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the 50 best French dog names.

How do you choose the right name for your puppy?

If you haven’t brought home your new puppy yet, chances are you’re already thinking of some names. While it’s a good idea to have a name picked out already before you bring home the dog, it’s also good to get to know their personality a little bit. Your dog won’t know their name right away, so you can play around with some different names.

Maybe your dog is more of an “Aubin” than a “Bruno.” Also, you can try out different names while they’re young to see which ones they respond to. If you’re torn between a couple of names, try using them all, and your dog will pick its own name.

Now, let’s get onto the list of French names.
