Many of the dog breeds that we all know and love today originated in Germany. For example, the Dachshund, Great Dane, Boxer, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd, and many more came from Germany. So if you’re thinking of German dog names for your new puppy that’s from Germany, it’s a clever way to tie them back to their roots.

Choosing a name doesn’t have to be difficult

Before you bring home your new furry friend, decide on a couple of names you and your family like. Then, you can try to call the dog multiple names and see which one they respond to the most.

Dogs react to certain sounds and several syllables, so one name you chose might suit them better than another. Or, you might get to know your pooch a little better and realize that their personality fits one name over another.

If you want to give them a German name, then you’re in luck. We compiled a list of the best German names.
