Congratulations on bringing home your new German Shepherd puppy! But maybe you and your family haven’t decided on a name yet. Luckily, we’ve put together a list of some of the best German Shepherd names.

Tips for naming your German Shepherd puppy

Before deciding on a name for your puppy, there are a few things to consider. First, make sure it’s easy for others to pronounce and that it’s a name your pooch will respond to. You can test a couple of different names and see which one your puppy replies to the most. A name shouldn’t sound similar to anyone else’s name or a common command. You don’t want your puppy to get confused.

Overall, have fun with the naming process! There’s inspiration everywhere, and this list is a good place to start.
