Congratulations on bringing home a new canine companion! Now here comes the hard part (and also the fun part) – naming your pooch. No matter what dog breed your new furry friend is, if you enjoy Harry Potter, then there are plenty of names to choose from. So, take a look at the 50 best Harry Potter dog names.

Naming your new puppy

So, you’re bringing home a new puppy, and you don’t know what to name it. Naming your doggo is an important process, but it’s also one of the most fun. You can allow your puppy to name themselves if you’re torn between a few different ideas. For example, call the dog different names and see which one they respond to the most. Puppies will reply to certain sounds and syllables.

Just be sure the name isn’t too similar to someone else’s, favorite toy, or common command. You don’t want them to get confused. You can also wait and see their personality a little bit before choosing a name to compliment them. Or, if you’re a pop culture fan and love Harry Potter, there’s a lot of inspiration to be found.
