The 50 Best Hawaiian Dog Names

Staci
Jul 29 ·

Looking for some Hawaiian dog names? We’ve got you covered.

One of the struggles of getting a dog is figuring out what to name them. After all, they’re going to be your companion for a long time, and you want them to have a great name. It’s what they’ll call at the vet’s office, what people will hear you calling at the park…

Some people agonize forever on what to name their dog, and it’s understandable. However, the sooner you name them, the better! Dogs do get to learn their name, and you want to start as early as possible in their development. You can teach them to come when called, etc., using their name, and you’ll see a real response to it — especially if you can drill it in early.

No pressure, then!

If you’re struggling to pick an amazing name for your dog, check out this list of Hawaiian names. Whether you’re Hawaiian yourself, or want to pay homage to a place you love, you can’t go wrong with any of these beautiful names.
