The 50 Best Indian Dog Names

Many dog breeds are from India. For example, the Rajapalayam Dog, Mudhol Hound, Kombai, Kanni, and Indian Spitz originated in India. So if you get a pup from India, or maybe your family is from there, consider naming your dog after these roots. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of the 50 best Indian dog names for you to choose from. 

How to name your dog

Naming your new furry friend is an important process, but it’s also one of the fun steps. It may be difficult to decide on a name, so here are some tips to help you and your family decide.

If you can’t agree on one name, wait a little bit and see what your puppy’s personality is like. One of the names might suit them better than the others. Or, you might come up with a new name idea altogether. Alternatively, you can call your pup the different name options and see which one they respond to most. This will allow them to pick their own name and begin the learning process quicker.

When choosing names, be sure they don’t rhyme or sound similar to another name in the family or a common command. Your dog’s name should be its own, and you don’t want them to get confused.
