The 50 Best Maltese Names

The Maltese look like regal pups, but they’re playful, gentle, and affectionate with their family. This pooch is okay with children and other dogs, but they would prefer their adult humans. They have a silky coat that sheds minimally, though they need a good amount of grooming. If you decide to bring home a Maltese, then look at this awesome list of Maltese names.

What should you name your Maltese puppy?

You can name your doggo whatever you want as long as the name doesn’t resemble something else, though. For example, you don’t want your dog’s name rhyming or sounding similar to another name in the home, a common command, or their favorite toy. Otherwise, if you call your pooch, they may not realize you’re talking to them if they mishear you.

In addition, make sure the name is easy to pronounce and spell. Otherwise, naming your dog is fair game. You can choose a name that has meaning to you or base your pup’s name on your favorite food or color. Alternatively, you can choose a name based on your dog’s coat color or size. The possibilities are endless.
