Popular, Adorable, And Creative Goldendoodle Names

You have your beautiful Goldendoodle puppy reserved, you’ve bought all the supplies you need, and you’re almost ready to collect your fluffy bundle of joy. All you need now is a name for your new family member!

Well, you’re in the right place! 

In this guide to Goldendoodle names, you’ll find a moniker to suit every puppy. To inspire you, we’ve included the best male Goldendoodle names and some totally cute female Goldendoodle names, too. 

Read on to discover the best name for your Goldendoodle puppy.

How Do You Pick The Right Name For Your Puppy?

Sometimes, a good breeder will choose a name for every puppy in a litter. But most times, that fun, exciting job is left to the puppy’s new owners. So, how do you pick the right name for your puppy?

Let’s find out!

Goldendoodle Name Trends

As with baby names, dog names come in and out of popularity. So, there will be a trendy name or two around when you buy your puppy.

If you love the name, that’s great; go ahead and choose it for your puppy. Just be aware that you might find a dozen other Goldendoodles with the same name at the dog park!

Use A Baby Names Book

Often, you can find inspiration for a good puppy name in a baby name book. These books contain hundreds of names, typically with their meanings, too.

Brainstorm

A great way of choosing your pet’s name is to have a few friends and family around and brainstorm ideas.

Often, someone in the group will come up with a brilliant name idea that no-one else even considered. Why not get the kids involved by offering a small prize to the person who finally comes up with the puppy’s name.

Make a list

As name ideas come to you, make a list of them so that you don’t forget any. 

Perhaps put the list on a board in your kitchen so that family members can add to it whenever they think of a good idea for a puppy name.

Draw From a Hat

Once you have a list of potential names for your Goldendoodle puppy, how do you decide which one to pick?

Why not make an occasion of the name-choosing event by inviting everyone round who made suggestions?

Write all the names on pieces of paper and put them into a hat. Ask someone to draw a name out. How exciting!

Flip a Coin

If you’ve managed to narrow your name search down to just two final contenders, an exciting way of choosing your puppy’s name could be to flip a coin to decide.

Factors To Consider For Your Goldendoodle Name

When choosing your puppy’s name, there are a few important factors to consider:

Keep It Simple

Although Goldendoodles are intelligent dogs, don’t pick a long, complicated name unless you can use a short abbreviation.

Ideally, you want a short name with a maximum of two syllables. That’s easy for your puppy to learn and quick for you to shout!

Imagine you’re in the dog park and you need to call your dog. You don’t want a long name that takes forever to say and will be carried away in the wind.

Avoid A Name That Resembles A Command

Don’t choose a name that sounds like a command.

For example, “Dray” sounds very much like “Stay!”

So, if you’re calling your pup to come to you, he might completely misunderstand what you want and remain obediently rooted to the spot!

Can You Pronounce Your Goldendoodle’s Name?

That sounds strange, but it’s amazing how many dog owners pick a name that they find hard to pronounce. 

Make sure you can say your puppy’s name easily and without hesitating or stumbling over it. After all, if you can’t say your dog’s name, how on earth can he be expected to learn and understand it?!

Does Your Dog’s Name Have An Easy Nickname?

If you have your heart set on a long name for your puppy, does the name have an easy, abbreviated version that you can use?

Nicknames are especially useful if your dog has a fancy show name. 

A white Labrador Retriever named Milly stares at a dog bone collection which is arranged in a way that spells out his name

For example, “Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot” was the show name of a Scottish Terrier that won many prestigious showing classes during her life. That pooch’s nickname was “Sadie,” which is much easier and clearer to say.

Avoid Human Names

Although it might be amusing to name your dog after someone you know, that can be offensive to some people and is best avoided. 

Similarly, naming your puppy after a public figure can also upset some people. 

Also, human names are incredibly common for dogs, and that can be confusing at the dog park or the veterinary clinic.

Avoid In-Jokes

There might be an in-joke going around that you find very funny and you might think makes an amusing name for your dog.

But is that joke still going to be funny in 10 years’ time?

Don’t Pick Similar Names To Other Members Of Your Household

I would advise you to steer clear of names that sound similar to those of other people in your household, including pets.

Naming your puppy Ria, when the family tabby cat is called Tia, is asking for lots of confusion!

Why Picking the Right Name for Your Dog Is So Important

Your Goldendoodle could live for up to 15 years, longer in some cases, so it’s essential that you choose the right name for your dog.

Basically, your dog’s name is the signal you use to tell your pet when you want him to pay attention to you. So, the name you pick must be easy for your pup to learn and clear enough for him to understand even amid a melee of barking or on a windy day at the dog park.

How Long Will It Take My Goldendoodle to Learn His Name?

When teaching a puppy to respond to his name, it’s really down to consistency in training.

Don’t mix and match names! For example, don’t call your puppy Buddy one minute and Bud the next; you risk confusing your pet.

Goldendoodles are bright and intelligent, so you can expect your puppy to learn his name in a matter of days or two weeks at the most.
