Take inspiration from characters of exotic books like “Rountu”, “Atticus”, “Fell”, or “Azazel”.How about naming him after popular foreigners with exotic-sounding names like “Givenchy” (French designer), “Dali” (Spanish artist), and “Zdenka” (Czech athlete). Dogs are not only considered as a very smart animal but also able to truly understand human being via the expressed emotions towards them.

Say it out loud and think about calling your dog by it. If “heel Rumpelstilskin” seems a bit of a mouthful, you may want to reconsider.

Or try to think about giving him a nickname (in this case maybe “Rum” or “Rumble”).

There are just certain breeds of dogs that seem to require that the dog have a tough name.

It does not even matter if the dog is male or female; if a dog is of a particular breed like a Pit Bull, Rottweiler, Doberman or German Shepherd people automatically assume it should have a tough name to reflect the particular stature of the breed.

What could be cuter than a little black puppy with the name Darth (Vader)? There are already too many Bellas, Mollies, Maxes, and Buddies in the small dog world. We have compiled a list of names that work well with any breed of dog.

Maybe a name like Duke, Tonka, or Talon might be a little more unique. Gods and Heros, outlaws and fierce animals all have one thing in common, they all have to be tough, not only physical but mentally robust.You have to remember that even though your tough dog looks cute right now he or she is quickly going to grow into a dog known for being big and rugged and having a name that fits that stature just seems right.It can also help to give people the notion that they should have some respect for the breed and your dog because it is going to stand by you and protect you.If you are looking into getting a dog that is known to be as a tough breed of dog, then you may want to consider some tough dog names to give to your new pet.Breeds that exhibit a great deal of strength and toughness are well-known and dogs of these breeds seem silly if they are given cute and cuddly names that people often give as puppies.Regardless of the reason, the tough naming suggestions and lists below them are ideas that we felt would make any pup loom larger regardless of their physique or personality.
