Poodles are considered to be among the most intelligent of all dog breeds, and they also happen to make ideal family pets because of their loyal, protective nature and sociable personalities. What's great about naming poodles is that they're associated with countries like France (where they're an incredibly popular choice for pet) and Germany (where they originated)--not to mention their unique coat that comes in various colors--so the name options are seemingly endless. Here are 70 potential poodle names you might want to consider if you're bringing home one of these strong yet sophisticated dogs.

Tips for Naming Your Dog

A poodle is a truly special and unique dog breed, so coming up with a name can feel overwhelming. That's why poodle owners will want to be sure to consider factors like your new pup's physical characteristics, personality, and coat. Just like naming a child, you'll also want to consider how easy the name is to pronounce (it may be even more important when naming a dog, as you'll want to be sure that he or she is able to learn their name). Additionally, it should be a name that you'll be comfortable sharing with your friends, family, and veterinarian. Also keep in mind that you don't necessarily have to name your dog right away -- sometimes it can actually help to wait until you get to know them better before deciding.
