A Name Often Reflect a Pug's  Personality.

Choosing names for Pugs can be very hard work. An owner may choose one only to discard it weeks later.It may take months to choose. There are so many choices. Even after making a selection, you often wonder if you made the right decision.

Sometimes, an owner's favorite food tops the list. Or, maybe a famous person is the inspiration. Some pet owners actually wait until they get the animal before choosing. They want to make a choice based upon the animal’s personality.

You want perfection for your little furry friend. On an average, a Pug lives from twelve to fourteen years. So, you want a something that both of you like and can live with. Your choice also demonstrates just how much you care about your best friend.

Pet owners often let the animl choose. You are probably wondering how a dog can choose its own name. That is exactly what my friend Karen did. She selected five names that she felt were perfect for her female Pug puppy. She made a game of choosing. She got down on the floor and played with her puppy. After a few minutes, Karen would stop and playfully called the puppy by the first choice.

Karen kept playing with the animal and trying out each. Finally, she called “Ebony”. The animal's little head turned at the sound. And, you guessed it. Karen’s baby is Ebony. It also helps that the animal is black in color.

I personally do not eat much meat. But, once every two to three months, I enjoy a T-Bone steak. When I purchased my fawn Pug, I chose T-Bone after my favorite food. I also love banana pudding, but that was not a choice.

Pin It

I have compiled a list submitted by my Pug owner friends in Texas. I will continue to up date as new selections are submitted. Just remember to choose a name that does not confuse your pet. Do not choose one that sounds like a command word. For example, if you use “No” when you want the animal to stop, do not call him “Nolan”.

How Did You Choose The Best Pet Name?
Write about it here!

Choosing a pet's name involves a lot of love and consideration. Inspiration often comes from unsual sources. My friends in Texas have shared many stories about their choices for pet names. Some of these stories are very funny. All reflex the pet owner's creativity. A really great part of our love for our pets, and this web site, is hearing from other pet owners and sharing information. So, I am really curious... How did you choose a name for your beloved pet? Share it!
