When getting a pug puppy, deciding what to name your pug can be tough. You want to make sure it’s something you won’t regret as they get older. Pugs are rather silly, yet sweet dogs. Due to their silly nature, it just seems weird to think about going with traditional dog names like maggie, lucky, rocky or bear. Of cousre, you an if you want…but if you’re going with a really basic name you probably aren’t going to be looking up names for pugs! So, here is my list of names for pugs. (Maggie and rocky not included!)
Overly-serious names. Going with a really serious-sounding name for a pug makes their name feel lighthearted which feels appropriate for silly pugs.
Do you have pug name ideas to share? Leave them in the comments!
PS – my pugs are Frank (male) and Beans (female) We adopted them as adults and they were named by their previous owner. However, we had originally planned to get a pug puppy and the plan was to name him Leonard if we got a boy. We never had a female name picked out. The cute puppy pictured in this post was one we just had for one day that belonged to our neighbor. Her name is Daisy.
