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.
On her documents my Pug is named Mu Shu! Ewwwww, I could not have a Pug named for Chinese food! While walking along several days after getting her I was trying out rhyming names and stumbled upon Moomoo. She loves it, it sounded like her “Other” name and it was perfect for her charming, clownish personality. Moomoo is 11,12 or 13. She is my first pet! I ADORE HER!
I am naming my pug Kolohe since my husband is Hawaiian we have to maintain the hawaiian names.
I do have an additional question, what extras do you do during winter with your pugs, I am from Michigan too and this will be our first winter, he will be only 4 months old, do I have to be extra cautious for him to go out or any special recommendation?
If we are going to have them outside for a long time in the cold (20+ minutes) we have coats they can wear to help them stay warm. You can see my review of coats that fit pugs well on my other blog – https://www.emilyreviews.com/2013/12/true-fit-dog-coats-review-dog-coats-that-fit-pugs-gift-idea-for-dogs.html. Other than that we don’t do anything special for them. They don’t care to be outside in the cold so it’s very rare that we would hve them out very long anyway. Usually in the wintertime they go out to pee and poo and are back inside in less than 5 minutes.
