Choosing a Boxer Dog Name

General Add comments

After you bring your boxer dog home, there is something very important that you need to do—other than get him acclimated to the house and family.  You need to come up with a name for your boxer.  Some people know what they are going to name their boxer as soon as they see him; for other people, it isn’t quite so easy.  After all, a boxer dog name is a big decision.

Statistics say that if your boxer lives to his normal life span, you will end up calling your boxer dog name between 35,000 and 40,000 times.  So, you are going to want to choose a name that is easily pronounceable.  Additionally, if you intend to register your puppy, you need a boxer dog name that is no more than 25 characters long—and that the boxer dog name needs to be unique in some way.  It will need to be different from all of the other thousands of previously-registered boxer dog names.

That really seems to put the pressure on, doesn’t it?  It seems a whole lot more difficult to come up with a boxer dog name than, say, a name for a kitten.  Here are some suggestions on how to make it easier to come up with the best name for your boxer:

•    The boxer is a German breed.  So, you could go with some sort of German name from history.  Or, choose any type of current German name, one that is still in use today.

•    Boxer dogs are quite physically strong.  You could opt for a boxer dog name that represents that strength in some way, perhaps choosing a name from the world of wrestling or boxing.

•    If your boxer has some unusual markings or flash, perhaps that can inspire your boxer dog name.  Or, the general coloring of your boxer could be used as a basis for a boxer dog name.

There are some considerations to keep in mind when choosing a boxer dog name, though:

•    You do not want to choose any name that could possibly be confusing in any way to your dog.  For instance, do not choose any boxer dog names that rhyme with any training commands that you plan on using with your dog.

•    Select a name that everyone in your household can pronounce.  If, for example, your son has problems with the ‘s’ sound (and he isn’t a preschooler), opting for a name like “Susie” wouldn’t be quite the best idea.

•    Long names are a good idea for registration purposes; however, make sure that there is some shortened version that you can use as an everyday boxer dog name.  You don’t want to have to use a 5- or 6-syllable name for your dog all of the time; that would quickly get tiresome.

If you are the type of person who likes to go for something different, you may want to stay away from these names—these are some of the most popular dog names in recent years:  Max, Jake, Sam, Buddy, and Murphy for males; and Lady, Mollie, Suzie, Maggie, and Sadie for females.

    Nicely written article. I just got a boxer a few days ago. My boyfriend and I have been trying to pick the perfect name for him. I never thought it would be so difficult. I will definitely look into German names and names that are associated with strength – those are some good ideas. Thanks!
