Our guide to the best badass dog names

If you want your dog to be the center of attention, giving them one of these badass dog names can really help them stand out from the crowd. Badass names are also a great way to reflect your personality, particularly if you’re a fan of action movies, video games, or other forms of entertainment that feature tough, iconic characters.

The beauty of this list of badass dog names is that it’s vast, and covers all kinds of different ways that you might wish to give your dog an edge. If you want your pup to sound a little intimidating, there are names for that. Or if it’s really about making your dog seem grander than the world itself, there are monikers of truly epic proportions that will help you to reflect your pup’s striking appearance or demeanour.

We love how many strong female dog names there are in the above list. Raven is as elegant as it is powerful, and makes a great choice for girls of larger sizes. As a talking bird, the raven signifies prophecy and insight. Fabled ravens often connect the material world with the world of spirits, making this a beautiful badass dog name.

Duchess is another great choice that’s soaring in popularity with the PupNames community. This royal name is the equivalent of the male Duke, which is also well-loved for good reason. And for something a bit sleeker and more imaginative, we think Astra makes a wonderful name for girl dogs. This cosmic name simply means “from the stars”. What could be more epic than that?!
