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.

For male dogs, we completely support the rising popularity of Shadow. This works particularly well for large, dark-colored dogs, but also suits a wide variety of breeds. For us, it represents a dog that is fast, agile, independent and just a little bit intimidating. Similarly, for dark-colored boys, especially if they have white patches, Bandit also makes a great name. If your pup likes to snatch snacks from the kitchen counter, it’s even more appropriate!

And if you want a name that’s explicitly badass and really stands out, you can’t go wrong with Storm. This is a fantastic name for an alpha male with powerful attributes, a lot of energy, or a tendency to play the sheriff at the dog park.
