Our guide to the best biblical dog names

If there’s one book that’s full of powerful and timeless names that fit all types of dogs, it’s the Bible. God puts a lot of significance on names, ensuring that each one is full of meaning and story, so a list like the above is a great place to start looking.

The way you name a dog naturally affects how it is perceived by others, and how you are perceived too. So biblical dog names are ideal for those who are proud of their Christian faith, and want to celebrate it with their new puppy. If you need some help picking from one of the adorable religious and spiritual names listed above, let’s take a look together.

For male dogs, let’s start with Noah. This comforting name means “rest”, which your pup will be enjoying on a daily basis! And it refers to the story of Noah, who is most well-known for building an ark that preserved his family, as well as representatives of every land animal.

Asher is another great name for both boys and girls, but we usually hear it given to boys. The name is derived from the Hebrew word osher, meaning "happiness”, so it’s a really positive and uplifting name to give to a dog. And our final pick for boys is Samson, a strong masculine name with important religious connotations. Samson features in the Bible as a champion of the Israelites.

When it comes to female dogs, we understand why Chloe is such a huge favorite with new dog owners. Meaning “green herb”, this name symbolizes new life and growth while also having a strong natural sound to it. It works so well for small and large dogs alike!

For something more explicitly Christian, we also like Trinity. This has become an increasingly popular girls name since the beginning of the 21st century, and is a cute option for dogs. And finally, we can’t help but recommend Grace. The name represents charm, goodness and generosity – such are the very traits we commonly associated with our beloved pups.
