Our guide to the best cute dog names

Cuteness. This is what makes us squeal over puppy photos, throw money away on treats and toys, and forgive our four-legged companions for pretty much any misstep. And when it comes to choosing a name, cute dog names are often first on our mind.

Cute dog names encompass everything from quaint and charming, to elegant and beautiful. The magic of this list is that most of these names can be applied to any type of dog, large or small. When picking one of these adorable names, you should think about how a name might represent your dog’s physical appearance, personality or spirit.

For male dogs, we want to start by paying homage to a classic dog name that still holds its charm today: Toby. If you want something similarly cute but more modern, we see a lot of potential in Milo for boy dogs of all shapes and sizes.

For something a little less common, why not go with Finn? Although this name works for both girls and boys, we usually see it with boys. It works particularly well for fair-haired pups given its meaning in Irish folklore.
