Our guide to the best french dog names

French culture is loved around the world, mostly for its distinct influence on art and fashion. So if you're a bit of a fashionista or you just want to make a statement, French dog names will have irresistable appeal.

Even if you're not about art or fashion, the French language just has a beautiful sense of romance to it that seems to make everything sound better. Giving your dog a French name allows you to hit that sweet spot between cute, fancy and a good dose of fun.

For male dogs, we have to start with the classic Beau. It's quite a common dog name, but for good reason, meaning 'handsome' in French and managing to be a versatile name that works for both small and big pups. If you like the trend of giving dogs people's names, we really recommend the names Louis and Leon. The latter works particularly well for large breeds, because it means 'lion' and represents bravery. For a pop culture take, why not go with Milou? It's the original French name of the dog from the classic comic book series Tintin.

For female dogs, you can give a great ode to French fashion by naming your dog Coco or Chanel. If you want a more understated French name, we recommend Sylvie or Sophie, which are both laid-back names that work just as well for dogs as they do for people. For pups on the smaller side, you can run with Fifi which is a cute shortened form of the name Josephine.
