If you’re looking for a dog name that expresses independence, it’s probably because you see your boy as a free-thinker. Some people want lap dogs, but you’re just happy for your pup to explore the world, however it may choose to do so.
These strong, independent dog names will serve your boy well long after puppyhood. To make it a bit easier for you to decide, here are our picks.
For male dogs, we think Ranger is a powerful, authoritative name that represents a dog who was born to find his own way. If you want an edgier pick with a cultural flair, you could opt for Marco, after the famous Venetian explorer Marco Polo, who travelled along Asia’s silk road in the 13th century.
For something a little more on the spiritual side, we also love the idea of naming a boy Spirit.
