Our guide to the best intelligent dog names

Dogs are pretty damn smart. It’s one thing to learn a wide variety of tasks and commands, and understand human communication. But dogs excel over other species in the way they’re able to understand and interpret human emotions, and even assist people with disabilities.

Studies have shown that dogs have cognitive abilities similar to those of a 2-year-old child, and some breeds are considered to be more intelligent than others. One of the most magical things about having a dog is just marveling at their intelligence. And if you have a Golden Retriever, Border Collie or another smartass breed, one of these intelligent dog names might be just too good to resist.

For female dogs, we think Curie is an adorable name for a pup, and is inspired by the first woman ever to win a Nobel Prize, Marie Curie.

If mythology appeals to you, why not name your girl after the Roman goddess of wisdom, Minerva? It might sound like a mouthful at first, but you get the opportunity to give your pup a nickname – Minnie! And finally, if you’d prefer something a bit more exotic, Sana is a beautiful female name that means “brilliance and intelligence”.
