Our guide to the best spotted dog names

Naming your puppy after a physical characteristic is always a nice touch. You have the comfort of knowing that it’s going to stick forever. And the joy in people’s faces when they match your dog’s name to its appearance is tough to beat.

Spotted dog names make the most of a few distinctive themes based on colour and shape. Most of these names fit like a glove for dalmatians, but they’re also flexible enough to work well with patchy pitbull terriers, cocker spaniels, German pointers and even Australian Shepherds.

For male dogs, we love Checkers. Although it was once a pretty famous name, used by Richard Nixon’s family, we still think it’s a more low-key option than something like Patches or Speckles. It has a playful side and perfectly represents the cuteness of a black and white spotty dog.

If you want something shorter, Tux is an adorable name that’s a bit more flexible and has a classier feel. Oreo is a great choice if you (or he) loves to eat.

For female dogs, Dottie is cute, classy and adorably visual, all rolled into one.

If you want something a bit more unique for your girl and have a sweet tooth, we think Sundae makes a great name for a spotty girl. And if she’s on the smaller side, Mittens makes a lovely name for a dainty female.
