Tips for naming your goldendoodle
Before you decide on a name for your goldendoodle, here a few things to keep in mind:
1. Consider choosing a name with two syllables. As Chloe and I researched names, I was reminded that dog experts recommend two-syllable names because they allow for more inflection and emotion. (With a few exceptions, all the names in our lists have two syllables.) For more information on the science behind naming your dog, read Modern Dog’s The Science of Choosing a Dog’s Name.
2. Avoid names that resemble cues or commands that you’ll be teaching your dog. (For example, “Stacy” and “stay” and “Layla” and “lay.”)
3. Think about the type of name you love. Do you like unique names, classic names, descriptive names? We’ve included a variety in the lists below.
4. Say the name out loud to see how it rolls off the tongue.
5. Sleep on it! See if the name you’ve chosen still “fits” your pup over time.
