Goldendoodle dog names for all types of doods

Searching for goldendoodle dog names? Naming your goldendoodle dog is one of the most fun and creative decisions you’ll make! Whether you’re calling her name before heading out on an adventure or you’re answering the “who’s a good dog” question, your floofy dood’s name will be part of the lifelong bond the two of you share. Just wait till you get that first head tilt or ear perk when your goldendoodle responds to his name! A-dood-able!

To help you in your search for the perfect name for your goldendoodle, Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe and I brainstormed a mega list of dog names just right for furry, friendly, doodly silly , ball-playing doodle dogs. Then we sorted our doodle monikers into categories based on personality, lifestyle, and physical appearance. Finally, we had so many names that we created a  second post of all-new names that are organized by your dood’s size and fur color. You can check out more names here: 101 Goldendoodle Names That Are Adorable.

We hope you enjoy browsing our lists of goldendoodle dog names. Most of all, we hope that each time you call your doodle’s name, you’ll be reminded of the lasting love and emotional bond that comes from the joy of loving a dood…because doodles truly are “golden.”

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.

  1. Our “Charlie” isn’t a golden doodle, but he is a sweet, sassy, silly, Scottie! We glad to see his name mention in one of the lists. It’s perfect for him!

    1. Chloe thinks “Charlie” is the perfect name for her Scottie pal! Plus, doesn’t “Chloe and Charlie’ sound cute together too!

  2. After reading all these creative name suggestions, I may need another Doodle! The only name I couldn’t use from your list is Charlie. Nothing wrong with that name, but I have met numerous Charlie Doods in Tucson. I’ve stopped counting.

    1. Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe and I would be so excited if you added another Doodle to McSquare doodles! You’d be a trio of cuteness, for sure!

  3. Those are all great names and it was super helpful that you put them in dogogories. Tee hee hee. Mom suggests ‘Patagonia’ with nickname ‘Patty’ as another name for an outdoorsy kind of doodle. Winks.

    1. Thanks, Valentine! We’re happy you stopped by to visit our blog! Doodle kisses to you and your family!
