Poodle names can be as varied and unique as the people who own them. Some trends include emphasizing their sophisticated and intellectual nature, their French and German origins, or the dogs' defining characteristics such as personality or looks.
Poodles are considered a highly intelligent and sophisticated breed of dog, and this is often honored in graceful names like Bella, Victoria, Lady, Princess, Butler, William, Gwyneth, Madeline, Ludwig or Samson. Another popular way to name a poodle is to use a name that reminds the owner of a favorite thing or person.
Another trend involves names that relate to their cute and cuddly looks, such as Fluffy, Cuddles, Patches, Bear, Nibbles, Cotton, Scruffy, Chipper, Pebbles or Chewy. Food names are popular for poodles with names like Pork-chop, Waffles, Pudding, Noodles, Cinnamon, Popcorn, Chile, Bubblegum, Chocolate, Pretzel, Milk Shake, Mango, Butterscotch, Fudge, Lollipop, Cookie, Peanut and Oreo.
Ace, Bullet, Hot Shot, Rocket, Mercedes, Speedy, Comet, Thunder, Thumper or Zippy show off a poodle's adventurous side, while Jeffery, Sebastian, Winston, Richard, Gaston, Mozart or Bruno give a hint of manly class and status.
Isabella, Anna Bell, Precious, Brittany, Lucille, Daphne, and Juliet are elegant traditional female poodle names, and some silly fun names include Krispy, Pumpkin, Ruffles, Puddles, Scooter, Sparkly, Spock, Wookie, Lassie, Popeye, French Fry, Wiggles and Cupcake.
