While naming a child can be somewhat stressful because people need to think about how the name works with last and middle names, how initials appear and how peers may accept it, the same stress doesn't exist with naming a dog. This means that people naming their dogs can feel free to be a bit more adventurous and creative.

Understanding a dog's heritage can help a dog owner name her puppy. For example, shepherds, dachshunds and schnauzers are of German descent, so giving these dogs a German name may be a consideration. Similarly, because wolfhounds and setters are Irish, a dog owner may choose to give her dog an Irish name.

One consideration that dog owners might want to consider before naming their dogs is how long the name is. Dogs typically respond better to one- and two-syllable names.

Other cute names for girl puppies are associated with certain themes such as wealth, gambling or cars. For example, names related to wealth might include such monikers such as Blingy, Cashmere, Caviar, Chalet, Crystal, Elegance, Emerald, Fortune, Gem, Garnet, Mercedes, Ruby or Sapphire. Someone who enjoys visiting casinos might want to check out such names as Nevada, Sahara, Paris or Stardust.

Dog owners also name their girl dogs cute names based on the names of cars. For instance, popular names include such favorites as Accent, Alpina, Audi, Cayenne, Dakota, Charade, Jazz, Jetta, Kangoo, Mini, Karmen, Lexus or Zephyr.

Fluffy is a cute name for a girl puppy with thick fur. The name Happy suits a high-spirited one, while Dottie is an ideal pick for a Dalmatian puppy. Petal, Luvpup, Crush, Folly, FooFu, Kiya and Loopo are some other attractive name choices.

Names for female puppies can be picked to draw attention to the color of the coat or to describe an uncommon personality trait. Blackberry, Eclipse, Black Rose, Twilight and Bonfire are cute names for a black female puppy. Cream Puff, Buttermilk, Carnation, Alpine, Clouds and Dazzle are pretty choices for a puppy with a white coat. Fondue, Twix, Toast, Éclair, Cuppa, Puddin and DeCaf are creative name picks for brown girl puppies, whereas Almond Joy, Moo-Moo, Half Moon and Peppermint Patty are original choices for black and white puppies.

A girl puppy can be named based on her size or her breed. Tiny, Bonbon, Flora, Sassy, Kissy, Ladybug, Roxy, Babykins and Venus are innovative options for a female Chihuahua. Bonsai, Cutie, Itsy-Bitsy, Tootsie, Girlie and Babydoll are sweet name choices for Beagle puppies. Crimson, Lily, Garnet and Lace are striking names for female Alsatian or Labrador Retriever puppies.

To choose a cute name, make a variety of themed lists including such classifications as flowers, birds, colors, gemstones and brand names. When a new puppy responds well to a particular name, that could be the right name for that dog.
