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.

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.
