Full Answer

Since Yorkies originated in a region of England, it may be a good idea to name them something that reflects their Anglican origins. In this field, some examples of names are Scotch, Hugh or Duke.

If the goal is to name a Yorkie based on his appearance and how he is groomed, then the owner should first decide how he or she wants to groom him. If the owner plans on keeping his hair short and simple, then some good ideas for names are Achilles, Finnegan or Gabe. These are just a few examples, but there are many names that give a Yorkie a profound style that goes with his hair.

If the Yorkie is going to grow his hair long, then perhaps a more humorous name would be the best choice. Some examples are Yankee, Mopey, Winnie and Taz.
