Tips for Choosing Maltese Dog Names

Two Maltese dogs
  1. One or two syllable names are easier for dogs to respond to and easier for you to pronounce. Try calling out "Come here Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!" three times fast... not easy.

  2. Choose a name that can't be easily confused with other words or family member names, especially common obedience commands such as 'Sit' Or 'Down'. Kitty or Brownie might not be good choices.

  3. Consider your dog's personality and match a name to it. I named my Maltese dog Marley because she's super laid back like Bob Marley. On the other hand, I named my Maltese Poodle mix Disco because he dances around on his hind legs when he gets excited.
