Tips for Choosing Maltese Dog Names

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