Welcome to our A - Z of Cocker Spaniel puppy names!
If you've landed on this page, it's probably because you've either just given a loving home to a new puppy, or you're about to do so, and you're eager to find a special name for him (or her!).
Finding puppy names is easy, there are so many of them around, but finding that perfect one for your little bundle may prove more a little more difficult.
There are so many to choose from - the choice can sometimes be overwhelming!
To make it easier for you, I've put together hundreds of cute dog names (which seemed to take forever!) and then sorted them into specific categories for you to choose from.
No matter what you're looking for I'm sure you'll find something that's just right for your little boy or girl in our comprehensive database!
Here's a taste of what's in the directory...,
Naming a new puppy is so exciting and can be so much fun!
Many of today's dog names are suitable for both boys and girls, with the odd exception of course.
Why not browse through our list of unisex Cocker Spaniel names?
They're also split into alphabetical order, so if you prefer, you can search through them by individual letter.
If you'd like to view them alphabetically, for example, you want to see all those names beginning with the letter 'F', simply click on [F] below and you'll be taken straight to all those beginning with that letter - it couldn't be more simple!
Here are the individual links, just click on any of the letters of the alphabet.
As you're browsing through our database, I recommend you make a note and list anything special that appeals to you - try to keep your list to around 15 if you can.
If you're finding this impossible, you might need to short-list your short-list!
You'll find some helpful tips for naming your puppy nearer the bottom of this page - I recommend you read them - they may just give you the inspiration you're looking for!
All puppies are cute - there's no disputing that fact - so it's not surprising that owners often want something really cute to call their puppies.
However, take great care to make sure that whatever you choose today will suit your Cocker Spaniel tomorrow - when he's a fully grown adult!
We're often asked to give examples of cute names for puppies, suitable for both sexes, so we asked our visitors for their opinions.
Who wouldn't enjoy browsing through hundreds of cool dog names?
If your dog's a cool dude, you will find just what you're looking for here.
I also felt that there are so many of them that are unique, some more original than others, and that would suit our Cocker Spaniels' personalities.
So I put together a selection of those that I thought would be relevant for either male or female Cockers and created another two separate gender lists; unique names for male dogs and unique monikers for female dogs.
Let's see if you can find what you're looking for here!
If, after trawling through our database, you still haven't found something special for your little girl, you'll find hundreds more to choose from here.
To help keep the lists manageable we've categorised them into
letters of the alphabet, so why not begin with 'A' and work your way
through to 'Z'?
Try saying each one out loud and if you like the sound of anything in particular, jot it down - this will be the beginning of your short-list.
I've also done the same for the lists for little boys.
It's sometimes difficult to choose a name for your little boy while he's still a puppy as there's the 'danger' that you're tempted to choose something that won't suit him when he's a fully grown male dog.
Most names for male dogs suit young puppies, (for example Cookie, Baby, Benji,) but you need to be happy to call him by that name when he's a fully grown adult Cocker too - if you are, that's fine.
Choosing something for your little boy is a personal choice - go for it!
While you're looking through these lists of wonderful dog names, you might like to bear the following tips in mind to ensure you make the best possible choice.
Puppies were traditionally given names to reflect their particular characteristics, such as, Spot, (spotty dog) Rover, (always wandering and roving around the district) Blackie, (erm, a black coat perhaps?) or Patch (...a patchy coat?).
Today, however, they're a little more cosmopolitan and sophisticated!
Puppies are now being named after foods, such as; Biscuit, Souffle, Honey, and Almond.
They're also being named after humans, such as; Charlie, George, Max, or William, or cute sounding names, like Tinkerbell, Furball, Fluffy, or Chi-Chi.
However, there are some things you might like to bear in mind when choosing:
