Clever dog names are fun, witty options when naming your pup. Get ready for 50+ ideas that will instantly bring a smile to your face!
As you look for ideas, we should note that there’s nothing wrong with giving your dog an ordinary name. Plenty of people choose options like Buddy, Rocky, Bella, Lola, Max and Lucy.
I love that we picked the name Toby for our Labrador Retriever – it does fit him perfectly – but I was surprised to find out that he was one of three dogs named Toby at our doggy daycare. (To differentiate, they call him Big Toby since he’s 115 lbs.) I guess that’s just what happens when you give your dog a popular name.
If you want to give your dog a truly unique name, however, clever dog names are always a good option. They will make people laugh and add a little bit of joy and humor to the world.
Before we begin, however, let’s define clever. I hate to use the cliche of whipping out a dictionary definition – but I am.
According to dictionary.com, clever is defined as “mentally bright; having sharp or quick intelligence; able” and “showing inventiveness or originality; ingenious.”
With this in mind, our list of clever dog names ranges from punny and humorous to inventive and original. Check it out!
