Here’s a list of interesting and popular German dog names for male or female dogs.
15 German dog names and their meanings
A regal name befitting a Dachshund meaning ‘noble’ and ‘bright.’
This is a sweet name, which means both ‘noble friend’ and ‘friend of elves.’ It would suit a Eurasier.
A stately Giant Schnauzer would match a name that means ‘great’ and ‘magnificent.’
The ‘father of peace’ is a name for a dog with presence, such as the Large Munsterlander.
A powerful name for a female dog, meaning ‘strength’ and ‘exalted one.’ This would suit a Great Dane.
The origin of this name is the simple colour ‘brown,’ so any brown dog, such as a German Bullmastiff, could make it work.
This means ‘free man,’ a moniker a Hovawart might enjoy.
A calm and controlled Doberman would suit a name meaning ‘peaceful ruler.’
This lovely name means ‘pearl,’ and would reflect the silken beauty of a Weimaraner.
Another great name for a Doberman, who can handle feeling ‘wealthy.’
Rolf (also Rudolf and Rudy)
Meaning ‘wolf,’ this is a name for a dog with an ancient spirit, such as the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon.
This adorably pet name is more or less translated as ‘sweetie pie.’ This is a good name for a cute little Affenpinscher.
Okay, so the Leonberger is named for its lion-like appearance, but we think it would also suit being called ‘little bear.’
The ‘shepherdess’ or ‘wanderer,’ is a graceful title for a German Shepherd.
This is a really cool name. It means ‘gray fighting maid,’ and would be a special name for a lovely Keeshond.
