British Dog Names: 550 English Dog Names

Did you know that more than fifty breeds of dog come from England?  

You probably heard of the Old English Sheep Dog, and the English Bulldog but have you ever heard of the Talbot?

The Talbot dog was a type of hunting dog in England during the Middle Ages. 

Although it’s now extinct, it’s believed to be an ancestor of the modern Beagle and Bloodhound.

Whether your dog’s ancestry hails from the UK or not, British dog names can be the perfect choice for your dog.  

Join us as we show you the best 550 English dog names.

Choosing a Name

Believe it or not what you name your dog will have an impact on how easy it is to train them.  If you give your dog an one syllable name like Bo, it can be mistaken for the word no. This can be really confusing for your dog as you try to train them.

The same thing goes if you give them a long name.  I love the name Aloysius, which is from the British novel The Brideshead Revisited. But Aloysius has 4 syllables. By the time you finish calling your dog by name they will be long gone.

Also think about what it will be like when you need to say that name over, and over again. Are you still going to like it after you said it 1,000 times?

To create my list of British dog names, I looked for names that were British or at least sounded British and were easy to say quickly. As I discover new British dog names I will add them to the list so check back whenever you need some ideas for British dog names.
