125 Cute Boy Dog Names

There are people who like dogs, and then there are dog people—can you guess which camp the Drummonds land in? 😂 Ree and Ladd have seven (!!!) pups on the Pawhuska ranch, and Alex has George the golden floof. Mind you, Ree even called George her grandkid—and did you see the video of when Ree met the puppy? Too cute!

Ree is an expert at picking out the best boy dog names. Walter, Fred, Presley—could they get any cuter!? Actually, yes! The Drummonds are also whizzes at coming up with the sweetest, silliest nicknames. For instance, Henry goes by “Henry the Great” or “Schlumpers” around the house. And Duke is affectionately called “Dukie.” And Rusty—well, Ree says he smells like Fritos so maybe that could stick as a nickname!

If you’re stuck on what to name your new pooch, Ree’s prized pups can certainly serve as inspiration. We’ve also rounded up a huge list of other suggestions. They include classic names that never get old, as well as creative ones inspired by characters from ’80s movies or some of the best TV sitcoms.
