How to get a name Inspiration

You might be finding it a little challenging to decide a name for your French bulldog. Inspiration comes from anywhere, including food, celebrities, classical, heritage, etc. You should choose something you think is cool; a name that sounds endearing to you, remember it's your dog!


Take your time but make sure you come out with a right choice; pleasing to you first before anyone, you know you might also want to consider a unique name that gets people talking whenever you take your dog for walks in the parks. This is usually very exciting, watching people get surprised at the sound of the dog’s name.


Imagine calling out your dog in the park and people go; 'what?! Is that a dog name? It's so cute.' I bet you'd be so proud of your naming skills. You know you don't have to restrict yourself when naming your dog, enjoy yourself, take your time, and remember to be proud of whatever you come up with.


While you try to be creative with your naming skills, avoid names that could confuse your dog, names that might sound alike with commands you give the dog. An example is a word; 'sit,' you don't want to give your dog a name that sounds like “sit”. Dogs are innocent, confused and funny creatures. They get confused easily and this makes them extra funny. Let me give you an example, imagine calling your dog, and instead of coming to you, he sits and stares or asking your dog to sit, and he keeps coming towards you. The only thing you would be doing is confusing your dog and getting yourself unnecessarily worked up about your dog not being smart enough.  To avoid situations like this, give your dog a name that wouldn't sound like you just issued a command, keep that at the back of your mind.


Give a name that rolls out easily. This is extremely important. You would want to spend a few seconds calling the name of your dog. If you named your dog, Penelope, it takes a while to call that name, but a name like; Gus, just one syllable, and you're done; it just rolls off your tongue.


So, you might want to consider picking from the most famous names of French bulldogs aforementioned, or keeping trying out names from your creative imagination, just ensure that it comes out a nice name. Sometimes I wonder actually, if dogs actually cared about the name given to them, just as we humans do. Have an excellent time naming your dog, and I hope you come up with a beautiful creative name.
