What Makes For A Great Puppy Name?

Now that we’ve got the classics out of the way, let’s contemplate for a second on what makes a great Yorkie name. Going with size-related names is most people’s first impulse and we certainly haven’t skipped those too – just take a look below.

Realistically, however, the idea tea cup Yorkie names are the ones that feel right to you. It can be the name of a relative or friend, the name of a favorite movie star or character, or just a funny household object – whatever you want.

Granted, if we are to delve into the psychology of dog names for a second we’ll see that the experts are advising against human names. The argument here is that anthropomorphizing your dog can lead to an unhealthy type of attachment and relationship with the pet.

The counterargument to that, however, is that anthropomorphizing your Yorkie is half the fun of having it. Besides, teacup Yorkies are hardly a “working dog breed” so your relationship with the dog doesn’t need to be exactly professional.

Another argument is that if you want to more easily train your dog, you should also choose a training-friendly dog name. This tip is worth consideration as far as we are concerned. While you won’t be training your Yorkie professionally, terriers are notoriously stubborn. So, if the proper name can help with the dog’s obedience training – that’s great.

At the end of the day, however, the right name for your pup is whatever feels like for you. All we can do is give you a few ideas and inspiration.
