Are there moments in your life when you would like to change your name? Have you ever wished to be named after your favorite superhero or personality?

Names, no matter how common they are, really do matter to many of us. It is a topic we seldom talk about, but it is sentimental that it stays with us throughout our lifetime.

Surely, you also spent your precious time delicately thinking about the name/s you would give to your adorable pets. But, if you’re having a difficult time doing so because of the 1-2 pets to 100 names ratio you have in your head, let us try to help you out through this article.

Female and Male Yorkie Names –  Pet Names for Your Cute Toy Dog

Been there, done that! It’s really mind-boggling to select not just the most appropriate but also a catchy, cute, classy name for your dog. Your new buddy has to keep that name for the rest of his life and you have to call that name too all the time! However, it seems easier to give names to dogs than humans because we can give them names depending on their appearance. Though there is no general rule to naming your dog, coming up with his/her name patterned on skin color, size, or patches can solve your problem. Talk about that classic “Whitey”, “Patchy”, and “Oreo” dog names.

Finding the cool Yorkie dog names for our adorable, diva-like little buddies must be more difficult since they also exhibit different personalities. But we won’t let you down. Check out the following tips on how to find Yorkie Puppy names.

Finding Yorkie Puppy Names

First things first: before you come up with the name you’re going to engrave in your Yorkie’s collar and food bowl, you have to consider the fact that you, your family, and of course, your Yorkie have to live with that. So take time and ace it and for sure, they can’t thank you enough for that.

In your quest to find the perfect name, you can start by considering your Yorkie’s physical appearance. Identify the color of his/her coat. Observe and find out if s/he has a distinct pattern.

If these points are still not enough, you may level up and take into account their personality. Is your Yorkie adventurous, a bit unrestrained, or are they relaxed, like a monarch, preferring to lounge on the couch? Most Yorkies have bold personalities too, so if you happen to have one with that attitude, perhaps a mushy name won’t match. We do not really intend to discriminate names, but feeling empathy for your Yorkie will for sure make you a more caring owner.

How to Know What Name Suits My Yorkshire Terrier

In addition to the factors you may consider in finding the name that suits your Yorkie, here are some common, logistical decisions which can help for sure:

Names that sound like a command, such as “sit” and “Kit,” may not be a good choice since these could confuse your dog.

Names with one or two syllables and hard consonants can also make cool Yorkie dog names. This can give you and your dog a huge favor since these are easier to say and understand.

Funny, out-of-this-world or offensive names, on the other hand, won’t make a cool Yorkie dog name. You don’t want to embarrass yourself and your dog when he runs in the park or when you go to the mall. Tick it off the list.

Names that can be appropriate for your Yorkie when they mature may also be great choices. Calling your senior Yorkies names intended for baby ones may be inappropriate as they age.
