20 funny dog names for your playful pup

By Jamie Ballard, Woman's Day

If your dog has tons of personality, you need a name that reflects that. Whether your new best friend is a big ol' goofball or a bit of a princess, these silly monikers are a great place to get some inspiration for what you'll call them.


Give this to your tough-but-sweet new pup. We think Dad will especially like this name if he's a fan of Sylvester Stallone movies.


There's no better name for a energetic brown pup than Mocha. Another equally cute coffee-themed name: Joe ... as in a "cup of Joe".


If your pup is anything but quiet, we know just the name to give her.


Nellie is made for a dog who's just a little bit scruffy, don't you think?


This name is especially hilarious if your dog is a cuddle monster who would never hurt a fly.


This adorable, feminine name is for your dog who is a real lady at heart.


If you feel like your dog is secretly a wrinkly old lady, you might as well give her a name that reflects that!


This short-and-sweet Irish name is made for a dog who loves to swim - but really, doesn't every dog like taking a dip?


He's going to be your best friend, so you might as well give him a name that reflects that.


If your new dog is a big, cuddly, goofy guy, Moose is too silly to pass up.


Big pointy ears? Check. A face full of infinite wisdom? Check. Yoda is for your quirky lil' dude.


Calling all big fluffy furballs. You might as well go for a name that's literal.


Honor your dachshund's German heritage by naming him after this traditional German food.


Zuko is a funny but fierce name, making it an especially good choice for a high-spirited husky.


There's something hilarious about naming a dog something kind of, well, dorky. (Don't shoot the messenger!)


You've got to have a real sense of humor (and a really, really friendly dog) to go with this name inspired by Stephen King's classic dog movie. But we're sure it'll draw lots of laughs from friends.


Your gentle and silly pup deserves a name that brings out the cutest part of her.


If you're a foodie, you can't go wrong with a name like Ginger. It's so charming, you won't mind shouting her name across the dog park.


C'mon, this is definitely the best name for a little fluffy dog that happens to be the color of, well, a peanut.


This name is spunky and short. In French, it means "trustworthy girl from the farm," making it ideal for a sweet, soft thing.
