Top 20 Popular Names For Male Dachshunds
One man’s favorite dog name is another man’s cringe cliché. So, can we guarantee that you’ll like the following options? Not at all. But we do think you might like some of them as they are popular for a reason.
What Makes A Truly Great Name For Your Dog?
Finding the “perfect” dog name is an exercise in futility. After all, this is a wildly subjective topic. Nevertheless, there are some tips and tricks that people often cite.
For example, there is a “science” to dog names, according to some, which says that you shouldn’t anthropomorphize dogs with human names as that will “twist” your relationship with your dog. And, as far as training is concerned, there are also some tips for training that recommend short and clear names that are easy to pronounce and easy for the dog to hear and recognize.
Do such rules really matter if you only want a cute pet name, however? Is it really that big of a deal if you name your dog Johnny? Or something long such as Percival von Dusseldorf? After all, you can always shorten it to Dorfy or something similar. At the end of the day, what makes a truly great name for a dog is just how you feel about it.

What is a unique name for a male dog?
In a world with millions of pet dogs, finding a truly unique name can be difficult. If we’re being honest, even if you give your male dog a female name that still wouldn’t be “unique” as plenty of people do it jokingly anyway. Still, there are some names you’ll encounter much less often than many common ones such as Max and Rex. Here are some of our favorites:
What is the coolest dog name?
That’s purely subjective so we can’t possibly say what’s “cool” for you and what isn’t. Conventionally speaking, names such as Rocket, Hunter, Rain, Tornado, Killer, and Thunder can be seen as very cool. Or, maybe you think they are a bit cringe, we don’t know. Naming your dog after a cool and hip Holywood star may be the right approach for you or maybe you think that’s silly. Overall, the coolest dog name for us is the one that tickles your fancy in particular.
What is the rarest dog name?
This question is a bit of a catch-22, isn’t it? After all, if we know “the rarest name”, it likely isn’t all that rare. In fact, if you browse through some of the online lists of “the rarest” or “the most uncommon” dog names, you’ll actually encounter some of the most common and widely used dog names such as Ash, Arrow, Happy, Tails, Kane, and others. Are those really “rare”? Or is the rarest dog name something like Thermos or Water Bottle?
What are Dachshunds named after?
Dachshunds are most often named after food items, wieners and hot dogs, in particular, as well as candy. It’s not uncommon to see some traditional German names for them too as the breed comes from Germany.
