118 Funny Dog Names That Will Make You Laugh [VIDEO!]

I absolutely love comedy and look for any opportunity to laugh and make others laugh. That’s why I think that naming a pet is the perfect opportunity to pick a name that makes you laugh a little bit every time you say it. Bonus points if it brings joy to other people, too.

With my first pet I wanted to pick something creative, but I was new to the whole pet ownership thing, so I chickened out and named her Zoey. Not that I regret it, because she’s definitely a Zoey, but when we got a new pup, it was time to have a little more fun.

Picking a Funny Dog Name:

When you’re picking a funny name, you want to spend a little time with your new pup to get to know their personality and notice any little quirks or funny things that they do. Think about their size, their breed, even their coloring, when you’re looking for ideas for a funny name.

I met a guy at the vet once who had two dogs – a huge one and a little tiny one that could fit in a purse. He named the little one Biggie and the big one Smalls. I cracked up. It was hilarious. So, playing with size can be really funny as well. A big dog named Biggie is not nearly as funny as a small dog with the same name. A lot of times the humor is in the pairing.

For us, we were inspired by the placement of our new furry friend’s markings. Then, once we got to know him a little better, we came up with this short list of names: Meatball, Zorro, Zuma and Oscar (his face scrunches up a little like a little grouch). After a few days, Zorro won us over and every time we say it, we smile and think about how he zooms around and hides places, loves to pop out and surprise us and looks like he has a little mask on. Sometimes I say his name with an accent, like Antonio Banderas in “The Mask of Zorro”.
