Big Names For The Little Guy

Anyone who owns a Chihuahua finds out soon that at times it acts like a big dog in a small dogs body. The way it holds it’s head and shoulders back while on backyard patrol, ready to pounce on any unsuspecting squirrels, butterflies or even Great Danes should they wander in…it doesn’t care, nor does it recognize it weighs only 6 lbs max.Realizing it’s a small, yet large dog, we offer first on this page cute Chihuahua ideas that sound small, then Chihuahua names that sound big. And for the cherry on top of the dog naming cake, we offer excellent Chihuahua puppy names further down this page that are sure to have that Great Dane running away. So here we go…

Angel: This dog title is just perfect for a sweet, dainty little Chihuahua that has an angelic face and a loyal personality.

Chili: For a male or female Chihuahua that's perfect for a pooch with a little bit of sass in it's personality. Particularly well suited for a dog that thinks it's the baddest dog on the block!

Karma: If you are a believer in Karma, this is a great choice for your sweet female Chihuahua, especially if you feel like you did something wonderful in your life in order to deserve having her as your dog.

Cash: Money represents power, and these small dogs have a lot of power and pride. Use this for a Chihuahua that has a little attitude and a lot of confidence.

ChiChi: Doubling the nickname of this dog, Chi, into this cute choice makes it suitable for male or female Chihuahua. It is easy to say and easy for your pooch to hear and respond to. It is also a common Mexican or Spanish nickname as the Chihuahua hails from the Latin lands of origin.

Rio: This term means, literally, “a river”; it is also the name of the river separating the U.S. and her neighbors to the south. As a short boy’s name, it is easy and smooth on the tongue and your Chihuahua dog will love it.

Romeo: Chihuahuas have a sweet, lovable side, so pay tribute to this adoring personality trait, by calling your male dog after the romantic character.
