Unusual Dog Names

After Reading This Page!


What makes our unusual dog names different from the rest? And what makes them different in the first place?

The unique names listed below come from a slightly different angle than the standard, predictable Fido or Rover, yet can be the perfect fit if given to the right pup. Since you came here looking for unusual ideas that are different, what I’m talking about are ideas that are after something you eat or drink.

So what started me to thinking about things we eat and drink when coming up with these suggestions? Well, when I was young and no taller than my Daddy’s kneecaps, (I was a small boy) my first two pups were called Pickles and Taffy…two different forms of food. One of my sisters pups was called Pepper, and an old neighbor had a beautiful pure white German Shepherd she called Vodka.

Actually, with a little creative thinking one can come up with a whole bunch of interesting choices after things we eat or drink.

For a small breed how about Cupcake, Gummy Bear, Jujube, Cookie or Skittles for the dog that's a sweet rainbow of fun?

For a brown dog how about Whiskey, Bon Bon, Godiva, or Tootsie?

Other suggestions...Dumpling or Gumball for a cute small breed, or how about Espresso for the pooch that's a bit high strung?

Unusual ideas after things we eat and drink are everywhere! I’m doubtful that when titling my first two pups I was thinking about condiments and candy, yet my pals were special, and their unusual dog names will forever stay with me. Why? Because their names were as unique and as special as they were!

Which is why I’m dedicating this page to you Pickles, Taffy, Pepper and Vodka! Because of you, the world was a better place.
