When coming up with this Chihuahua dog names page, we decided to offer name ideas that we felt best reflected the temperament of this breed, which is often referred to as “the little dog with the big dog attitude”.
Any Chihuahua owner will know what we mean.
And what better way to do this than to offer a listing of unique and funny names that sound smallish as well as biggish. Smallish ideas like Crouton or Pee Wee, or biggish name ideas like Barbarian, or even Moose.
This arrangement, a departure from the general
listing of canine names, breaks potential “handles” into the physical size and
the dog’s image of itself: its mental size and attitude. These groups of less
common Chihuahua dog names can help you locate the one which will fit your pup.
