German Shepherd Dog Names
Unique Names For A Wonderful Breed


Looking for unique German Shepherd dog names to match your unique GSD? That’s understandable considering how many owners name their pups typical titles. Choices like “Lucky” or “Fluffy” are so over used that when called out at your local dog park, all pups come running!

So this page offers ideas that are a bit different, and well, might even be spelled a bit differently. But then of course, you did come to this page looking for “unique” ideas, didn’t you?

There are really lots of great choices which are unusual and different which befit a large pup like a German Shepherd. The trick is to think of the right one for your furry four-legged friend, knowing it will stick with him or her for all its lifetime. However, you don’t want to choose one which is so odd that people will not understand your pet’s name or you will become tired of calling him or her by it over time.

Extra-long ones are not great choices either because who wants to call “Sir Galahad Knight of the Round Table” to get a response from their pooch when a short choice like “Sir” or “Galahad” or even “Knight” will work just as well and be much easier to speak and for your pup to hear.

Allegro: This girl’s moniker means “cheerful or happy” in several languages of the world. This canine tends to be both cheerful and happy in their day to day lives when treated with the love and respect they deserve.

Axel: This masculine German Shepherd dog name means “father of peace” and would be a great choice for a breed which is quite peaceful unless provoked by a threat to their humans or property.

Babushka: Russian for “grandmother” this girl’s identifier would be great to indicate you expect your pet to live long and, if breeding responsibly, perhaps become a mother and grandmother over the years. Call her Babs for short.

Delta: A letter of the Greek alphabet, a symbol in editing for change, as well as the fertile plain at a river’s mouth, this choice works best for females even though some males have been given this.

Fandango: A fancy Spanish dance, this masculine choice will remind you of your pooch’s welcome-home dances and joyful romps in the grass with you.

Gerda: Meaning “protector”, this is exceptional for a lady of large, protective breed because she will place herself between you and any threat to ensure you are protected from harm.

Konig: A German word for “king” which would suit your male canine companion very well. These stately dogs have the power and presence of royalty.

Nixie: This selection means “nymph or pixie” and, while this breed is not pixie-like, they move with the agility and grace of one of these mythical creatures.

Sternchen: Meaning “star” in German, your four-legged quadruped will be one of the stars of your life as she greets you as you return each day.

Zeppelin: This term refers to a huge, lighter than air helium filled form of transportation once used as a means of transoceanic travel.  The words would certainly make a unique German Shepherd dog name for either gender.
