Pug Names
Unique Naming Ideas For One Unique Dog

This Pug names page is dedicated to one of the most interesting dogs in the canine world. A pup that's not only interesting in appearance, but also with a personality that puts other dogs to shame.

Lazy Pug watching you

If you’ve owned a Pug for awhile you no doubt can attest to their occasional stubbornness, but also to their amazing spunk and comical side as well.

Although we’ve never owned one ourselves, we’ve have had some interesting encounters with them and have fallen head over paws in love with their humorous antics as well as their high energy that propels their doggie cuteness.

Here’s some additional facinating facts that show there’s more to this pooch than just good looks…

-The Pug is said to have originated in 16th century China, and came to Europe via sailors working for the Dutch East India Trading Company. From Holland the breed spread thru out Europe then conquered the world.

-They’re great family dogs that need minimal exercise. Watch when you do though, as like small compact cars, Pugs can easily overheat. But keep water in their radiators and food in their gas tanks and they’ll run for miles!

So what you’ll find on this Pug names page is a few suggestions for Pug dog names that we felt would fit well on this pup, then some gender specific lists then more creative naming ideas towards the bottom.
