Beagles are among the most loveable and adorable breeds out there. If you’re the lucky owner of one or are about to be, you are probably looking for inspiration for your dog’s name.
As you can imagine, there’s a multitude of names to choose from, and finding the right one that truly suits your pup can be an important decision. You’ve come to the right place, as we have a list of names that you can pick from. We hope that one of these will be the perfect fit or at least give you more inspiration.
How to Name Your Beagle
Here are a few tips on how to pick a name for your Beagle.
Start with your Beagle’s appearance. Most Beagles are tri-colored, but some are bi-colors with lemon, red, or chocolate. Perhaps your Beagle has a distinctive marking that can give you a few ideas.
Also, consider your favorite artists, musicians, authors, or actors. What are your favorite movies, books, and TV shows? Some of the best names can come from fictional characters or even from mythologies, food, or video games.
Finally, look at your dog’s personality. Sometimes a funny quirk or an overall temperament trait can help you choose a name.
There is so much to think about, so let’s get into the names.
Female Beagle Names
Here are many possible names for female Beagles, but feel free to use these with either sex. These are just more traditionally feminine sounding.
Male Beagle Names
Here are names for your handsome but sweet male Beagle. A few of these are gender neutral, so feel free to consider them for your female too.
Names Based on Color and Patterns
You can use your Beagle’s coloring or pattern as a way to find a name for your pup. For example, Patches is a common but great name for a Beagle.
Names Based on Traits
These are ideas for names that can be based on your Beagle’s personality or quirky traits. These can include how much they howl (we all know how vocal Beagles can be!) or their happy dispositions.
Names Based on Nature
Beagles and nature go together like apples and cinnamon. Beagles love to sniff and explore everything they come across. Investigating every sound and movement is an inherent part of their nature. So, it’s only natural to think about nature-related names for your Beagle.
Names Based on Food and Drinks
All dogs love to snack, and many foods and drinks would make great names! Some are cute and others are funny, but maybe one will be just right for your Beagle.
Names Based on Famous Beagles
There are many famous Beagles out there in movies and TV. You might not have heard of all of these dogs, but perhaps one of them will make a fun name for your own dog.
Names Based on Fictional Characters
Finally, these are random but awesome names from fiction. There are a few gods and goddesses, along with famous sleuths because Beagles are known for sniffing things out.
Use Your Imagination!
Keep in mind that this list of names is not meant to be exhaustive, but hopefully, we’ve given you a few ideas as to what you might be looking for.
Of course, you can give your Beagle any name that you want, but remember that you’ll be calling for your dog out loud and in public on occasion, so be sure it’s a name that you can live with.
You could also add a title or honorific to your dog’s name. This is a fun way to add pizzaz to what is sometimes a regular or traditional name.
Here’s where you can truly use your imagination. Try names like Dame Lemon Jello or Sir Whiskey Sour!
Now you have a ton of new name ideas for your Beagle! These hounds are hunting dogs, so remember that you can use names that refer to the great outdoors in some way or to the Beagle’s nature-loving personality.
When you have a name or two that are contenders, try saying it out loud, imagining that you’re calling your dog. You can try, “Molly, come here!” or even, “Orion, drop it!” for example. Hearing it out loud like this can help you decide if the name is suitable or if you should keep looking.
We hope that if you haven’t found a name for your Beagle anywhere on our list, you at least have gotten a bit of inspiration and will come up with the perfect name on your own. A Beagle is a wonderful dog that deserves a great name that will make you both happy.
