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.

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.

  • Madame
  • Sir
  • Professor
  • Queen/King
  • Her or His Majesty
  • Mrs. or Miss
  • Senator

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.
