Not to worry, we have you covered! We’ve provided a list of 220 suggestions for names for your new Cockapoo friend below to pick from—or from which you can draw inspiration to come up with a name of your own.
What Makes Cockapoos Unique
First, let’s have a look at what makes Cockapoos unique and stand out from other breeds, as certain qualities and characteristics of the breeds may help narrow down your search for the perfect name.
Cockapoos are what is known as “designer dogs”, meaning that they are not a true breed, but rather a hybrid of two purebreds—Cocker Spaniels and Poodles, in this case. They can range in size from miniature or toy to medium-sized, depending on the breed of poodle that is used to create the hybrid. They all tend to exhibit a shaggy, wavy coat of varying colors. You can find Cockapoos of almost every color and combination, with the most common solid colors being chocolate, black, red, apricot and cream.
