Long gone are the days of naming your petite pup something predictable like Tiny or Peewee — how about a standout name like Thumper, Webster or Clementine instead?
The best part of naming a small dog is the multitude of choices. You can base your pup's name on small things, things that sound small, words for small or small things in foreign languages... you can even go nuts and make up impressive-sounding but completely ridiculous names. Sky's the limit.
The important thing is to take your time and choose a name that really suits your little munchkin (which isn't on this list but would still make a cute name). Got a new puppy? Test out a few different ones until you find just the right fit for your new pup's personality.
