Tried everything? Didn’t like aunt Mollie’s suggestion? And you still cannot come up with a decent name for your new puppy. Don’t despair. Help is only a few clicks of your mouse away. There is another way to see even more name selections than on the most often visited dog name websites: Dog name creators.
As the name implies, dog name creators promise an easy and convenient way of finding a good name for a new puppy. But can and do they keep their promise? Not necessarily. Many dog-name generators are nothing more than websites with lists of dog names sorted by any number of categories. They still require a dog owner to select the characteristics he or she wants to consider before they offer a choice of names.
Some simply list dog names in alphabetical order, others cater to the gaming crowd by providing dog names to them (which you can, of course, apply to your own dog as well), and better name creator sites look very much like the best sites for selecting names for German shepherds.
The title ‘dog name generator’ is, in fact, misleading to a certain degree. Dog name creator sites found by Google look suspiciously just like the best dog name site. They let you search for dog names by categorizing your new pet according to size, breed, color, personality and many other relevant categories. Within each of your original selections, one can choose again from the same categories to narrow the field of potential dog names. Repeating this pattern a few times will eventually yield a relatively small list of suitable names for your German shepherd or any other dog.
Don’t let dog name creators mislead you. Stick with well-designed websites to find your ideal dog name.
