Anyone who owns one of these adorable canines is definitely a lucky owner!

After the Bloodhound, these adorable dogs are the second-best breed at detecting scents on the ground, thanks to their great scent of smell.

Not only are Basset Hounds talented, they also make brilliant companions, and charming faces which make them look sad!

It is vital that these exceptional pets are given the best title possible, so we have put together over 600 Basset Hound Names.

From black and white male dogs, to brown and white females, we hope you find the special name you’ve been searching for since you adopted your pet.

Cool Basset Hound Names

Cool Basset Hound Names

Known for being incredibly unique pets, these dogs come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

We think the funky spots and splashes of color on their coat is very cool, and deserves a cool name!

Fresh monikers can be found all over the place, from unique aspects of nature (e.g. ‘Eclipse’ and ‘Shadow’) to geographical names (e.g. Africa) and words in cool languages like Hebrew!

We believe some of the coolest words includes lots of clashing consonants, like ‘Ajax’ and ‘Knox’, as these are not normally used as dog names.

Color names are also really fun, and we recommend them for a dog that oozes quirkiness and originality!
