Common dog names can become quite boring if you have heard them a thousand times, human names for dogs can also get repetitive and boring.
A unique, interesting, and refreshing idea is to instead use food names for Dogs!
If you want a cute moniker, inspired by a sweet treat or unique vegetable, which will make a funny dog title, then this is the list for you!
A large and hefty dog could be given a meaty choice like ‘Bones’ to highlight their large status, but a tiny puppy could be given a nickname like ‘Beans’ or ‘Chickpea’!
There are so many food names here that we are sure one will suit every type of dog out there, it could even be a great idea to match the title to your dog’s personality and mannerisms.
Food Names for Dogs
- Basil – inspired by the spice that goes very well with tomato soup and pizza, Basil was also a fictional fox on children’s television ‘Basil Brush’
- Meatball – a funny and cute choice for a pudgy and heavy dog. Breeds that would especially suit this option are Bulldogs and Pugs, as they tend to have large faces and bodies but stumpy legs, almost like a meatball!
- Cupcake – what better option than Cupcake is there for the sweetest and cutest dog you know! This is truly adorable and would be the cherry on top of an already delightful puppy
- Cadbury – a delicious chocolate bar. This would make a perfect nickname for a chocolate-colored Labrador, who is as sweet and delectable as this chocolatey treat
