Choosing The Perfect Name for Your Husky

Husky Puppies

Now that we have shown you all our favorite names, it is time for you to try them out.

Huskies are a spectacular breed that deserves a perfectly fitting name to match their bold personality and gorgeous good looks.

There is no need to be nervous about picking a name that fits because we have our top three tips on choosing the perfect name for your dog.

Tip One – Get Inspired

From our huge list of 275 names, you can see that inspiration can come from anywhere.

Maybe you could choose a name based on the wintery landscapes that are your Husky’s natural habitat, like the name Frost for example?

Or how about taking influence from Siberian culture and choosing a mythological name like Loon?

Tip Two – Check Out Nicknames

Sometimes bigger names can take some growing into, or are just too long. A dog’s name shouldn’t be more than two syllables.

Try nicknaming your dog, a name like Florence can be affectionately nicknamed Flo at home. Alaska could be shortened to Lesky.

Tip Three – Match Name To Personality

Make sure that their name suits their personality.

If your puppy is cheeky, a name like Heist would be perfect. Or if they have a more peaceful temperament, try Spirit or Echo.

You can always try shouting out the name in the park to bring the name to life.


We hope we have inspired you with our huge list of fun and creative names. The Siberian Husky names, in particular, are super-cool!

By choosing any of these names your dog is bound to turn heads.
