Whether you prefer a name that reflects their personality, a place you love, or if you’re looking to opt for something old fashioned instead, we’ve got many amazing and awesome Labradoodle names to share with you. We’ve also split them up into different categories based on your Dood’s gender, but also personality and physical traits. As an added bonus, we’ll share with you our best kept secrets for choosing the best Labradoodle name. Let’s get started!
Tips For Naming Your Labradoodle
Although naming your Labradoodle is definitely super exciting and fun, it’s also pretty tricky – there are hundreds, even thousands of cute names to choose from. And after all, you and your pup have to stick with the name for years to come. So, it only makes sense to choose a name that reflects their personality, and is meaningful, but also practical. Let’s cover the basics first…
Consider Their Personality & Appearance
Many dog owners like to choose a name that reflects either the Dood’s personality or appearance. For instance, is your pup more of a laid-back type or do they prefer to be more the center of attention? Or, would you prefer to name your pup based on their coat type, color, or size?
Of course, during the first days when you’ve just adopted your two-month old puppy, it might be a bit difficult to evaluate your puppy’s personality and temperament. However, many reputable breeders actually observe and temperament-test their puppies before placing them in forever homes. So, if you’ve got a sassy pup, names like Roxy, Rebel, or Rocco might fit them better than Cocoapuff or Cookie.
In terms of their appearance, there are many ways you can approach the subject. If you’ve got a Mini Labradoodle, you might want their name to reflect their small size. But what many dog owners like to do is to choose their Labradoodle’s name based on their coat color.
As you might know, Labradoodles come in an array of colors and coat patterns, such as chocolate, apricot a.k.a golden, red, black, cream, blue, or silver. This will already give you a great place to start. However, keep in mind that Labradoodles tend to fade in color as they grow older.
Consider Their Gender
Some dog owners like gender-specific pet names, while others prefer gender-neutral Labradoodle names. On the other hand, many dog names actually work great for both genders! It all comes down to your personal preference and what name seems to suit your Dood best.
Later on in this article, we’ll share with you the best Labradoodle names for both genders. We’ve also split up male and female Labradoodle names in various categories, such as names based on their physical traits or personality based names.
One of the key factors to keep in mind when choosing a Labradoodle name is to avoid anything that’s similar to members of your family or pets. Your dog’s name is one of the most important things that they’ll learn. It’s key to training your dog successfully and making sure that you have their full attention. Naturally, if you choose to name your Dood after another member of the family, it can get pretty confusing for both of them. Likewise, you’ll want to make sure that the names aren’t too similar-sounding.
In addition to that, you’ll want to avoid names that sound similar to your pup’s basic everyday commands like ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘down’, or ‘come’. For example, names like Ray or Jay sound very similar to ‘stay’, or names like Brown and Crown can be confused with ‘down’.
Draw Inspiration From Your Surroundings
Another great way to find inspiration for Labradoodle names is to think about your surroundings and special memories. Maybe you have your absolute favorite movie or TV character that you’d like to name your Dood after? Or maybe there’s a special place in your heart that would fit perfectly as your Labradoodle’s name? Many Doodle owners also opt for nature-inspired names or cute food-inspired names.

Keep It Simple
You might have heard all those long and fancy show dog names, like Princess Dandyridge Brandywine, but there’s no reason to make this complicated for either you or your pup (or anyone you know).
Instead, keep it short and simple. Dogs respond way better to short and simple names that they can easily distinguish. In fact, two-syllable names are thought to work better for dogs who are easily distracted. Additionally, dogs tend to respond better to sharp-sounding consonants, such as P, K, and D.
So, now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s get into the details…
