Dog names in B: a whole bunch of original ideas!

By | April 20, 2022

It is the letter B which is in the spotlight in 2026 if your dog is registered on the French Book of Origins ( LOF ). Are you looking for a popular or rather original B dog name? Do you want a humorous first name for your dog or a tribute to a famous person? It doesn’t matter because we have prepared lists of dog names in B for each theme!


Some clues to make the best choice of dog name in B

The first name that you give to your dog is very important because it will follow it throughout its life. It will also be the basis of his education. It is therefore not chosen at random. He can be original but without being too ridiculous either for him or for you (when you call him) and must meet certain rules. 

For example, it should not be too long because a dog only understands the first 2 syllables. It is also necessary to take into account the letters which follow the B. It is indeed necessary that your dog hears its name well. 

After a B, you must therefore if possible put a so-called snapping vowel such as a, o or even i. Avoid the “or” sound. The second consonant must also be snappy. An r, a t or a k will be perfect.

Why one letter per year?

Many masters think that choosing a dog name based on such a letter is a tradition or something that is not mandatory. So no it’s not a tradition and yes it’s actually not mandatory in some cases. 

For the year 2026, if your dog is registered in the French stud book, then yes you must choose a dog name that begins with the letter B. If it is not registered there, then you do what you want. 

What is the LOF? It is a great book that lists all the origins of purebred dogs. Created in 1885, it therefore makes it possible to find the origins of a dog. But to facilitate research, the LOF decided in 1926 to assign one letter per year. 

Given the difficulty of finding dog names that begin with a K, a Q, a W, a W, an X, a Y and a Z, the LOF decided to remove these letters in 1972.

Final words and important recommendations

Loving and educating your dog is also protecting him against the vagaries of life. That’s why I highly recommend that you get dog health insurance as soon as possible. This will save you astronomical veterinary costs in the event of an accident or illness.
