Transforming Top to Uncommon Male Dog Names

It’s a common name-nerd conundrum — wanting a name that’s stylish and familiar but under-the-radar. We hear this request all the time.

This extends beyond baby names. People are looking for unique dog names, too. Now that there’s data on popular names for dogs and cats, pet owners can check their choices’ popularity before making a final decision. Because if you're the type of person who works hard to ensure your child won't go by their last initial in the classroom, you're not going to like when you call for Ziggy and three dogs come running at the dog park.

We've taken the Top 100 male dog names and offered a similar alternative that does not rank among dog names. It’s pretty safe to say that your dog will be the only Kenji on the block, rather than the third Benji.
