Bichon Frise: Naming Your Pet

Choosing the right name for your Bichon Frise is important. Your petís name will hopefully last its lifetime. Youíll be calling it virtually dozens of times a day. Youíll be calling your pets name to greet you, and to praise and to reprimand him/her. So choose a name that you enjoy saying and that you both can live with.

If youíre in the process of choosing a name for your dog keep these things in mind:

  • Keep it simple. Choose a name that your Bichon Frise can easily recognise.  A name with just one or two syllables works best.


  • Avoid names that can be confused easily with typical commands. Hereís an example, "Flo" could probably be easily mistaken for "no!"


  • When adding a new pet to your house hold avoid names that sound too much alike to avoid confusion.

You can always look at lists of names and choose from them. For a more personal and creative approach you might want to try this:

Jot down some ideas, brainstorm, free associate, Iím talking stream of consciousness here, you can always edit later.

Next...(still jotting...)

Consider your dogs:

  • Birthday

  • Breed

  • Sex,

  • Physical appearance, color, markings

  • Personality traits, Is your dog shy, playful, affectionate or excitable? Remember Sleepy and
  • Sneezy from Snow White?

  • Idiosyncrasies,

  • Likes and dislikes, favorite treats

Look over your list and circle the standouts. Then put it aside, forget about it, do something else. Hey I know go take __________(dogís name) for a walk! Later on look over your notes with fresh eyes. After awhile a name may jump out at you or come to you later. If youíre still stumped check out some names on our list or other sites for pet or even baby names too.
