Top Names For Dobermans

Doberman Pinscher Names

Are you looking for suggestions of dog names for your new doberman? Or do you want to change an older dog’s name to something different?

This list of doberman names should help you out.  These names for doberman pinschers have been selected for their popularity, originality and  for representing the qualities we love in our fine breed.  The doberman dog looks noble, elegant, athletic, regal and powerful, and as such deserves a name to match.

Some of these are famous dobermans and some are just really good doberman puppy names. Whatever name you pick, just please whatever you do, don’t give your dog a “people” name, no George or Mandy, etc. It’s a personal pet peeve of mine when people give their dogs “people” names. Dogs are special animals and therefore deserve special names. Dobermans even more so deserve a majestic, strong, royal dog name. So here are some of the best doberman dog name ideas.

Also keep in mind when choosing a name that it’s a good idea to pick a name that has 2 or 3 syllables. This makes it easier for the dog to clearly understand and learn their new name. Also don’t choose a name that sounds like a common obedience command. This may be confusing to the dog. For example if you name him Spitz , he may hear SIT.

If you want to change your dog’s name (which you can do at any age), start off my combining the old name with the new name. For example, if you picked up a doberman at a dog rescue and it had the name Fido, that you wanted to change to Conan, here’s how you go about it. Start calling your dog Fido-Conan, both names said together. In time your dog will associate the new name (Conan) as his and you can then just drop the old name (the awful Fido gone).

Do you think your dog has a great name? Tell us what it is and why you picked the name.  Just add it in the comment section below.

    We had a lovely dobe called Sultan and he didn’t anyone or anything, not even baby birds that got inside our place. So I don’t think you can generalize about their aggressiveness. Now we have another 1 year old dobe called Pasha and he’s still very pup-like and so affectionate but like Sultan treats the world as his friends. But is so smart and love able.

    My fiancé and I have a 1 1/2 year old black and tan female named Addison, Addie for short, that we rescued when she was 3 months old. She’s the first Dobe either of us have ever had and she is just the best. Super smart and loyal, she even learned to smile with her teeth showing by watching me. The first time she did it I thought she was baring teeth at me lol She is just the sweetest thing ever.

    We are going to pick up a black and tan male pup this afternoon and we are super excited, but since we don’t know him we haven’t been able to pick a name.

    A few ideas we were tossing around:
    Wilson (for Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson)

    We had a black & tan male, he was a big boy, we called him Hannibal, he was as gentle as a lamb and extremely loyal, we lost him in October this year, he was 12. We still have a red and tan female, Beth, she is sweet and loving and is 11. We are thinking about getting another male pup soon and will possibly call him Bob or Steve or Frank, not 100% sure of a name yet.

    I had a female Doberman named Reign. (I was going to spell it Rane, but ended up with her full AKC name being Sabbath’s princess Reigns). She was a great dog, I lost her a week ago and am still upset about it. I will be getting a new Dobe and am trying to think of a great name.

    We have a 2 year old black & tan dobie called Brian, who we named after Brian Johnson from AC/DC. We are also on our way to get a red female dobie, which we will probably name Dana, after the fictional character Dana Scully, from The X-Files.
