Doberman Names That Aren’t Crappy

DOBERMAN names that are original uniqueDoberman 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.

funny doberman name king of fartsIf 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).

Lastly don’t forget to get a Dog Id Tag with your cell phone number. If your dog or puppy gets lost or runs away, this will help you get your dog back sooner. Red Dingo Dog Tags are good quality stainless steel tags in fun styles. Or maybe you would like a  Saint Benedict Protection ID Tag for Dogs.

Do you think your dog has a great name?

Tell us the name and why you picked it.  Just add it in the comment section below.divider

    I always like leaning towards German names and paying tribute to their lineage as well. We named our Black male Ziegen. Ziegen means “goat” in German. Dobermans are very strong, sometimes hardheaded (like a goat) dogs, so I found it appropriate. Ziegenbock (actually my fav beer) also has a goat/ram on the [black and tan] label of their bottle and one of the females on his maternal line was named Shiner Bock and the breeder had names all her studs with Z names, so his formal name was Ziegen Bock and it worked out perfect all around.
    My dad named his black male Zebulon (from the same breeder as Ziegen), Zeb for short. Zebulon Brockway is the father of the American prison system and Dobermans have been used as guard/prison/police dogs.
    Also Rosten for a red male (Rosten means “red” in German).
    Like the name Zeppelin for a black female (or male). Led Zeppelin actually had a song called Black Dog and “Led Zeppelin” actually refers to the Hindenburg, which was the infamous German airship that went down like a lead balloon when it caught fire.
    Raymond (German name for protector of the home). If you had a red male he could be named Raymond Reddington ;0)
    Varick (German name for Protecting ruler)
    Jager (which is NOT my fav liquor) is a German name that means Hunter, which seem appropriate, considering Dobermans’ high prey drive. Also Jagermeifter is BLACK liquorish flavored German liquor.
    …sorry for the long post.

    In naming all my past Dobermans in my resent comment I just posted added, I failed to mention my 2 current rescues that didn’t get their names mentioned. We received them with their names, and I don’t believe in changing a rescues name unless 1 you don’t know their name, or 2 the name is inappropriate, disrespectful, or not even a name. Our 2 current rescues are:

    Xena: black/tan female cropped
    Mannie: black tan male natural

    I have had Dobermans my whole life as well as my wife who also had Dobermans her whole life. From my experience dogs in general seam to respond better and adapt more quicker to, two syllable names. They stand out more to the Dobermans receptors. My number one Doberman that stands above the rest was named,
    Hymmie: pronounced (Hi-Me) 2004-2012
    black/tan male
    Some of my other babies:
    Debo: Dee-Bo black/tan male
    Dutches: red/tan female
    Diablo: black/tan male
    JuJu: (Jew-Jew) red/tan female
    I don’t mind other people using these names if they are looking for a good name for their baby. My pups would have be flattered to have other Dobermans named after them. They truly are the best breed/ creatures on earth. I will never reuse any of my dear dobermans name for any future dobermans because to me there will always only be one Hymmie, JuJu etc. God Bless all the Doberman owners out there, please just love, spoil, and cherish them every second of every day, don’t ever take your time with them for granted.

    We have had dobies for almost 40 years. Love the breed, wish they were healthier. #1 Baron von Roscoe, called Rock, #2 Jake, #3 Leroy, #4 Claymore, called Clay #5 Gunnar, called Gunny #6 Maximus, called Max. It’s been 2 yeard since Max crossed the bridge and discovered we just can’t go without. We are patiently awaiting the birth of our next love. We have really enjoyed all these comments!

    Three names I’ve not seen listed anywhere:

    1. Jor-El: Father of Kal-El, aka., Superman.

    2. Hannibal: The great General that challenged Rome circa 220 B.C. This guy used War Elephants to fight. He was feared by Rome.

    3. Rommel: The great German WW2 General known as the “Desert Fox.” He was admired by both friend and foe alike.

    I am glad you enjoyed the story of how Fang got his name, Jaki. No doubt just a weird and sort of cool coincidence, but it really happened like that. I didn’t mean to imply that Fang, my sweet, crybaby Mama’s boy has any sort of mystical powers although I realize it might come across that way. I sure hope he doesn’t since he’s so willful that he gives pushy, overbearing dogs a bad name, which apparently, is a common Doberman trait. But totally recalcitrant notwithstanding, you couldn’t find a sweeter, friendlier dog. Shiny as a new penny and gorgeous to boot.

    So, no comments on the name “Fang?” I love it, but it is nothing like a name I’d be likely to choose. My previous 2 dogs (both massive German Shepherds–Fang is my first Doberman)) were named “Eddie” and “Baby.”

    I’d lost my dog in a tragic way and my heart was so crushed I said I’d never get another. Several months later, my vet called and said another of his clients owned two female Dobermans, sisters & litter mates, one red and one black, and one male (unrelated). He said all 3 were superb dogs and that he was familiar with several puppies from previous litters and that all were healthy, intelligent, good tempered, obedient and really good looking dogs. Both the females were pregnant by the same male and the owner was very picky about to whom he sold his puppies but the vet had called the owner and spoken so highly of me that the owner would grant me first look at the puppies due to be born in a few weeks. That night I had a dream that I already got the puppy who was able to talk. The dream puppy told me his name was “Fang” and that he would be my dog. I asked Fang how I would recognize him and he told me not to worry, he’d let me know. The two sisters bore their respective litters 3 days apart and had 19 puppies between them. I’d told he owner I wanted a male. He allowed me to come over to choose my puppy at three weeks and proceeded to place a box containing 10 adorable puppies of each color in my lap. How could I choose? Then a little black and red guy clawed his way out of the box to my lap and promptly curled up for a nap. I said “I guess this is my dog.” Fang is 4 years old now and I adore him, and love his name, but didn’t really choose it. Great name, though

    There are some excellent names in these comments; thank you all for sharing!

I grew up with a succession of Dobermans as trusted companions (and comic relief) and Freyja is my first female Doberman.

    Make sure you do your research before getting a dobe. “Awesome, great and cool” are not enough to decide if a breed is a good fit for you. Dobermans are very smart, very hard headed dogs and they are not for everyone. I have seen far too many dobermans at rescues and shelters because people thought they were the perfect breed or thought they were awesome, great, cool or tough looking. Please don’t do this amazing breed a disservice by getting one for the wrong reasons.

I loved Lexi, but couldn’t convince my husband. I also like Cairo (Kairo, or Kyro – shortened to Kai). Love J names like Jade, Jayda and Jayla. Also Layla, Roxie, Jett, Zola, Tia, Tash, Jace, Mika, Vega, Sloane, Sophie and Devon. I like Jackpot and Blackjack (both shortened to jack or jax) It really depends on the dog’s personality.

We called him Cowhead cuz of his big head and paws when he was still growing into his massive 115 lbs size as a full grown Dobe. He was the most AWESOME animal I have ever known.

    I am thinking about getting a Doberman. I’ve never had one before but from all the “Awesome, Great, Cool” I’m getting from up there, I think they will be the PERFECT dog for me. I’m thinking about names… Hmm.

    * Prince (Male)
    * Zippy (Male)
    * Boomer (Male)
    * Sky (Female)
    * Pepper (Female)
    * Pixie (Female)
    Let me know what you think! Any suggestions?

    We just adopted a new baby boy-black and tan. He already knew his name was Ozzie-so we had to keep it. But my boyfriend is insisting we spell it Ozzy- after the infamous Ozzy Osbourne- lead singer of Black (get it?) Sabbath who became more famous after biting the head off of a bat onstage. Our Ozzy bites anything and everything he can get his sharp little teeth into. We also have another black and tan rescue- the sweetest girl ever. She came with the name Rizzo- but it has evolved to Brizzie as Rizzo was too hard for her sweet nature. She is lovingly mothering Ozzy. Our old girl Kaitlyn, or as we fondly refer to as Kate, is 9 and still going strong- but not enjoying “sharing” her bed with the new “intruder”. We’ve also had Monty- who was Kate’s mother and Kate’s litter mates- Leon Redbone- a red male and Sadie. In the past he had Dollie and I had Chaz.
    My favorite bumper sticker states- “This in not a dog- it’s a DOBERMAN”. Thank you for this site- what fun!

    I got my female Doberman when she was 9 weeks old. She’s currently 13 weeks old. As soon as I saw her I instantly named her Bella because I thought she was absolutely beautiful! So far Bella’s such a good dog & get’s along amazingly with my other dog Rocky (German Shepherd/Collie mix). She’s also been very easy to house break so far. She had her tail done & dew claws done already when i got her but not her ears. Is it too late to get her ears done?

    My black n tan girl is Charli. She still has her floppy ears and long tail. She is now a year old and the sweetest baby. I rescued her and so glad I didn’t just pass by her. She was so tiny when found everyone thought she was a minpin. Lol but her legs out grew her soon enough. I couldn’t have asked for a better dog.

    We have a great dobe that is 2 years old. She is our baby and her name is Ruby. It was a great name because it is easy to call for her when she is out or when she is in trouble 🙂 The best thing is that her name is pretty but not dumb for a dog of her size.

    Growing up, I had Dobermans named Mona (because she moaned a lot), Greta, and Rex. My large male Dobe is named Atticus (which is on the list!) and we constantly get compliments on his name. Our blue is Willa, which confuses people (Will? Willow?) and our red is Nellie. I do like Aslan for a male, and we have a friend with a blue named Zola, which is also a great name.

We nursed him back to health, we got him another dobe companion at 3 years old, Maya, a 2 year old chocolate girl, we rescued from a shelter. I have an 11 month old girl now, black and tan, named Loca because she is completely bonkers, her best friend is my boyfriend’s rottweiler Diablo (I dont really like the name, hes such a softie, it doesnt really suit him).

    My black male I had named Attila, it was strong and it seemed to fit him perfectly.

I strongly recommend everyone having the VWD test before breeding or any type of surgery for there doberman. My red female I named Athena after the goddess of war and wisdom and boy is she smart, I taught her to whisper and how to open doors! They are my children and I love them as such!

    hi all,
    we had a beautful black tan girl for a glorious 12 yrs, her name was Tess. We are now awaiting the eight week mark to get our new red rust baby girl, and are deciding between a few names…
    Jersey,— sounds nice n strong n cool.
    Kalani,—means from the Heavens.
    Katima,—means Powerful Daughter.
    Keely,—means Beauty.

    All names are gorgeous, now its decision time.

    I think that named a Doberman some manly name is kinda silly. Look everyone at my Doberman “Rambo” he is a prime example of a stereotypical name for a guard dog breed. My female red dobies name is Ginger *she is red, and those of you that have lived in Hawaii will know that there is red ginger. I think that you can scare people that are already scared by the breed, by giving some *Rambo* name. Just my two cents worth
