Male German Shepherd Names

Male German Shepherd names should be strong and simple. Your choice of name will be with him for his lifetime. Make sure the name you choose grows with him and fits your dogs personality.

One thing people often miss when naming their German Shepherd puppy is the ease of the sound and where the sound is emphasized when spoken. These are syllables and can make the sound easy or harder for your dog to understand.

Choosing a male German Shepherd name that has 1, 2, or 3 syllables is suggested.

Things To Be Aware of When Choosing Male German Shepherd Names

Using one syllable names has been a "no-no" in the dog world. Mostly because some names can be easily confused with common words we use in everyday language.

It would be difficult to teach "NO" to a pet named Noah. Not impossible, just harder than if his name were Jake.

Names like Ben can be easily confused with the common word "been". If you're in a habit of asking family members "where have you been" you're inadvertently desensitizing your dog to knowing it's own name.

Be aware of the likeness of other words and one syllable words that are commonly used.

Two syllable name choices are great. The most common choices for male German Shepherd names are two syllable words. Think of the names from Buddy to Tucker that are easy to say, learned quickly by your dog, and are strong and simple. Two syllable words can be said with emphasis and firmness when needed but don't command attention like "Duke" would. It's more of a personal choice than anything else.

Three syllable names get a bit more difficult to say and harder for your dog to immediately understand. If using a 3 syllable name try to keep it short like in "Apollo". When using longer character names like "Maximus" you can always shorten and nickname "Max" to keep within the easy to say, easy to understand zone.
