Goldendoodle dog names

Whether you're adopting a goldendoodle from your shelter or sourcing from a reputable breeder, a good name should fit your pup like a good harness.

But it's not always easy to get it right.

While many of us struggle to figure out what to name our new furry family member, other pet parents seem to have no issue whipping up first, middle, and last names. (My personal favorite: Chili No Scrubs Watson.)

We delved into the data to find the most common (and interesting) dog names for goldendoodles, some of the most beloved mixed breeds out there.

Let's get inspired.

OK, so you're looking for a name for a stately (or goofy) goldendood. The #1 pick? Charlie.

  • Milo

  • Cooper

  • Ollie

  • Murphy

  • Leo

  • Bentley

  • Winston

  • Tucker

  • Teddy

Many of these names could also fit human babies (or perhaps butlers?), and in fact, some of them are also trending as top baby boy names in the US. (Not surprising considering many of us think of our pets as fur children.)

Top 10 female goldendoodle names

  • Luna

  • Daisy

  • Sophie

  • Bella

  • Molly

  • Ginger

  • Ruby

Goodbye, Bella; hello, Peppa Rose Burnett. (As an added bonus, a full name like this one is guaranteed to command your pup's attention more as she's gnawing on her pee pads.)

  • Windsor Chontilly Brown

  • Teddy Graham Brooks

  • Theodore James Fisher

  • Royale Ratcliff

  • Pierre Duke Taylor

Top 10 food names for goldendoodles

We might not yet have the data to back this up, but we're seeing food names for dogs pop up A LOT. We might even go as far as to predict they'll be trending in the next few years, potentially overtaking mainstays like "Luna." To be determined.

Names like "Biscuit" just make sense for goldendoodles, as they typically also function as secondary vacuum cleaners. Here are some fun food names for goldendoodles in our ManyPets pack:

  • Cannoli

  • Honey

  • Oreo

  • Mocha

  • Noodle

  • Mochi

  • Pepper

  • Cookie

  • Brownie

  • Biscuit

(Just be careful not to let "brownie" eat their namesake.)

Dog insurance for your dood

The only thing better than landing on the perfect name for your goofy goldendoodle?

Signing them up for a great goldendoodle insurance policy. If your dood runs into an unexpected accident or illness, pet insurance is designed to help reimburse you for the cost of vet care*, even in emergency situations where you can't make it to your usual vet.

*pre-existing conditions excluded. See your policy for details.
