Dare to Name Your Pets with Unique Male Dog Names

Tell us: Why are unique male dog names so popular today? Tracing back, one of the big reasons why dog naming became such a popular trend was because of the notoriety of the famous Doberman Gang. Back in the 70’s, this referred to a pack of 6 Doberman dogs (male and female) named after notorious bank robbers such as Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, Baby Face Nelson, Ma Barker, Bonnie, and Clyde. Dubbed as daring and amazing, there were sequels to this movie, which further fuelled the craze for the most unique male dog names.

This brings us to the infamous Dillinger Gang. Back in the era of the (not so) Great American Depression, these bank robbers had stand-out names such as John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson. So, this makes pet names such as Dillinger, Baby Face, and Nelson hot on your list.

Since we’re into canines, other than Canine or K9, you can simply go for a name like Cain or Caine, which in Welsh means “clear water”. Biblical in origin, it also means “spear”. Thus, this suits a personality which is clear, focused, and idealistic.Abel, on the other hand, is Hebrew and means either “son” or “breath”.
