Fluffy Dog Names: Fun Name Ideas For Your Floof!

Are you obsessed with fluffy dogs? Looking for a name for your new furry floof? Why not name your fuzzy pooch something fur-related!

There are tons of themed names for your fuzzball pal, so check out this list of name ideas!

Popular Fluffy Dog Breeds

Any dog can be named something fur-inspired, but this list highlights a few exceptionally fluffy breeds that are perfect for a fuzzy name.

Here are some pooches we think would be great with a fluffy name:

  • Pomeranian. Pomeranians are petite pups with fluff that can double their size. These pooches are classified as toy dogs, given their small stature, and they originate from Germany and Poland. They’re also often referred to as “teddy bear dogs” due to their too-cute-to-handle look. They have incredibly puffy fur and are generally tan in color. These pups are a great fit for a fluffy dog name because they are practically made up of fur!
  • Husky. Huskies are native to chilly places and thrive in the cold weather. Their thick coats act as insulation against wind and rain, so they’re accustomed to icy temps. We think huskies are a great candidate for a fluff-inspired name because a husky’s fur is his biggest asset!
  • Poodle. Poodles are well known for their curly fur, but in addition to being exceptionally cute, these pooches are hypoallergenic, meaning that you won’t have to worry about shedding OR sneezing!
  • Bichon Frise. The Bichon Frise is one of the most iconic fluffy dogs, and although not everyone knows their name, they are quite identifiable. These furballs are on the small end, classified as toy dogs. They sport thick ringleted fur that is usually white.
  • Chow Chow. This pooch comes from China, where the Chinese translation of its name actually means “puffy lion dog”. This nickname is so fitting because these pups have so much golden fur that it looks like they have a mane!
  • Samoyed. The Samoyed is actually native to Siberia, and has historically been used to herd reindeer. These dogs are pure white and have puffy fur to protect themselves from the elements. The puffiest part might actually be their tails, which look like cotton candy!
