Naming a Pomeranian isn’t easy because he has bold looks, a big personality and is possibly the softest, fluffiest dog in the world. You need to choose a name that suits him as a cute puppy, then as a bold adult with the personality to match and one that will be significant for him as he’ll be called by that name for the rest of his life, whether it’s at home in privacy or out in public when he’s taking you for walks.

I have a gigantic list of canine names that will clearly demonstrate how incredible your Pomeranian really is! Let’s get started.

Pomeranian owners already agree that even though this is physically small, he has a huge personality. He’s curious, bold and as energetic as any dog can be. However, after you have played with him and taken him for walks, he’s a wonderful companion who loves curling up in your lap, and even drifting off to sleep while you rub his tummy…assuming you have done everything to earn his trust.  

A wonderful dog like this deserves his own special name, a name that will be used to call him whenever he’s needed. The great news is that we have more than one hundred ideas we believe you’ll love.

What’s the Best Way to Choose a Perfect Name?

After many years of assisting people in their quest to choose the right name, we have picked up a few pointers that will help you select the name that is synonymous with your new bundle of joy:  

  • Is it easy to say? There are names that seem awesome but are actually hard to pronounce as part of your dog’s daily life.
  • Speak it aloud. Can you picture yourself loudly calling him by this name?
  • Does it match your new addition to the family? While you may have a chosen name, it might not suit your Pomeranian’s personality or look.
  • Go with your gut. Your instincts will let you know when you discover that perfect name.

Naming Your Pomeranian Puppy – How Long Until He Learns His Name?

Dogs are sensitive and intelligent animals, and this describes Pomeranians perfectly.

However, every dog is different. The majority of experts do agree that if a dog is trained properly, he can recognize his name in just 2 days.

Teaching your dog his name is similar to teaching him almost anything else. Professionals recommend using the treat-based system to reward good behavior, along with a loving hand, patience and consistency while focusing on his name and getting him used to it.

One training “trick,” for want of a better term, is to ensure he associates his name with something that’s positive.

Teaching Recall:

Your goal is to train your pet Pom to come when called.

So, avoid using his name to tell him off, particularly in the beginning. For example, he might leave a mess on your expensive rug, or tear up the toilet paper. Don’t say “No, Sammy, bad puppy!”

If you use his name in such early instances, while you’re teaching him, he may connect his name with negative connotations and never come, scared he is in trouble.

Positive Reinforcement:

What you should do is say his name, in a high-pitched voice and when he comes to you, give him a yummy treat.

If you have a rescue dog or your dog is an adult, there’s no need for concern. It’s possible to teach an old dog new tricks, and that includes a brand-new name.

Just add the new name to his old name for a few weeks, once he has settled to that then just drop use of the old name.

Soon, he’ll figure out exactly who he is.

Pomeranian Dog Names Summary

Have you discovered the perfect name for your adorable Pomeranian yet?

I hope I have been of some help. I have curated funny, cute, good and even names inspired by food. It can take a while for your new Pomeranian to learn his name so, remain positive and try until you find it. Don’t forget the treats as he starts learning the name that will form part of his identity for the rest of his life.
