Top 100 unique, strong & badass names for male and female german shepherds

Is there a new member that’s joining your clan? What are you going to name the handsome little member? German Shepherds are loyal and playful yet badass. These precious creatures are considered to be one of the strongest breeds, hence, they are favoured as service dogs, police dogs and even pets who can guard your home while you’re away!

According to American Kennels Clubs, the German shepherd is the second most popular breed in the world after Labradors. This is simply because their devotion and courage are unmatched. One thing is for sure, dog owners will never regret adopting and getting home a German Shepherd, as they are extremely playful, sensitive, and are perfect family dogs, as they adapt themselves to every environment and atmosphere. 

German Shepherds are considered to be highly adaptive dogs, be it any situation. And that is something that makes them so great! They can be alone, be with strangers, be in the cold and hot weather and have a high sensitivity level. They would adjust perfectly at your home, as they are supremely adjusting with families, kids, strangers and new environments. Grooming and training them is a piece of cake and their intelligence and playfulness are beyond compare!

These hunky creatures are not only faithful, but are also sharp, bright, athletic, and striking to look at. In short, German Shepherds are perfect in all big and petite ways! And thus, finding a perfect name for these perfect creatures can be a hell of a challenge.

But before naming your dog, there are a few points you always must remember:

  • Never name your dog based on ongoing trends. A trend might come and go, but this paw-some creature will be with you for years and years.
  • Always think of short & Sweet. You don’t want to name your pup or dog as William IV – the Sailor-King, and make it a hell of a task for yourself.
  • Don’t try to get funny and name your dog as something embarrassing, which you can’t only yell out! We’re serious here, people do that, and regret it later!
  • Find a very unique name of your GSD, but don’t indulge in keeping their names as some negative personalities or character, it is not cool, and you will repent it.

While on the way to getting your new member home, you might be feeling extremely overwhelmed, but don’t let your feelings get in the way of naming your dog. 

This is a decision that should be extremely well thought, and researched. Since these dogs serve the police force and are considered to be one of the fittest, most athletic, and fierce breeds, their names always must be matching to their personality, otherwise, it will look and sound like a total misfit. Imagine your dog to be bulky and mighty, you obviously cannot name him Jerry, or maybe brandy, simply because these names go well with other bijou breeds.
