The Best Rottweiler Names

When it comes Rottweiler names, there’s a lot of great possibilities to choose from. The only really tricky part is finding a rottweiler dog name that’s as wonderful as your Rottie!

Rottweilers are a fascinating blend of characteristics and seem to mix opposite personality traits with surprising ease.

Strong yet gentle, rugged but sweet-natured, protective but with a ‘laid back’ attitude, definitely worthy of a ‘special’ name don’t you think?

So, where do you start?

Well, Rotties originated in Germany, so a German name would be a good choice.

This breed traveled with the Roman Army centuries ago, so perhaps a Latin or Italian name?

Then again there are some great puppy names that just seem to ‘fit’ a Rottweiler – how about Tank for a male Rottie pup (he’s sure to be the size of a tank when he grows up).

Or maybe Diamond or Jewel for your girl pup, after all she is precious :o)

Don’t worry, I’ve made it all a bit easier for you on this page! Just browse through the lists of dog names below and you shouldn’t have any trouble finding the perfect name for your little one (or BIG one).

Have fun………..

Tips for choosing Rottweiler dog names

Dogs respond better to short names of two or three syllables – two is best. Make sure it’s a name that you can pronounce and it can’t be easily confused with other words, especially common obedience commands such as ‘Sit’ Or ‘Down’.

Rottweiler puppies are about the cutest things on four legs, they’re like little black bears. But don’t choose too ‘cutesy’ a name for your cutie. Remember that tiny pup will likely weigh anywhere between 80 and 120 lbs in a few short years, and ‘Fifi’ or ‘Peanut’ may just sound plain silly then!

It’s also a good idea to bear in mind that not everyone understands the Rottweiler, or feels the way you do about this breed. If you call your Rottie pup ‘Fang’ or ‘Killer’ you may be helping to reinforce the stereotype, not to mention frighten the neighbors.
