101 Names for your Cocker Spaniel Dog

Cocker Spaniel Dog NamesDiscover 101 Cocker Spaniel dog names for this loveable dog with long floppy ears, endearing eyes and a wagging tail. Cockers are adorable dogs that gently take over your house and your heart. Give them a name that fits.

So, what should you call your new pup? Well, Cocker Spaniels can be American or English. Suffice it to say that any British or American sounding name will do. But then again, you can pick any name that suits your fancy.

NOTE: If you simply need more information about this breed, review the breed information page.

Let's just say you want to stick to the traditional. "Alec," "Ace" and "Albert" are great options. A peaceful pup deserves a name like "Chesney" while a dog that makes you laugh deserves the name like "Ike." (hey, that rhymes) Don't forget "Irving" which means handsome and "Maximus" to refer to "the greatest" dog you will ever have (at least in terms of temperament and beauty).

Female Cocker Spaniel dog names include "Goldilocks" for the sweet curly fur and "Purdy" as in pretty. "Bessie," "Bianca" and "Roxy" will do as well. If you want to be in with the popular crowd, choose "Bella" for her obvious good looks. Bella also ranks as one of the most popular female dog names.

Because Spaniels are also very intelligent, you can name your pet "Sophie" as the name means wisdom. A male Cocker Spaniel can also be named "Otis" for being of good hearing, as one of the features that most of these intelligent animals possess.

In the end, it's up to you to pick the best name for your pup. The idea is to consider the things you love about your dog and pick something that fits. Here are 101 Cocker Spaniel dog names to consider.
