What is a good name for a Dachshund?

Dachshunds have a unique disposition, a bold attitude, and a colorful personality. A good dachshund name should be something that you can think of quickly. A name that is easily spelled over the phone to your veterinarian. Dachshund names don’t have to be sausage or hot dog shape-based names (sausage dog names).

When choosing your dog’s name, exclude names that sound similar to training commands.  For example, names that sound like or include the words ‘No’,  ‘stay’,  ‘sit’,  ‘come’.

Avoid choosing a name that sounds too close to a family member’s name.  This may cause your doxie some name confusion.

We have sorted a list of the best Dachshund Names (or Dachshund puppy names) into categories of popularity and origin to help you with your search for the right name for your doxie.  Most of these names do have multiple origins.  We have listed the primary origin.
