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 and is easy to spell over the phone to your veterinarian. Dachshund names don’t have to be sausage or hot dog shape-based names (sausage dog names).
How to Choose the Perfect Dachshund Name
It can be hard to come up with a name for your new Dachshund puppy since there is still so much to learn about them.
- Pick a name that pertains to YOU. Something that is your favorite or something that is special to you. Then, as you get to know your Dachshund, you can add in a middle name that goes along with your doxie’s unique personality.
- Exclude names that sound similar to dog training commands, this can be confusing for your dog. For example, names that include the sound ‘no’, ‘stay’, ‘sit’, ‘come’.
- Avoid choosing a name that sounds too close to a family member’s name. This may cause some confusion when teaching your dog his name.

I have a standard wirehaired cute dachshund. His name is Harry (from birth and common H litter). Thank you for your comments and learning. This is my first dachshund, I had a cocker spaniel and a labrador. The complete opposite. They say that the dachshund is not a dog breed, but a strong character. But how not to love a dachshund?
Hi Adam, you are correct, Dachshunds aren’t just a dog, haha. Raising your dachshund will be a true experience that you will never forget (in a very good way). I have added Harry to our Dachshund Name Wall of Fame List. Thank you for sharing. :)
