What to Name Your Doberman Pinscher

When trying to decide upon a good sound name for your Doberman Pinscher, you will want to choose something that the Doberman himself will like and will respond to; you may have to try different names at first.

Some strong suggestions for sound Doberman names are Aries the Greek God of War, Zeus the Greek God, and Magnum, after the powerful handgun. These names all revert back to power and war because of the original purpose of the Doberman.

However, if the Doberman is a female, you could name her something more soft and beautiful such as Aphrodite the Greek goddess of beauty and love, sure to charm anyone she meets. You can also use names like Queen or Lady Godiva, after a bold noblewoman who rode naked through the streets of England.

The name should have a certain amount of respect and forcefulness to it because of the Doberman breed being a sort of status symbol. This is a highly respected breed and deserving of such respect because of the sacrifices the breed has made for man throughout history in the last 150 years or so. The Doberman gave it life during the service of man during World War I and has guarded man in many situations.

Therefore calling your Doberman by a respectable, honorable name only adds to the respect man owes to this outstanding breed of the canine species. The name should also be short and easy for others to remember, as well as the Doberman itself, who must like and respond to the name when called.

It is import to find a suitable name as soon as possible so that the Doberman can learn the name quickly. Call the Doberman by its name every time you feed, play with, talk to and take the Doberman for a walk. It is important that the Doberman know his or her name and comes when it is called.

The name is also important when the time comes to register the Doberman and should be unique and outstanding. However, it should follow the true nature of the individual Doberman itself as well. For example if you do happen to name your male Doberman Magnum, you could add or revise the name to sometime like 3 fifty 7 Magnum and use a human name Joe, thus making the name read 3 fifty 7 Magnum Joe or Joe 3 Fifty 7 Magnum, which would be an outstanding and unique name for a Doberman. Moreover, the female name could be something like Aphrodite Queen of Love, or Queen Aphrodite.

On the other hand, you can simplify the naming process altogether to a simple one word name and name your male Doberman something like Spike, Max, Boss, Maximus, or name your female Doberman Xenia, Cleopatra, Medusa or Hattie.
