575 Dog Names That Start with A {Male & Female Names!}

Share with fellow dog lovers!

Are you looking for a name for your new puppy–or names to give shelter dogs as they wait for a forever home? Below you’ll find 575 dog names that start with A, from traditional names (including some that were popular nearly two centuries ago) to goofy names that just might match your pup’s personality.

Choosing a dog name is no easy feat–but try out some of these for size. When you narrow your list to a few possibilities, give them a test run. Stand up a yell the name like you’re calling your dog from across the dog park. Does it feel right? Or is it awkward? Is it too close to a member of family’s name and might cause confusion? Or does it remind you of someone you’d rather not be reminded of? You want this name to make you smile!

575 dog names that start with A for your new puppy

My favorite dog names end in a Y sound (we shared our hearts and home with our Australian Cattle Dog named Alby for years). If you like a Y sound at the end of a dog name, try adding a -y, -i or -ie to the name and see how that works.

We’ve got female dog names and male dog names below–and many work for both!
