Hopefully, some of these names will help you think of a good name for your German shepherd puppy. In the meantime, we will explain a bit more in detail some ways names are required registrations like the SV and others. When a breeder has their first litter of German shepherd puppies the very first litter must have all of the puppies names begin with the letter “A” and when that breeder has their second litter then all of the puppies in that litter must start with the letter “B” and so on even if different German shepherds were bred as long as they come from the same kennel or breeder.

In the United States, the more commonly known AKC registration allows you to name your dog however you see fit as they do not have the same restrictions on German shepherd dog names as the German SV does. Make sure you check with the breeder for potential name requirements especially if you plan on importing a German shepherd puppy.

WHAT WOULD YOU NAME HIM?

German Shepherd Puppy Names

Remember your German shepherd puppy will grow into an adult German shepherd dog so try to make sure what you plan to call it as a puppy will still fit when he or she is an adult. Remember if you are getting an imported puppy your name will be more restricted however you can be very creative with your puppy’s name and additionally his actual name can be different than his call name. For example, if your litter happened to start with the letter “Q” but you wanted to name your German shepherd “Princess” instead of saying “Queenie” you could put Queenie on the registration papers but call her Princess! You could also simply call her Queen’s “Princess”. Have fun with it and your German shepherd puppy name will come easy.
