Now It’s Time for You To Choose a Name!

After exploring our list of Chihuahua names, it is time for one of the most difficult steps of all – actually choosing one! Obviously, this is easier said than done. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be looking through our list.


We recommend narrowing the possible names down as much as possible. Then, throw out names that sound similar to any commands you plan on teaching your canine or the name of any member of your household. Next, consider what names the members of your family can actually pronounce, especially if you have children.

With your remaining list of names, spend a little time trying each one out. Some names just aren’t going to fit with a certain dog’s personality or appearance, and that’s okay.

In the end, the name you choose is completely up to you. Select one that you love!
