Families have different approaches to naming their miniature husky puppies. Some families have names picked out ahead of time and some families prefer to get to know their puppy before they decide on a name. Of course, it’s a good idea to have a few names in mind before your new puppy comes home. Don’t worry too much, you shouldn’t agonize over the process. But if you need a little inspiration to help you come up with some ideas, we’ve got you covered. Here are some hints and resources to help you out with Mini Husky naming efforts:
Don’t Overthink Naming Your Miniature Husky
When your puppy comes home, he or she is probably going to answer to “puppy” or “sweetie”. The tone of your voice is the most important part of communication. Your puppy will also be observing you carefully for nonverbal cues. He or she will definitely know when you’re wanting his or her attention. Don’t sweat it if you spend the first week or so deciding on a name for your pup. There’s no huge rush.
Pick a Name That Means Something to You
Your puppy’s name may end up being an inside joke with your family. You may choose a name that describes your puppy’s behavior. (With miniature huskies, Digger comes to mind. 😉 )You might even pick a favorite comic book super hero or character from your favorite book. Whatever name you eventually come up with, it should be something that strikes some resonance with you and your family. Your puppy may even clue you in if he or she likes the name.
If you can’t come up with a name that “clicks”, you can always ask for help from friends and family. Posting on social media sites like Facebook or Reddit is a popular.
