Are you wondering, "What should I name my Pomeranian?"... Do you wonder if the Pomeranian name YOU chose is on our list of Pomeranian names?
What you choose to name your puppy is a big decision. Did you know that it's best to not choose a name that starts with the same sound as a command word? And if you have more than one dog, it's best to pick names that are not too much alike (either those that start with the same sound or that rhyme). That way, it will be easy for each dog to respond well when you call out to him or her.

Before You Decide on a Name
Choosing from the many Pomeranian puppy names is much more important than you may think. The name you choose will decide how well your Pomeranian recognizes that name. This is a huge element in training your dog.
In addition, if the name does not fit certain elements, other animals in the home and your Pomeranian may become very confused.
Both the number of syllables in the name and the beginning consonants sounds will play a major factor.
Dogs do learn to know their names; however dogs generally only pay attention to the first syllable of the word. That is why dog commands are very short. For example, “Sit” instead of “Sit down now”. When an owner does say, “Sit down now”, the dog is listening to and noticing the first syllable: “Sit".
For example, let’s use a Pomeranian dog name such as “Jumping Jack Jelly Bean”, if that name was chosen, the dog would respond to “Jump” as their name…Since that is the 1st syllable that they are hearing and paying attention to.
This does not mean that you need to choose a name with only one syllable. However, the name should have a strong sounding 1st syllable; as you will want your new Pomeranian puppy to have an easy time learning their name. This, of course, is very important in regard to training your dog for all sorts of things, including house training command training and heeling.
If you have other pets in the home, it is best to not choose a name that begins with the same syllable as another pet. For example, if you have a cat named “Rocky” and a Pomeranian puppy named “Roxanne” as this can be very confusing for both of your pets.
It will be best to choose a name that begins with a different sound than any other pets and any human family members for that matter too!
