While naming a Staffordshire Bull Terrier can be one of the most creative experiences, it is also one of the most personal. The majority of owners want a good name that not only rolls off the tongue but captures their Staffie's character. While this can mean opting for a truly inventive moniker, others may opt to stick to more traditional roots. Owners should remember that the name they give to their beloved canine companion says as much about them as it does their dog.

Most commonly, owners give their dog a name that has to do with a particular physical characteristic. As the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is one that has a distinctive look, it is easy to find something to focus on.

Some examples are:

  • Muscles- for its brawny physique

  • Hazel- the color of some Staffie's eyes

  • Blue- a common coat color of the Staffie

  • Socks- for white tipped paws

  • Star- for white patches that can occur on the chest or forehead

  • Smiley- when panting, some Staffies look as though they are smiling

  • Squints- the Staffie has a habit of squinting or lowering their lids, especially when panting

  • Pie- a white Staffie that has any patches of color over its eye is commonly referred to as piebald

  • Some other options are to name a Staffordshire Bull Terrier after character traits. As most Staffies are rather genial and happy go lucky, some owners often opt for tongue in cheek names that whimsically describe the sweet natured dog:

  • Hannibal the Cannibal

  • Killer

  • Monster

  • Names more apt to the Staffie's character are:

  • Angel

  • Sweets

  • Lady

  • Sparky

  • Happy

  • Prince

  • Princess

  • Goody

  • Sprite

  • Lucky

  • A common trend these days is to give dogs human names such as Bob, Jeff, Maggie or Larry. These names give a Staffordshire Bull Terrier a more human aspect, endearing them even more to owners. In reality, there are no rules as to how, who or what a dog can be named after as long as it is constructive.

    When naming a Staffordshire Bull Terrier for the purpose of registering with a reputable kennel club, owners must choose a title that fits within the parameters of the kennel's designated guidelines. These guidelines can differ from one organization to another. Often, breeders themselves will register pups with names that use part of the parent's name, the kennel name or they may even start names with a particular letter to keep track of litters. Common names are generally discouraged but those that are allowed will be affixed with a number in the name of differentiation. Symbols, derogatory and trademarked names are strictly prohibited.
