Boxer Name Trends

When looking at the data, we do see a few trends with boxer names. Vintage names like Oscar and Henry are on the rise with this breed—perhaps because their adorably wrinkled foreheads are reminiscent of mischievous old men? Whatever the reason, be prepared to encounter a smattering of boxers with monikers like Charlie, Winston, and Oliver at the dog park.

We also see an influx of light-hearted names like Daisy, Lulu, Champ, Honey, and Lucky. All of these sweet names are gaining popularity with boxers, and rightly so considering the funny, affectionate nature of this breed. Just don’t let those names fool you—boxers continue to be one of the most graceful and dignified dog breeds! They just don’t take themselves too seriously.

Finally, names connoting strength, like Bear, Tank, and Thor, are much more popular for this breed than for many others.

Boxer Name Advice

If you’re having trouble deciding, keep in mind that great boxer names can come from many different sources of inspiration, such as your favorite drinks, books, celebrities, your heritage, or even dog breed history. For example, your puppy might sport a big animal name like Moose or a color-themed moniker like Ginger.

Another consideration when choosing your boxer name? Dog training. This is of particular importance for puppies. When you’re teaching your new dog to respond to commands like sit, stay, or come, you’ll want to be sure their name isn’t a source of confusion. In other words, avoid puppy names that sound like a common dog training cue, such as “Bit,” which could easily be misheard as “sit.”

Of course, what matters most is that the dog name you choose rolls off your tongue. The best boxer names will make you happy. We’re fans of the “backdoor test” for dog name selection. It’s pretty much what it sounds like: stand at the back door and call out your new dog‘s potential name. Saying “Dakota, it’s time for dinner!” or “Finn, leave it!” helps take the name out of your imagination and into reality.
