The Maltipoo is a mix of two adorable breeds: the Maltese and the Poodle. These fluffy dogs are full of personality and love, with bright-white fur that can be silky or curly. Maltipoos are loving dogs that are good with children and make great companions. Naming one of these special dogs can be more difficult than you’d think since so many names would fit them perfectly! We’ve compiled this list of 160 names for Maltipoos, and we’re sure you’ll find a name that both you and your pup will fall in love with.
How To Decide on a Name for Your Maltipoo
Some dogs immediately inspire a name based on their looks (like snowy) or personality (like dancer), and some dogs are frustratingly difficult to name. Using your dog for inspiration is a great idea when naming them, as you want a name that reflects their qualities while being happy to use it their entire lives!
If you prefer a name that doesn’t take itself too seriously, naming your Maltipoo after a favorite food item or as a nod to your favorite hiking trail can also be a great way to give them a unique name. Whatever you choose, make sure you’re comfortable shouting it across the dog park!
