9 Susie


There are two kinds of names that you can give to a pet: a name that sounds like something that a pet would have, or a name that is essentially a human name.

Some people may name their dog Susan, and you might love that idea and think that's exactly what you want to do. Or you might want your pet to have a name that sounds a bit more like something that a dog would have.

Why not go with Susie? Susie the dog just sounds good and it's definitely adorable. You will absolutely get compliments and people will tell you that it's the perfect name.

8 Claude

Claude the cat sounds awesome, almost like it could be a children's book. It's a bit more elegant and sophisticated than your typical name, but it's still cute since it's one syllable and fairly simple to spell. Chances are, your cat will appreciate having such a cool name – well as much as a cat could!

Plus, you can pat yourself on the back for this great name choice. As well, a dog named Spot just has to be adorable. It's a fact and it's just the way that things go.

6 Jamie


Maybe you love the idea of giving a dog a human name because it's something different and would make you stand out from everyone else you know who has given their dogs traditional dog names. That's fair.

When it comes to human names for dogs, Jamie would be a really adorable one.

You can also go with James since that's another name that just sounds cute, but there's something special about Jamie. It's also gender neutral which is helpful when you're set on a name but haven't actually picked a pup yet.
