The Labrador Retriever is one of the top breeds in the country, and for good reason! These dogs are friendly, loyal, and always ready to play. If you are bringing home a new Labrador Retriever puppy, take the time to carefully consider what you will name her.
If you need help coming up with the perfect name, consider one of the top ten names for female Labradors listed below:
- Bella – The name Bella comes from the Italian and Latin words for beautiful. Not only is this a fitting description of the Labrador Retriever in terms of its physical appearance, but these dogs have beautiful souls as well.
- Rosie – A decidedly feminine name, Rosie is a great fit for a Lab who has a gentle and quiet demeanor but who isn’t without her faults. You might say that her faults (or thorns) are what make her so beautiful.
- Sophie – This name is a Greek name that means “wisdom”. While it may not seem like your Lab is wise when she is digging through the trash or chasing her own tail, there will be moments when you look into her eyes and feel like she sees right into your soul.
- Zoey – The name Zoey comes from the Greek word meaning “life” and it is a name that fits the Labrador Retriever perfectly. These dogs are very energetic and they are determined to live life to the fullest with you by their side.
- Lexi – This name is shortened from Alexandria which is an English name. If you want to give your Lab a name that sounds strong but has a cute nickname, Lexi is the way to go.
- Sadie – The name Sadie comes from the Hebrew for “princess” and there can be no better name for a Labrador Retriever puppy. You will love and adore your puppy so much that you will treat her like a princess.
- Gracie – This name is inspired by the word “grace” which has connotations of kindness and mercy. Labrador Retrievers are known for their patience and for their kind, gentle demeanors.
- Stella – The name Stella means “star” which is very fitting for the Labrador Retriever. After all, your Lab is destined to become the star of your life and her personality will always shine bright.
- Molly – The name Molly is an Irish name and the Irish are known for being fiery. Labrador Retrievers are sweet, for sure, but they are also unpredictable and full of a fiery passion for life!
- Sugar – There are many things to love about the Labrador Retriever, especially the breed’s sweet and gentle nature. You may even say that your Lab is made of sugar!
The top ten female Labrador Retriever names listed above are a great place to start when you are ready to start thinking about what to name your puppy. You don’t necessarily need to pick a name from this list but you may find inspiration in one or more of the names listed above.
