We are here to help you choose one of the best Yorkie names, and also to explain some elements about Yorkshire Terrier names that you may not have thought about. We have hundreds of excellent names for the Yorkshire Terrier, so let's get dive into this so you can get started and find the one that fits your puppy perfectly.

Here are so important FAQ that are important to know:

Can my Yorkie puppy have more than one name?

The answer is yes. When you register your pup, he or she does not need to have just a first name...For example: Tiger. There is much more that you can do....And there are several ways to do it.

For AKC registration, you can give your puppy a name that is very long, up to 50 characters. However, the standard registration of a name (and ownership) is up to 36 characters...therefore, if you choose to go beyond that and up to the maximum of 50, it will cost $10 more to do so. Keep in mind that the space between each name counts as a character. For example: Bouncing Baby Boo Boo has 18 actual letters....However there are 3 spaces between the 4 words....Giving you a total count of 21 characters which is under the 36 or 50 limit so you would be fine.
Option A: You can choose one long name. It can be any random names in any order and many owners will make sure that the common name that they call their Yorkshire Terrier is in there. For example, the Yorkie name that your puppy is registered as may be: Rowdy Rocking Cowboy....And then Cowboy would be the name that you commonly call your pup.

Option B: You may choose to have an "also known as" in the official registered name. This is shown as the common "AKA". An example of this would be: Living Life To the Limit AKA Cuddles. 

Option C: You can have numbers in the name if you choose. These can be Arabic numbers such as 1, 2 or 3...or you can spell them out. The first option would look like this: Smiling Each Day AKA Smiles 5. The other option would look like this: Smiling Each Day AKA Smiles Five. When numbers are used, it is most often done by breeders who will choose similar if not exact names for each Yorkie puppy, but then change the number that follows.

Can I Put Any Word Into My Yorkie's Name?

No. But almost! One of the most important rules is that you may not put the word "Champion" in the name. This is reversed for dogs who have won at AKC show events.

A Yorkie name cannot be simply "Yorkshire Terrier". No dog may be registered as the name of the breed that they are, or any other official breed for that matter.

Swear words are not allowed.

The following words are not allowed to be any part of a name (no matter how long or how short): male, female, bitch, stud, dam or sire.
You may not have a registered Kennel name in there. Only breeders can do this, and they can only do so once they have proven to the AKC that they have had an established program for at least 5 years.

You CAN use the terms: Sir or Lady.. And this is done a lot. For example, for a male one may choose something like: Sir Newton of New York AKA Nippy....And for a female: Lady Rose and Orchids AKA Flowers.

Can I Change the Name of my Yorkie?

Yes you can. For a small fee, you may change it....And if you decide to do this, we do suggest still using the "common" name that you use for your dog at home.
How Do I Choose?

We have a wonderful list to give you some great ideas...But first there are a few things that you should keep in mind. Dogs often only listen and pay close attention to the 1st syllable in a word. For example, if a person named their dog "Candy Cane"...the Yorkie puppy would only pay attention to the "Can". Just saying that first syllable would get the pup's attention. Saying the last word of "Cane" would usually not work well. Therefore, it is best to choose a name that has a strong sounding 1st syllable.  

Keeping this in mind, you will not want to choose a Yorkie puppy name that sounds very similar to the beginning of a command word. This can cause a lot of confusion and it can hinder command training. For example, "Sit" is a common command that you will want to teach your Yorkie. Therefore, choosing the name "Sid" may not be such a great idea...When saying them, they sound a lot a like. You will want the name for your Yorkie to be distinct and unique from any training word that you will be using...now or in the future.

Finally, before you choose, keep in mind that what may seem good for your new puppy may not be a good fit when he or she is a mature adult. When a Yorkshire Terrier has a long show dog coat, that falls gracefully to the floor, an elegant name may be in order to fit the dog.... On the flip side of the coin, an adult with a shave Puppy Coat will have that young appearance for life and a fun, silly name may fit just great. Ultimately, you must remember that you will be saying the name hundreds of thousands of times...So it should be one that you love....And one that you can picture yourself repeating over and over....And over!
