DACHSHUND NAMES

The Dachshund, fondly referred to as the “weenie dog”, comes in three sizes and three varieties. Choose from short-haired, wire-haired, and long-haired dogs, as well as normal, miniature, and toy breeds ranging from a mere 8 pounds and less than 12 inches high to the largest breed at 20 pounds and up to 18 inches in height. These intelligent dogs, as the name might suggest, originated in Germany (the word Dachshund means badger hound), meaning that many Dachshund names are chosen because they are of German origin. However, because they are short and long, and they are extremely intelligent, other Dachshund names are chosen due to appearance.

As the name states, Dachshunds were bred as badger hunters and are part of the hound family. This means that they howl, giving rise to the popularity of the name “Howler” among this and many other breeds of hound. Most commonly, Dachshund names are chosen to poke fun at the body style of the Dachshund. If you can’t decide what to name your Dachshund, some popular choices are listed below to give you a head start.
