Last Updated on November 17, 2021 by Marco

If you are considering getting a new pup, there are many decisions that will need to be made.

First of all, you will make a choice about which breed you want – do you want a purebred dog or are you happy with a ‘mutt’? (And there is a lot to be said for a good mutt, they can make great pets!)

Secondly, there is the decision to be made, would you prefer a male or a female pup? Or doesn’t gender matter?

Finally, you will need to select the perfect name for your new dog. Would you like an exotic name for your husky? 

If you are reading this article then it means that you have chosen a male Husky. Read on for our list of top male husky names and their meanings. Happy choosing!

General Ideas On Names For Huskies

Many people like to choose a name for their Husky that reflects the dogs’ heritage, so something that may be a Chukchi word, for example. These names sound exotic and they really suit the breed. 

Huskies are known for their wolf-like looks, so a wolf-type of name may be a good choice too. Huskies are not a frilly little lap-dog, no sirree. With a husky boy, you have a cool-looking strong dog that needs a name to suit!

As a general rule of thumb, dog trainers advise that you do not give your dog a name that is longer than two syllables, as it makes it easier for you to call them and for them to respond to you.

Strong / Cool Husky Boy Names
