Last Updated on January 25, 2022 by Marco

Do you have a new husky in the family who happens to be male, and has red fur? Then you will be in need of a list of male red husky names. Keep reading to discover 20 cool husky dog names for your red boy!

1. Aries

The star sign Aries takes its name from the Greek god of war. And whilst we would never want your husky to have a war-like temperament, this name still makes a lot of sense for a male husky because Aries is ruled over by the planet Mars, which is also called the ‘red planet’ due to the rust in its soil. 

2. Axl

Any Guns ‘n’ Roses fans out there? If you are a fan of this unforgettable band from the 1980s and 90s, then you will definitely recall the lead singer Axl Rose and his long and lustrous mane of gorgeous red hair. 

3. Blaze

Any word that is associated with fire would make sense as a male husky name. The word ‘Blaze’ is Latin for ‘fire’. In Old English, this word means ‘torch’, or ‘bright flame’. Today, the word is also associated with making a new path, or ‘blazing the trail’. This would make the name even more suitable for an intrepid husky who loves to explore nature.

4. Clancy

This gorgeous Irish name comes from the Gaelic word for ‘son of the red warrior’. So if your red husky boy seems to have a brave nature, then perhaps this is the perfect name for your new puppy.

5. Clifford

Clifford the Big Red Dog is one of the most beloved children’s stories of all time. Written by Norman Bridwell in 1963, it tells the story of a little girl who owns a red dog that is as big as a house and their adventures. Clifford is a big softy who loves his family. Does this sound like your dog?

6. Erik

History buffs will be familiar with Erik the Red, the Viking who founded the first settlement on Greenland in circa 985 C.E. Erik the Red was also the father of Leif Eriksson, who is supposed to have been the first European to reach North America. Erik, the Husky has a really nice ring to it, don’t you think?

7. Flynn

Flynn is an Irish surname that has been gaining increasing popularity as a first name in recent years. This name means ‘reddish or ruddy complexion’. Others believe that this name means ‘son of the red-haired one. Either way, it is the perfect choice of husky name for a red male husky.

8. Fox

The word ‘fox’ is an obvious choice for any animal with a red coat. Foxes are beautiful and intelligent creatures, with the most remarkable and striking red fur. So if you have a male husky with a coat that is true red color, then ‘Fox’ would make a great name. We just hope that your dog does not grow up to be as wily and cunning as its namesake though!

9. Jasper

Jasper is a gorgeous semi-precious gemstone that comes in all shades of red. It also makes for a super-cute husky name! Plus it was the name of the red-haired Welshman who was the great uncle of another famous redhead, King Henry VIII of England.

10. Phoenix

The phoenix was the legendary bird that rose from the ashes. So given this mythical creature’s association with fire, then it may perhaps take your fancy as a name for a red male husky.

17. Rowan

Another cute Irish name that means ‘red-haired’, and perfect as a husky name. Saint Rowan was a sixth-century saint of Ireland. Not that anyone would ever expect a husky pup to be saintly of course!
