Affectionate, intelligent, playful, and completely adorable, it's no wonder that beagles are the seventh most popular dog breed in America. Initially bred for hunting small game, such as rabbits and hare, beagles possess an excellent sense of smell and an inquisitive, active demeanor. Their large dark brown or hazel eyes are offset by long floppy ears and a face that could melt your heart into a puddle.

Finding the perfect name for your sweet beagle companion can be overwhelming. Luckily, we're here to help! Whether you're looking for a name inspired by your beagle's expert sniffing abilities, cute coloring, tendency to sing, or love of food, you're sure to find the right name to suit your new best friend.
