Food: We all love it and we all need it to survive (much like dogs). What better way to honor your passion for everything edible than bestowing a name fit for the king or queen of snacking on your new furry friend? (In case you didn't know, dogs can be foodies, too.)

If you’re the type of pet parent that loves healthy foods and want to make sure your new doggo feels the same, a name like Lemon, Ginger, Bran, or Butternut might just be mint to be.

Or, if you have a strong sweet tooth, an adorable name like Oreo, Madeleine, or Brownie are wonderful options for your new little cupcake.

Many celebrities have already taken a page out of the (recipe) book when it comes to their pet names, including Victoria and David Beckham’s English cocker spaniel Fig, Camilla Mendes’ maltipoo Truffle, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s Alaskan Klee Kai dog Porky Basquiat, and Reese Witherspoon’s French Bulldog Pepper.

If your dog is black or white (or any color, for that matter), there are surprisingly numerous food names for dogs that fit those descriptions. For example, Beans, Blackberry, or Starbuck make fun black dog names, while Snowball, Coconut, or Alfredo might just be the perfect name for your white canine companion. Whether your new dog or puppy is a girl or a boy, there’s a cute food name for your pup. Get inspired with our editors’ list of favorite food names for dogs.
