No, you can't just call your dog "good boy" their whole life. Whether you're going for good-natured or goofy, these goldendoodle dog names are sure to do the trick.

Donning curlicue coats from their poodle parent and often golden locks from their golden retriever lineage, the goldendoodle is a sight straight out of a story book—Goldilocks comes to mind. And when it comes to picking a name for your new family member, just like Goldilocks, their new moniker needs to be just right.

Goldendoodle names range from cutesy ones that play up those precious features—like Waffles (what could be sweeter?), to the silly, like Napoleon (inspired by the curly-haired titular figure behind cult classic Napoleon Dynamite). Of course, "goldendoodle" is a catchall for the classic golden retriever mix. So while some do inherit their poodle parent's golden color, others may be more of a fiery redhead or a bold black. Whichever color your pooch rocks, the list below has more than 150 nifty names to suit your permed pup.
