Congrats on your new pup! No doubt you're giddy about adding a new member to your family. But choosing a name for your new white dog may also be a little stressful. Don’t sweat it. While some people choose dog names that are very personal (like after a favorite restaurant) or timely (after today’s hottest movie character), the distinctive color of your white dog may be just the thing to stir your creative juices. 

For some people white is the color of cold (inspiring names like Blizzard). Do you have a fluffy white dog? What about a fluffy white food name like Marshmallow or Popcorn? Maybe your new pooch is a combination of colors, like black-and-white or brown-and-white. Her color scheme could be just right for a name like Checkers or Patches. 

Whether you have a white girl dog or a white boy dog, we’re happy to help with some inspiration.  Here are 150, yes 150, names for white dogs. Try a couple on and see what fits!
