Got a new Yorkie? You're gonna need a name.

Unfortunately for you, Stuntman Mike is already taken, so you're going to need a plan B. That's where this list comes in. Whether your Yorkie is young or old; male or female; smart or dull as a bag of hammers, what spreads out before you here is a compendium of some of the most Yorkie-tastic naming possibilities I could come up with. There's a little bit here for everyone, so even if you don't find your exact Yorkie name on this list, hopefully it can get your own creative juices flowing and lead you to the promised land. Because nobody wants a dog named "Dawg." We're better than that.
