2. Don't Be Too Confusing

You'll be saying your dog's name a lot, so it's important to make sure that you have a name you don't feel sheepish about calling out in public. It's important to remember that you also want to be able to catch your dog's attention, without confusing him in the meantime.

This can mean avoiding names that sound like popular commands so that you don't overwhelm or confuse your four-legged pal. Ideally, you'd want to steer clear of homophones for words like 'sit,' 'stay,' or 'no.'
