Finding the right name for your pug can be difficult sometimes with so many ideas around. Given that your pug has a unique body shape, his name should be unique too.
In essence, when we give our pet a name we want to point out their personality, temper and we tend to use our sense of humor because we know that if the name is humorous it is hard to forget for the others.
Ergo, it is very important to notice the main traits of your pug as he can be charming, short-muzzled, hilarious, and playful, he makes funny sounds when breathing or “communicating” and his name and nickname (if you intend to use any) should reflect the most of these features, and also by adding a bit of authenticity, your pug name will be unique.
