Corgi Names – 130+ Brilliant Ideas

Published: Last updated: by

Get ready for 130+ Corgi names that are cute, sweet and a little bit sassy – kind of like Corgis themselves!

The Welsh Corgi originated in Wales as a herding dog, and two separate breeds are recognized: the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi.

Corgi Names

For the sake of simplicity, we’ll use the word “Corgi” to represent both.

But before we dive into name ideas, we should point out what the heck is different between the two breeds. In a nutshell, the Pembroke’s tail is docked while the Cardigan’s is not. Another slight difference is their feet. The Pembroke has oval-like feet that point straightforward or slightly inward, whereas the Cardigan’s feet are round and curved outward.

As many will note, the Corgi is short on legs but big on personality. They are spirited, playful, protective and friendly – all great qualities in a breed.

If you’re lucky enough to welcome one of these wonderful pets into your home, check out these fun and unique Corgi names!

Welsh & English Male Corgi Names

As we mentioned before, the Corgi originated in Wales where it was used to herd animals, cattle in particular. In fact, the Pembroke and the Cardigan are each named for the county in Wales where they got their start.

Today, however, many people associate the Corgi with England. Why is that? Two words: Queen Elizabeth. (Well, technically Queen Elizabeth II.) She has personally owned more than 30 Pembrokes or Corgi/Dachshund crosses.

How Do You Pick The Right Name?

With so many options, how do you know which name is right for your Corgi?

We’ve been helping people pick the right pet name for nearly five years now (where does time go?) and picked up a few tips in the process:

  • Make sure it rolls off the tongue. Some names are awesome on paper but tough to pronounce in everyday life. Say it out loud several times.
  • Can you imagine loudly calling for your dog with this name? It sounds silly, but practice saying the name in a loud voice. If it feels awkward, ditch it.
  • Does it fit your dog? Make sure it’s the right name for your individual dog and fits their personality and appearance.
  • Trust your gut. When you find the right name, you’ll know it!
