55+ Winter Dog Names – Creative Name Ideas for Your Pup

winter dog names

Today we’re going to look at creative winter dog names. Winter doesn’t officially start until December 21 according to the astronomical calendar, but people in many parts of the world will you tell you it’s much sooner than that. Here in Minnesota – or Minnesnowta as many joke – we have a foot of snow and temperatures hovering around 10 degrees Fahrenheit. For us, winter is already here.

Our yellow lab Toby loves winter. I mean, really loves winter. He stops and watches in amazement when the first snow falls down. Then he gets the zoomies as we call them and runs figure eights through the yard, delighting in the return of winter. After this is done, he is ready for his favorite part of the season: eating the snow and ice. It’s bewildering – he chomps on snow like it’s a delicacy he just can’t get enough of. We’ve given him the nickname “Snowby.”

This got us thinking about cool dog names (no pun intended) inspired by winter. We realized there a bunch of good winter dog names out there. Maybe your dog is white in color, or you got him for a holiday present, or you just like the winter season. Whatever your reason, consider these great winter dog names.
