If you’ve got a new pooch joining your family, you’ve probably spent a lot of time considering names. The process of choosing the right “handle” for your new canine family member can be quite difficult. Some people like to use names from foreign languages for a little cultural flair while others favor names that reflect common personality traits. But since laughter truly is the best medicine, many people like to combine the best of both worlds by giving their new canine pal a name that makes them giggle. Funny dog names are becoming a popular trend. Since registered purebred dog breeds have two different names, an every day call name and a longer registered name, families can double their fun by thinking up a witty registered name with the perfect call name attached.

Here is our list of the top funny dog names to consider for the next pup to enter your life:
