German Shepherd boy dog names

So you finally found the dog you want to be part of your family for years to come and it is now time to decide on a name! Naming your dog is an important step, after all it needs to suit him as a puppy and as he matures into an adult dog. It also needs to be a name you are happy saying and hearing a lot each day! What we name our dogs also says a lot about who we are. When you are out in the dog park calling for Edward or Bella, or perhaps Darth Vader or Yoda you are giving a clue to other dog owners about your own likes and personality. Once it was the case that dog names were separate from our names. Nowadays rather than using names for dogs like Rover more owners are using people names. Sometimes people will name their dogs after other famous animals or people but it can also help to think about what a name means and match that up with your dog.
