500+ Husky Names: The Most Comprehensive List You’ll Find

You just brought home your very own Siberian Husky. You did your research, you found a good breeder or rescue, and you made the investment of a lifetime.

But now comes the tough part: What are you going to call your new pooch?

Picking out Husky names doesn’t have to feel overwhelming. Our guide will help you decide on which is the best name for your pup.

What’s a good name for a Husky?

Before clicking “add to cart” on Amazon for that cool collar or tag for your Husky, you should be sure of what name to place on it.

And when it comes to naming your new Husky, the best advice we can give you is to pick something short and original.

Your pet will have trouble remembering her name if you go for a long Siberian Husky name. Imagine calling for “Chancellor Good Boy” or “Sir Fluffykins.” Your fur buddy will tune you out by the second syllable.

If you choose a common name, you risk your pup answering to every owner shouting for Fluffy or Spot. You should also think about all those Fluffies and Spots running to you.

As much as we all dream of being overrun by adorable puppies, that adventure would probably get old pretty quickly.

Avoid any doggie drama by giving your Siberian Husky a simple yet unique name. One that means something for both you and your pup.

Luckily for you, you can draw inspiration from several sources.

Your Siberian Husky’s temperament, looks, and goofy antics are all excellent starting points. You can look to well-known Huskies for name ideas, as well.

What’s in a name? Famous Huskies with catchy monikers

There are famous Huskies whose names strike a balance between short and catchy. Their names also come with an air of distinction–perfect for the confident Husky.

You could always name your fido after legendary Siberian Huskies like Balto, Togo, or Mukluk. Do you prefer to take a cue from modern influencer pups?

Bruin, Glacier, Gala, and Anuko are some of the Huskies rising to Instagram fame.

You might’ve heard about Gohan, too. He’s a Husky YouTuber (yup, Huskies can be YouTubers!), best known for his ASMR videos and hanging out by the pool.

Of course, you might take a cue from Huskies on the silver screen:

  • Gus from Iron Will
  • Diesel, Mack, Sniff, Yodel, Scooper, Duchess, and Demon from Snow Dogs
  • Max, Maya, Truman, Dewey, Shorty, and Old Jack from Eight Below

Siberian Huskies stole the spotlight portraying the Stark family’s direwolves on Game of Thrones, too. It’s only fitting that your Husky bears a name like Grey Wind or Nymeria.

There are plenty of Huskies making waves in Hollywood behind the scenes, too. Many A-list celebrities call Huskies their forever friends, like these star-studded duos:

  • Aurora and Ashlan Gorse
  • Buckets and Quincy Poindexter
  • Floyd and Miley Cyrus
  • Dallas and Danica Sue Patrick
  • Kona and Nick Lachey
  • Waldo Picasso and Joe Jonas (okay, this one’s a little long, but it’s adorable)

As if that’s not enough inspiration for you, we have even more notable Husky names in store. Keep reading!
