Are you looking for a cute name for your Chihuahua puppy?

Chihuahua is the smallest dog breed in the world. Chihuahuas typically weigh between 3 and 6 pounds (1.5 to 3 kg) fully grown. They come in a variety of colors. Their small size and gentle nature make them perfect for people who live in apartments or condos or want a dog that they can easily take with them on trips. 

Here are 200+ of the best Chihuahua names to help you find the perfect fit for your little friend!

How to choose a name for a Chihuahua 

Choosing a name for your new Chihuahua can be a daunting task. There are so many names to choose from, and you want to make sure you pick the perfect one for your little friend. Here are a few tips to help you choose a name for your Chihuahua.

First, think about what you want your dog’s name to represent. Do you want it to be cute and cuddly? Or do you want it to have an edge? Once you’ve decided what kind of vibe you’re going for, start thinking about names that fit that description.

Next, take into account your dog’s personality. Is your puppy playful and energetic? Or is he more laid-back and lazy? Again, think about names that fit those qualities.

Finally, don’t forget to take your dog’s size into account. Names that mean large, such as Max, may not be the best fit for the world’s smallest dog breed. Unless, of course, you want to choose such a name because it’s funny.

The Chihuahua breed comes from the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Because of the Hispanic roots of this tiny dog, Spanish names are a perfect choice for Chihuahuas. That’s why we have also listed many Spanish names here.
