Choosing a name for a Bichon Frise 

If you’re thinking about adding a Bichon Frise to your family, one of the first decisions you’ll have to make is what to name your new furry friend. While there are no hard and fast rules, consider a few things when choosing a name for your Bichon.

Consider what you want your dog’s name to represent. Do you want something that reflects your dog’s personality or looks? Maybe you want a name that’s unique or special to your family. Or you just want something easy to pronounce.

Whatever you choose, make sure the name matches your Bichon’s personality. A lively dog name might not fit a couch potato Bichon.

Bichon Frisés originate from Tenerife in the Canary Islands. The royal courts of Spain, Italy, and France adopted these adorable dogs. Because of the South European roots of Bichon Frises, French, Italian, and Spanish names are a perfect fit for them.

Bichon Frises have a plush, white coat. Names that mean white make excellent Bichon Frise names.

Avoid names that your dog may confuse with another word. For example, “Snow” would be a cute name for this white breed. But it sounds too similar to the word “no” so your dog might confuse her name with this command.
