Since Labradors are the most popular dogs in America for 29 years running, there are tons of pet parents naming their new labradors every year. As a chocolate labrador mom for almost 20 years I’ve heard so many great suggestions and guesses from people who meet my dogs.

In this blog post, I share 30+ classic chocolate lab names and 55+ unique names. I also split the lists into great names for boy dogs and girl dogs. Some of these are inspired by names I hear people suggesting at the dog park, others are from some of my favorite labradors (including my own!) and a few are borrowed from suggestions in dog mom Facebook groups.

How do you pick the best name for your lab?

Chocolate labs make amazing companions, pets and best friends! They deserve a name that lives up to all that. You might want to consider a name with a meaning tied to some of the activities you plan to do together.

If you love hunting and the outdoors, there are names for that. If you think chocolate labs are the SWEETEST dogs (which they are!), maybe you should go for a candy-inspired name.

I also love to get dog name inspiration from some of my favorites books and musicians. With my old dog Lola there were so many songs we could sing to her! With my current lab Lucy I love to sing “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”

Sometimes you need to meet your new lab pup or adult rescue in person to know what their name should be. I hope my suggestions here help you narrow down the options.
