Are you the proud owner of a new male Chihuahua? Congrats on your new puppy!
Naming your Chihuahua is a challenge. You need a name that suits the personality of your new puppy, one that is easy to say, and of course, one that you love. These little guys are tiny but mighty and light up the room with their sassy personalities.
Chihuahuas are the national dog of Mexico, and choosing a name that lives up to that honor is quite the undertaking. Chihuahua aficionados love dressing their puppies in glamorous clothing to show off their regal dogs.
Read on for the best male Chihuahua names – whether you want something kitschy, cute, or classy.
Popular Names That Work for All Male Chihuahuas
Sometimes, you cannot figure out a name for your new pet. Thankfully, there are options out there for seemingly un-nameable dogs that suit all personalities, colors, and tastes. These are also great picks if you have not met your new dog yet!
These are the most popular male Chihuahua names of 2021:
Max is a staple dog name among all breeds, while Chico and Milo are more popular among Chihuahuas.
Just because these names are popular among Chihuahuas does not mean your doggy is not unique.
For example, if someone named Charlie means a lot to you, designating your new pet after them is the best way to remind yourself of them each day. Other inspirations may be family members or positive people in your life.
That said, if you pick a well-known name, do not worry if the name is exceptional enough. The memories you make with your Chihuahua puppy are way more meaningful than the popularity of its name!
Food Names for Chihuahuas
Chihuahuas named after food are one of the cutest things on earth. Whether you choose a name that opposes their small stature or one that is just as petite as they are, a food name is always a good idea.
A few examples of food-related, cute male Chihuahua names are:
The name Cookie suits patterned coats and sweet dispositions. If your male Chihuahua reminds you of a delicious chocolate chip cookie, pick a just-as-sweet name!
A savory name is fantastic for those pups with feisty personalities and high energy. Honey and Pepper are a good mix of both dispositions – perfect if you have not met your new puppy yet or are not sure of its personality.
Nugget is a model name for light brown or golden Chihuahuas, along with Peanut and Honey. However, ensure that whatever you pick food-wise is something you enjoy – naming your dog after something you dislike is not the best idea.

Should you choose a vintage name, make sure it is not too complex! Otherwise, you may have trouble during training.
Character/Celebrity Male Chihuahua Names
