So, you’re the owner of a Westie puppy. Congratulations! Now the fun part comes – picking out a name!
Westies, otherwise known as West Highland White Terriers, are friendly, spunky companions. With their reputation for being loyal and confident, these lovable furballs are sure to provide a lifetime of fun.
Beneath that cute exterior, Westies are quite tough. Bred to hunt rats and underground rodents, Westies will often chase anything that moves. That certainly doesn’t make them any less popular, though. According to the American Kennel Club, they are the most popular of the small terrier breeds!
Smart and adventurous, Westies love to play. Their independent nature makes them great dogs for both singles and families alike. Whether they’re zipping around or napping peacefully, Westies will steal your heart.
Coming up with a Westie dog name can be a lot of fun. One look at your sweet puppy probably brings to mind a plethora of adorable names. It’ll probably be tough to narrow them down!
No matter if you go for traditional, cute, or cool, remember that your puppy will have their name for life. So choose wisely and pick a name that truly reflects their personality. Here are great Westie dog names to get you started!
28 Female Westie Dog Names
Female Westies look like little princesses, but they consider themselves leaders of the pack. These tough sweeties know what they want, and they have no problem telling you!
Always up for play and adventure, female Westies are also independent. They aren’t usually lap dogs, but they tend to bond with all family members versus only one person, making them particularly desirable for multi-person households.
When considering names for your female Westie, picture yourself calling out to her over and over. Does the name fit? Does it have the right ring to it? Is it something you can live with for a very long time?
Do you prefer a super feminine name like Daisy, or do you want something more neutral like Chloe? Does she give off a sophisticated, old-fashioned vibe like a Victoria? Or maybe she feels more like a Billie, a spunky little tomboy.
Whatever your taste, you’re sure to get some great ideas with our list of 28 female Westie dog names.

27 Westie Boy Dog Names
Male Westies take longer to mature than females. They have tons of puppy energy and want to play all the time!
Male Westies also tend to be territorial. These tough little cookies can get aggressive if they feel threatened, so tread carefully. That said, male Westies are delightful and friendly dogs. With training, socialization and patience, your male Westie will grow into a fine young man.
If your male Westie is the definition of cuteness overload, a name like Ollie might suit him well. If he’s more of the distinguished type, perhaps Archie fits the bill. If he’s super high energy with no signs of slowing down, maybe you’ll want a name like Wiley.
No matter which name you ultimately choose for your Westie male, you really can’t go wrong with any of our 27 choices.
29 Cool Westie Dog Names
Hold on, dude! Is your Westie prince or princess more of a suave and sophisticated type? Or maybe they give off a hipster vibe. If so, you’re probably looking for a name with a unique ring to it.
What makes a name cool? Well, cool names have a certain “it” factor that makes them special. Your tough cookie might feel like an Everleigh. Or your upbeat boy might be a Dash. Then again, maybe you have a little guy who just might be a Bones.
Picture your little guy wearing his Moto jacket and bandana. Is he a Cash? Or how about your little girl with her flowered hair bow: A Destiny perhaps?
