We’ve gotten a few puppy name posts in this year, but we have time for at least a couple more! Looking for a name for a service dog or just a pet in general? Here’s a list of ideas beginning with the letter F. You can find my other lists, A through E, in the Guide Dog section of my blog.
Fauna (Feminine): the companion name to flora. I thought about using Fawn but I actually like the A ending here and I think it adds something to the name… namely, an “Ah” sound. Haha.
Fiorella (F): Italian, meaning little flower.
Feodora (F): Similar in sound, but a version of Theadora that apparently derives from Spain. Also means, “One who trusts another.”
Freesia (F): a flower that represents thoughtfulness, liberty, friendship, and innocence
Frodo (Masculine): I’m always bringing up the LOTR names, but really, how cute!
Frost (Neutral): perfect for a pup with a winter birthday.
Francie (F): One of Prim’s canine pals has this name and I think it’s adorable, though I am not sure exactly where it comes from.
Ferrari (M): as in the car. Particularly for guide dogs, I think car names are fun because they are your aid to transportation.
Flossie (F): a short form of Florence, this name has a vintage feel, but is not that common for people at the moment so seems like a name that could work well for a dog also.
Finian (M): Finian’s Wake, Finian’s Rainbow, deriving from an Irish name meaning “fair”
Frisco (M): I suppose this is a masculine name, although I had a Beanie Baby called this as a child that I always referred to as a girl, so take your pick.
Fabian (M): Latin, meaning “Bean grower”.
Fiesta (F): the best title for a dog who is a total party animal.
Foley (M): for anyone who has read Artemis Fowl, this was one of my favorite characters from the series. It is also a sirname and the word used for sound effects created artificially for movies and radio.
Friar (M): we’ve had Abbot, Bishop, and Chapel on previous lists. This is another religious order name. I think of Friar Tuck from Robin Hood a jolly brother, but evidently also a fierce fighter.
