I'll be getting a GSD(shiloh) here in a few months and want to give HIM a name that is German. Here's a list of what I've found so far.

Arno
Benno
Blitz
HeinrichHektor
Ingo
Kuschi
Oskar
RolfTristan
Viktor
Adicus
Bodo
Brutus
Bruno
Enzo
Falk
Kaiser
Tyr
Ulrik
Zyklon
Blaz

My one and only dog Bear (lab/brittney mix) died a few years ago at 16. Blaz means bear in German. I'm thinking I might go with that.

I also like:

Heinrich (only Heinrich I know of was Himmler though)
Zyklon (kind of sounds star treky)
Viktor (I like this one too)
Hektor (sounds good)
Enzo (Ferrari?)

I'll also be teaching him the basic commands (sit, stay, heel, speak, come, jump, etc...) in German. Should be pretty cool to have a dog that only listens to me.

Shoot me some more German names for a male dog and I'll decide on one here in a few days.

Hey, if you're posting names, would you also post the meaning of them as well. I don't want to name my dog some puss name

Sturm

And only an 88 would name their dog "Zyklon"

How about some female names, too? I am looking to get another GSP, and already have used Greta.

Sturm = Storm

Drang = Circumstance (I always wanted 2 GSDs named those two names)

Zyklon = don't name your dog that. See flatfender's response above.

Most German names sound mean when you say them, for instance one of my faves: Schmet-ter-ling

Yell it out loud and it sounds like you're pissed.


Rächer is a good name for gs. It means revenger.

You might want to rethink using Blaz as a name if you're also going to use German commands, too.

Blaz sounds somewhat close to the command "Platz".
Don't want to confuse the pooch.

AFAIK, dogs respond best to single syllable
names.

My vote is for Blaz (given the meaning to
you).

Yeah, Zyklon-B bears a certain connotation.
My wife wouldn't go for a German name and gave our GSD a name she was saving for our future daughter. I had to name our kid when she was born.

Never knew about the Zyklon, best to skip that one!

Mauser's a new one. That also sounds good. I'd like to keep it one or two syllables at the most.

From a link provided by drewucf yesterday.

Type in a word or phrase and translate it to German etc.
Pick from men or womens voices to hear it spoken.

Flecken is german for "stain"... so when you call him you won't be yelling "CUM STAIN"
