Portugal is a country full of color and warmth and Portuguese dog names reflect this.
The country has a long history, and a blend of different languages and cultures, including Greek, Spanish and French.
On this page you'll find lots of the most beautiful and exotic names for your pup that reflect the soul of this bright, lively land.
To help you find the absolutely perfect fit for your dog (whether he's a Portuguese breed or not!), I've also included the meaning of each name so that you can match it to his color, size, personality etc.
Have fun choosing.....
