You thought making up your mind, convincing your family, and finally deciding which breed you want in the house was enough to adopt a dog? Well, this is not the precise end. You have just begun, and there is so much to explore in this long journey.

And as long as you are here, let us first see what you want to name your dog — oh, confused? Haven’t finalized a name yet? Do you not know what word would match with your furball’s personality? No worries, we love Corgis, and we have been closely working on a list of some adorable names for this super friendly and sweet breed.

But before that, let us see some characteristics of this breed; who knows, you also get a fantastic idea while reading? Corgis originated in Wales have a history of being the herding dog. Though there are two breeds in Corgis: Pembroke Welsh Corgi and Cardigan Welsh Corgi, they are called “Corgi” when talking about the breed in general.

Let’s see the general characteristics of Corgis and the difference between Pembroke and Cardigans, to shortlist some great names.

Corgis have short legs, long bodies, and a double fur coat. They are super friendly and energetic. The only significant difference in terms of appearance between Pembroke and Cardigan is the tail. Cardigans have their tails intact while Pembrokes get their tail docked.

So, here was our small list out of many names for your little bunch of happiness coming home. You think you do not have it figured out yet, but you would know what name it has to be when you have it.

However, do not stress a lot on the name and kill the excitement already; cherish this new happy change coming in your life right now. For the name, you have got some time.

Did you know that some people do not decide the names beforehand? 

Instead, they bring their dog home, observe him for a few days, experiment with different names, and see which name the dog can relate to most. You can try that too. But, instead of putting so much thought and burning your brain, you can let your dog choose his name. It would be fun, wouldn’t it?

Though as much as a fun process this is, you can keep some things in mind while choosing a name:

- It matches your dog’s personality (at least their physical appearance). For example, a Corgi named Hunter or Rusty would look funny, no?

- It should be simple and easy to pronounce. It is not only you who would be calling your dog’s name. So be sure that people around you, in the vet clinic, and a stranger on the road can call his name too.

- Also, fun names are cool. But can you call that name around on the street? If no, then cut it right out.

There is no science involved in the process. It is just naming your baby. You can find hundreds of options, but when that one name comes, you know that is it. So, keep exploring.
