364 beautiful Japanese dog names for your pup

Whether you’re looking for traditional Japanese dog names, ideas inspired by nature, or names derived from some of Japan’s most beautiful cities, I have the solution for you!

I’ve put together a huge list of ideas below, inspired by the Land of the Rising Sun!

We have SO many names to go through, so let’s dive in!

Japanese dog names

Huge list of the best Japanese dog names ever

I was really excited to make this list because I actually lived in Japan for two years! It was a long time ago (1999-2001), but I still miss it every day. There are SO many beautiful Japanese names for both male and female dogs that I found it difficult to narrow them all down to a somewhat manageable list.

Honestly, I could have come up with 1000 more! But I didn’t want to overwhelm you, so I stuck with 100 for both boys and girls, and then added a few ideas inspired by Japanese cities, towns, and natural features (like mountains… there are SO many beautiful peaks there).

Any of these names would be perfect for an Akita or Shiba Inu! Of course, you don’t have to have a Japanese dog breed to use one.

Let’s get started, starting with the girls, okay?
