It seems that the mischievous, independent ways of this breed have had an impact on the names that are chosen for them by their families. As you can see, there are a plethora of names that touch upon their fearless spirit, including Scout, Rascal, Scrappy, and Moose.

There are also plenty of cute food-inspired monikers for this breed as well—though it’s not clear why, maybe because their owners love them as much as their favorite snack? Our favorites include Peanut, Cookie, Oreo, Chip, Sugar, and Olive. Regardless, the assortment of quirky and cool names seems appropriate for these pups that pack so much personality.

Jack Russell Terrier Name Advice

If you’re having trouble deciding, keep in mind that great Jack Russell Terrier names can come from many different sources of inspiration, such as your favorite season, movies, celebrities, your heritage, or even dog breed history. For example, your puppy might sport a famous actor’s name like Hepburn or a weather-themed moniker like Rain.

Another consideration when choosing your Jack Russel name? Dog training. This is of particular importance for puppies. When you’re teaching your new dog to respond to commands like sit, stay, or come, you’ll want to be sure their name isn’t a source of confusion. In other words, avoid puppy names that sound like a common dog training cue, such as “Bit,” which could easily be misheard as “sit.”

Of course, what matters most is that the dog name you choose rolls off your tongue. The best Jack Russell names will make you happy. We’re fans of the “backdoor test” for dog name selection. It’s pretty much what it sounds like: stand at the back door and call out your new dog‘s potential name. Saying “Roo, it’s time for dinner!” or “Lucky, leave it!” helps take the name out of your imagination and into reality.
