Originating in the United Kingdom, toy spaniels were always considered a favorite of British aristocrats throughout the centuries. In fact, according the American Kennel Club (AKC), the four color patterns of the coats of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels were once associated with particular noble families.

And with their sweet, gentle demeanor, the Cavalier’s popularity is really no surprise—especially considering how well they get along with children and other pups, and their tendency to frolic and laze around (perfect combo!). We’ve rounded up the most popular Cavalier names of the year from our enormous Rover.com database of dog names nationwide. Yes, these are real names given by Cavalier owners, ranked in order of popularity. Did your dog’s name make the list?

Whatever the reason these names were chosen, they speak to the breed’s grace and elegance, and seem wholly appropriate.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Name Advice

If you’re having trouble deciding, keep in mind that great Cavalier names can come from many different sources of inspiration, such as your favorite song, flower, city, your heritage, or even dog breed history. For example, your puppy might sport a flower’s name like Daisy or a city-themed moniker like Paris.

Another consideration when choosing your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel’s 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 Cavalier 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 “Jax, it’s time for dinner!” or “Willow, leave it!” helps take the name out of your imagination and into reality.
