Dog breed Welsh corgi pembroke for a walk in the beautiful forest.So you’ve got a new furry family member in the house! How exciting!?! Seriously, we’re kind of jealous (by which we mean really really jealous). The question now lies — how will you share the big news with all your friends and family? Sure, you could post a little something to social media, but why not make the announcement more special? After all, your mailbox has been full of birth announcements lately — why not share your big news in the same official manner? Puppy Announcements are totally a thing and we say — why not?! Dogs are family too. Check out some adorable puppy announcements below and customize them with your doggie’s info! The best part is, Postable will print, address, and mail them all out for you– giving you some extra time to go off to the park and play fetch and what not.

But first… What will you name the little buddy? Looking to name your new friend something unusually awesome? We got you.

Along with the most adorable puppy announcements you’ve ever seen here is a list of 18 quirky AF puppy names you can use with your newest little furry friend.


1. Dog the dog.

Literally, name your dog — Dog. If you ever lose your memory, this name will be pretty darn easy to remember. It’s also pretty funny.

2. Chewy

Hopefully, it’s not because your new pup likes to chew your things… But because he(or she) is just the chewiest looking puppy out there! Plus if you’re a Star Wars fan, this is a good way to pay tribute.

3. Mr. Pickles

Because you like pickles and it makes for a really fun dog name.

4. Dobby

Harry Potter fan? Then you’ll know what an honor it would be for your pup to carry that name!

5. Sir Henry.

Because you’ve always liked the whole English proper thing and your new pup is pretty much a British Knight in the fur.

6. Paperclip

You don’t always need a reason.

7. Special Agent Jack Bauer aka ‘Jack’

If you get a kick out of imagining your new pup is the new spy on the block. Also if not and you just like that show. That’s cool too.

8. Beans

Because it’s cute and your new dog is cute. Makes perfect sense.

9. Fish

This one makes no sense at all. Which makes it perfectly quirky.

10. Mister Miyagi

Perhaps your new dog is the epitome of zen. This quirky pup name would be perfect.

11. Peanut

Is your new dog destined to be big? Girl or Boy, it doesn’t matter — name your big furry friend Peanut to for pure irony (and giggles).

12. Noodles

Because you like noodles that much. We get it.

13. Latke

Are you sensing a theme here? Food is pretty much the best thing in the world so why not honor it by naming your dog your favorite meal. In this case, it’s potato pancakes. Who doesn’t love potato pancakes? What were we talking about?

14. Taco

Taco Tuesdays are your jam so it’s a perfect fit! Little Taco will may even win you some free tacos next time you bring him/her to your neighborhood spot.

15. Virginia Woof

If you’re a literature fan, this little pun inspired doggy name is perfect.

16. Hairy Pawter

Another pun inspired name for the win. But you have to say paw-ter and get a giggle each time!

17. Nigel

Because it sounds serious and sometimes that’s funny.

18. Pies

The word ‘dog’ in Polish. Or really take the word ‘dog’ and translate it to any language.
