Viper, Rogue, Wolverine—there are plenty of great Marvel names for cats and dogs to choose from.
Dogs with beautiful red or orange coats are a true pet blessing. They stand out from the pack because their coats are shiny, and their fiery reddish-orange hue is pretty rare compared to other basic canine coat colors like black, white, or brown.
Below are red-hot names for your red or orange puppy. There are so many great ideas that you might have trouble picking just one, so here are a few tips to help you narrow it down to just one name.
- Write the top five names down on pieces of paper. Whichever one you pick out of a hat is the one!
- Try calling your puppy. See what she or he responds to the most.
- Narrow your choices down to your top five favorites, and ask friends and family which name is the most suitable.
- Come up with a name that doesn’t have to do with the color of the coat! There are so many other things you can base the name off of, such as personality, breed, the type of activity the breed is known for (is it a sporty dog, a hunting breed, or a lap dog, etc.), or how it looks.

Popular Fluffy Dog Breeds
Any dog can be named something fur-inspired, but this list highlights a few exceptionally fluffy dog breeds that are perfect for a fuzzy name.
Here are some pooches we think would be great with a fluffy name:
- Pomeranian. Pomeranians are petite pups with fluff that can double their size. These pooches are classified as toy dogs, given their small stature, and they originate from Germany and Poland. They’re also often referred to as “teddy bear dogs” due to their too-cute-to-handle look. They have incredibly puffy fur and are generally tan in color. These pups are a great fit for a fluffy dog name because they are practically made up of fur!
- Husky. Huskies are native to chilly places and thrive in the cold weather. Their thick coats act as insulation against wind and rain, so they’re accustomed to icy temps. We think huskies are a great candidate for a fluff-inspired name because a husky’s fur is his biggest asset!
- Poodle. Poodles are well known for their curly fur, but in addition to being exceptionally cute, these pooches are hypoallergenic, meaning that you won’t have to worry about shedding OR sneezing!
- Bichon Frise. The Bichon Frise is one of the most iconic fluffy dogs, and although not everyone knows their name, they are quite identifiable. These furballs are on the small end, classified as toy dogs. They sport thick ringleted fur that is usually white.
- Chow Chow. This pooch comes from China, where the Chinese translation of its name actually means “puffy lion dog”. This nickname is so fitting because these pups have so much golden fur that it looks like they have a mane!
- Samoyed. The Samoyed is actually native to Siberia, and has historically been used to herd reindeer. These dogs are pure white and have puffy fur to protect themselves from the elements. The puffiest part might actually be their tails, which look like cotton candy!
