3. Spinach

Reason: Popeye taught us back in the day that spinach makes you strong. By giving your dog the name Spinach they'll probably become strong too. That's how that works, right?


9. Burrito

Reason: Filled to the brim with goodness, it's no surprise everyone loves burritos. You know who else everyone will love? Your dog. Also, how cute will it be to have a little Burrito running around?

12. Alfredo

Reason: Alfredo is the perfect, creamy and heavy sauce for a cold, winter's night. Snuggling with your dog will have the same warming effect. Plus, you could totally call them Alfred and pretend you're Batman.


13. Marshmallow

Reason: Marshmallows are soft and squishy and your dog will feel the same way when they snuggle against you. And there's SO many nicknames that could come from this. Marsh? Mellow? Mell? ADORABLE!


18. Peach

Reason: Peach is the perfect, one-syllable name for your new pup. They'll be just as delightful as a summertime peach. Plus, you could call them Princess Peach to get fancy.

21. Sausage Roll

Reason: Sausage rolls are like the more classy, British cousin of hot dogs. Rather than taking the easy way out and naming your dachshund, Hot Dog, step it up and name them Sausage Roll instead.
