Corgi names are easy to choose with these inspiration packed lists. But first, our favorite 100:
Choosing Corgi Names
If you’re anything like me, then your dog is your child. As such, choosing a name for your Corgi is just as important to you as choosing a name for a newborn baby.
This name will stick with your dog for the rest of its life, so it has to be a good one. The problem is, it can be annoyingly difficult to decide on which name you like best.
Matters get worse when the pup will be a family dog and you have to take into account several opinions.
We know how important and tough naming your dog is, so we’ve created this article with lists of all different kinds of names, from classic, to cute, to unique, in the hopes that we can help you choose the perfect name for your new Corgi.
If you’re having trouble naming your new Corgi, then you might be wondering if the internet has some tips for you. There are many websites that have subjectively good tips, but none of them have any scientific weight behind them.
For instance, the advice we came across most often when researching for this article were things like “don’t give your dog a multisyllabic name”, “end the name with a vowel sound”, and “don’t use common names to avoid confusion at dog parks.”
While these tips aren’t bad in essence, we couldn’t find any scientific evidence to back them up. However, there may be some merit to them.
For instance, there are many lovely multisyllabic names, but most of us end up shortening those into a nickname anyway.
At the end of the day, there are no rules when it comes to naming a dog, the choice is one-hundred percent yours!

Fun Facts About Corgis
Corgis are pretty popular dogs; their photos are constantly being liked and shared across social media. But how much do you actually know about them? Here are some fun facts about Corgis!
There are two types of Corgis: the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. They look very similar, but the Cardigan Corgi has a longer tail and rounded ears.
Corgis were bred from short-legged herding dogs and are still part of the herding group today.
According to Welsh legends, Pembroke Welsh Corgis were used to pull fairy carriages. They also served as the noble steeds that warrior fairies would ride into battle.
As of 2018, Pembroke Welsh Corgis are the 13th most popular dog according to the AKC’s Most Popular Breeds list.
The word “Corgi” is believed to mean “dwarf dog.” However, there are some discrepancies in translation, so the name may also mean “watchdog.”
