Some of the bravest soldiers in the military aren’t people. Dogs have been joining courageous soldiers in wars for years. If your dog was part of the military or is going to be, then you want a good name for them that reflects that military culture. Here are a few to consider.

Artillery Names

Artillery names

Because dogs can sometimes be effective weapons of war, some soldiers give their dogs a name after certain artillery. One excellent example is Rifle. Soldiers are taught in boot camp the importance of their weapon. Without it, they’re as good as dead.

Some might even extend to this to their dog if they have one. Dogs serve an important purpose in war. They can sniff out enemies, explosives, and other problems that might end a soldier’s life. Because of that, a name like Rifle is a perfect choice.

Another great name for a military dog is Bazooka. Everyone loves a good bazooka. A dog with this name might have an explosive personality or always come in handy when it matters the most.

Bullet is another popular name for military dogs. Whether your dog is fast or tends to carry additional ammunition for troops, they’ll wear their name proudly.

One last name based on artillery and weapons to consider is Dagger. While not always used in warfare these days, a soldier always has a dagger at their side. For those with a dog, the dog is also likely always at their side. Dagger is a great name for any dog who is loyal to its very core.

Military Rank

Dogs military rank

Another great place to find names for your military dog is through military ranks. While you may have a general already, everyone knows that the real general who receives the love of the soldiers is a dog named General. For dogs that tend to think they’re the pack leader, this name is a great choice.

You might also want to name your dog Captain or Commander. Captain, especially, can be shortened to ‘Cap’ which can be useful to shout in the heat of the battle when you can’t spare many syllables.

Code Names

While naming your dog after a military code name might be confusing during an actual conflict, it’s a great choice for those who are returning from war and want to name their dog something. Charlie, Echo, Bravo, and Delta are all great code words that can make for interesting military dog names.

You might also want to consider code names for missions from the past. Overlord, for example, might be an interesting name.

Past War Heroes

For those who love to mix in a bit of history, you might also consider famous military soldiers and leaders from the past. Not only does this honor them, but it also gives the dog a regal and noble name.

You might want to them Eisenhower or Ulysses. For ancient military leaders, you might want to consider names like Alexander, Hannibal, Genghis, Julius, Spartacus, or Leonidas.

By using these names, you could just end up making the dog a legend.

Military Machines

One final place to find great military dog names is by looking through military machines. It’s not uncommon to find a dog named Tank in the ranks. You might also find one named Jet or even Boomer.

A few other examples might be Humvee, Rocket, Gunner, and Heli.

Making a Great Name

The above ideas can be used for inspiration to make a great name for your next military dog. As long as it invokes feelings of nobility, courage, and perhaps a bit of terror, it’s satisfactory.
