Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Names - For Girls and Boys

Are you ready to bring home royalty? The Cavalier King Charles is a beautiful Spaniel breed and these floppy-eared cuties are worthy of a regal name. Do you need some inspiration to choose a great name for your new dog? Luckily, we love putting together name suggestions for different breeds. Today on AnimalWised we will list our favorite Cavalier King Charles Spaniel names for girls and boys, as well as a brief run-down of the breed! Let's begin!

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Hailing from the United Kingdom, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was a favorite among royal and noble families in England. In fact, Mary Queen of Scots was escorted to her beheading by her little toy spaniel. It was her son and great grandson Charles I and Charles II that inspired the name of this gorgeous breed.

Their floppy ears, characteristic wagging, sad eyes and charming personality have everyone falling in love with them.

Although classed as a toy breed by the American Kennel club, these Spaniels are surprisingly active dogs who love running outside and chasing birds. If you have a particularly energetic or playful pup, we will have the right name for them on our list. Likewise, if you have a poised and graceful female Cavalier King Charles, we have apt names for them too. As with all dogs, this breed comes in a range of personalities (find out which dog matches your personality) and we have chosen a range of names for you to browse.

Names for a male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

If you are about to bring home an adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel boy, I'm sure you will have been scanning your brain for inventive names to match their majestic beauty and poise. Perhaps you have a particularly confident or playful pup, or perhaps you have a very chilled and somewhat lazy pet.

Here are some suggestions of names for a male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and some their associated traits:

  • Scruff (Perhaps ironic considering their impeccable appearance, or appropriate if your dog loves getting mucky!)
  • Joffrey (we're sure your pet will be nothing like the Game of Thrones villain, but the name sure is fun...)
  • Jester (Do you have a funny pup? A jester was a professional joker or ‘fool’ at a medieval court.)
  • Leopold (Leopold roughly translates to brave lion from German. Do you have a fearless dog?)
  • Charlie (not the most original, but endearing nonetheless.)
  • Leroy (archaic spelling of the French le roi, meaning "the king")
  • Scepter (royal or imperial authority :sovereignty.)
  • Tudor (The English royal dynasty which held the throne from the accession of Henry VII in 1485 until the death of Elizabeth I in 1603.)
  • Henry (refer to above!)
  • Windsor (the surname of the royal family of the United Kingdom since 1917.)

Names for a female Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

And now for our regal queens! We've put together a fun list of both posh and not so posh names for your Cavalier King Charles girl! Don't be afraid to get creative and adapt these names to your liking! For example: Phoebe -> Pheebs. A simple change, but completely alters how you view the dog. Give it a try!

Our suggestions of names for a female Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and some their associated traits:

  • Phoebe (a name fit for a true beauty. Phoebe is found in Greek mythology as a name for Artemis, the goddess of the moon. )
  • Victoria or Vicky (one of the most popular names in royalty history! )
  • Elizabeth or Lizzie (not sure if the current queen of England likes to be called Lizzie, but maybe your dog will! )
  • Charlotte (the female version of Charles. You can opt for the unisex name Charlie too!)
  • Xenia (the Ancient greek concept of hospitality. This name would be ideal for a friendly and polite dog. )
  • Madame (if your female dog is a bit of a diva or a 'madame' then this is the ideal name for her. )
  • Sheba (a Biblical and Quaranic figure...well if you're a dog lover you probably idolize them like we do!)
  • Daenerys ( This force to be reckoned with is a Game of Thrones favorite and we completely understand why. )
  • Alice ( you may immediately think of Alice in Wonderland, a well-spoken and somewhat curious girl. If you have a curious pup, then this is the perfect name for your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel! )
  • Theodora (can also be altered to Theodore for a male. This pretty name literally translates to God's gift. If your dog is your everything, then this name is the one!)
