The Best Redneck Dog Names by Greg Marlett

Let's face it, there are far more red neck dogs in this country than snobby uptown show dogs! With that in mind, I did some research to find some good ol' names for some blue collar pups. Some names that will fit your redneck dog to a "T."It's always best to name your dog with a one or two syllable name, so I tried to keep this in mind during my extensive redneck dog name research.

First, for the ladies, we have some real classic redneck name gems: "Maddy" (English - from Madeline); "Rhiann," (Welsh, a mythological nymph); "Roxxy," (Redneck, sweet, but slow); "Ruby,"(unknown, possibly a real gem);
"Faylene,"(unknown origin); "Hattie,"(Redneck, push with foot??);
"Layla," (Arabic,dark beauty); "Misty," (American, meaning covered with mist/dew); "Bambi,"(Italian, "child"); "Baylee," (Unknown origin. Variations include Bayleigh/Bailie (never Bailey!) and "Lexus," (from Alexa, American, meaning defender).

For the country gentleman, coon-hound, who'd rather hunt than go to dog shows: "Pervis," (American, son-of-a-_); "Otis," (Son of Otto - whoever he was); "Rebel," (to resist or defy authority as in Johnny Reb - How many dogs fit this name?); "Roscoe," (Old Norse, from the deer forest); "Roy," (French, regal one - as in "old Roy");"Rufus," (Latin, red haired one); "Elrod," (Redneck, meaning asleep under a tree??); "Earl," (English, meaning leader); "Harley," (English, meaning spacious meadow); "Homer," (Greek, meaning promise); and Jed, (American, meaning friend of God).

How's that for starters? Going forward, we will continue the search for high quality, unique and totally cool redneck dog names. Have fun naming your dog and enjoy the company of your new canine friend!

With a new dog or puppy around the house, find-out how easy it really is to begin training. Picture the dog you'd like to have, so you can begin training the easy way.

I have always liked Clyde for sad eyed hounds, such as basset or coon hounds, Black & Tan.

Nearly all Basset hounds can be called Sam.
