Your pet will be with you for the rest of his or her life. Hence, it is a must that you give it a name that it fully deserves. A regular name works for any pet. However, if you have a pit bull, then it’s only natural that you give him or her the most badass name you could think of.
Giving your pit bull a “weak” name can be a downer. But it does not mean that you cannot. The contrast between a “soft” name and a hardy pit bull is cute. Nonetheless, it is still best to go for the more badass names. Anyway, if you are clueless or running out of ideas for the best name for your pet, read the list below!
- Aiden: The name exudes badassery. Its meaning is “Little and Fiery.” The name originates from the Celtic’s sun god, Aodh — a perfect match for your small but terrible pit bull. A similar name you can use is Aydin. That is its Turkish version, which means “Enlightened.”
- Tempest: There is no special meaning on this name, and it is understandable how badass your pit bull is when people hear his name. But if you want to dig deeper on the word “tempest,” it is an England moniker that basically indicates the person or pet has a very temperamental nature.
- Shabina: It is a name of Arabic origin. It means “Eye of the Storm.” It is pretty ideal if you want your pup to be the center of attention but still maintains a calm temperament despite the attention.
- Tequila: This is a no-nonsense name that you can call your pit bull. For those who are unaware, tequila is a Spanish liqueur. It flows smoothly and you will feel it burning your system once it enters your mouth, which then unleashes your inner self — or inebriated self for that matter.
- Boris: Boris implicitly invokes the Russian in anybody who hears this name. And you know what is badass? Russians! Just think of the Russian mafia. So give your dog this name, and he will ooze a fearful aura. Whenever you’re around him, you’ll simply feel that he’s straining to unleash his wrath on anybody or anything that offends him.
- Kodiak: No, it does not come from the word Kodak. Kodiak means “Island” in Russia. However, the word means “Grizzly Bear” in Alaska. It fits perfectly given a pit bull’s nature and physique.
- Artemis: You might already know that Artemis is the Greek goddess of hunting. And basically, that is what your pit bull should be. She is a hunter that destroys her prey the moment she catches it.
- Bridget: It means “Exalted One” or “Strength.” It originated from the name Brighid, which was the name of the saint and Irish goddess of hearth, fire, inspiration, healing, and childbirth. If Bridget sounds too weak for you, use Brighid instead!
- Maajida: It means “Powerful and Glorious” in Islamic countries. Aside from the meaning of the name, being associated with the Muslims and Arabic origins makes the name more badass for your pet.
- Valerie: Sure, the name sounds sexy instead of badass. But the meaning behind this name is excellent for your pit bull. It is a French name/word that means “Health” and “Strength.”
- Tao: This is a Chinese name that means “Large Waves.” It is simplistic, yet badass and exotic.
- List ElementDrago: If your dog is as terrifying as a dragon, then Drago is a no-brainer pick. Drago means dragon, if you have not been able to caught it from the get-go.
- Heimrich: It means “Power” and/or “Ruler.” THe name Henry originated from this word. It sounds cool, and its derivatives such as Hendrix, Henry, and Harry are equally cool, too.
- Taredd: It is a rare name you will not hear normally. Its meaning is “From Legends.” The legends being talked about here is the legend of Zuess/Zeus.
- Calder: If your pit bull likes showering and swimming, a good name suggestion is Calder. It means “from the Stormy River” or “Rough Waters.” The name feels macho and strong at the same time.
- Gerrik: It is a nice name for someone or a pet that is perceived as strong. THe name’s meanings are “a Spear Warrior from Jericho,” “Strong,” and “Gifted Ruler.” It has multiple derivatives. A few of them are: Jurik, Jurek, Jarek, Gerik, and Gerek.
- Kinsley: This name gives out an aura of royalty. The word’s meaning is “the King’s Field.” Most people who are named Kinsley are typically helpful, energetic, and outgoing. If you name your pit bull with this name, it might exhibit those traits.
- List ElementAllistair: This name is apt for pit bull who will be raised as a guard dog. The name has Gaelic origins and means, “Defender of Man.” It sounds noble, and would fit a loyal pet. This name is a good conversation starter, and anyone would be awed to hear the meaning behind it.
- Trudy: Originating from the name Gertrude, which means “Spear of Strength,” Trudy is an excellent choice for a female and fierce pit bull. It is also the name of the goddess of charity in Norse mythology. Plus, it is a memorable name in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” If you want an ancient or “Middle Ages” feel for your pit bull’s name, you should choose Gertrude.
- Jaiyama: This name is an Arabic word that means “Strength.” An alternative for this name is Aiyama. In Native American, Aiyama means “Eternal Blossom.” It sounds both cute and badass, which is something that your pit bull can definitely pull off.
