Wrap Up

Wonderful dogs like the Dachshund deserve wonderful names. Compared to other dogs, it’s actually quite easy to find a fitting name for a Dachshund because they have many unique traits that will surely make the name game easier for you. You can either pick a name that highlights their short legs, their sausage-shaped body, or their shiny coat.

Many of the names we’ve included in the lists above were inspired by such one-of-a-kind characteristic, but you don’t have to limit your imagination. How about giving them a name that underlines their floppy ears? If you’re not one to be concerned about outward appearances, how about naming them after their excitable and exuberant nature?

You can also name them after their surprisingly solid hunting skills. Don’t let others look down on your dog. Just because they don’t look like they can run fast, doesn’t mean they really can’t. Dachshunds are skilled hunters. They are hard to beat when it comes to flushing out badgers in the wild. In an urban setting, that ability translates to a rodent-free house. Quite the amazing dogs, aren’t they?
