Do you have a crazy sweet tooth? Can’t seem to get enough of sugar? When it comes to having a sweet tooth, everyone has the candy that they just have to have. Though you may want to eat healthier, that doesn’t mean you have to forget about candies altogether, that would be crazy. Now that you have a new addition to your home, why don’t you choose one of the candy names for dogs on our list for them?

Candy names for dogs are not only sweet, but they’re also unique, and they will bring those traits out of your pup. Your dog may not be allowed to eat sugary stuff, and you know they are missing out, but at least by giving them a candy-inspired name, it’s like you’re sharing the sweets you like with them.

In this article, we’re going to be giving you a list filled with sugar-inspired names for your pup. We wanted to make the process easier for you, so we divided the names into two categories: male and female. But, candy names tend to be unisex, so it’s best that you scroll through both lists, that way, you won’t miss out on the name for your pup.

Female Candy Dog Names

She’s the sweetest girl you’ve ever had and loves to make sure that you know it. She’ll look lovingly into your eyes, lick you awake in the morning, and cuddle you when you’re feeling down. She’s your best friend and knows just when you need some sweetness in your life.

Well, if she’s this sweet, then she deserves an extra sugary name.

  • Blondie: it’s a light brown colored brownie, but besides that, it’s also an adorable name for a pup with a light-colored coat. Don’t you think so?

  • Candy: well, we couldn’t do this list and leave out one of the most popular and obvious candy names for dogs. Candy is sweet, made with tons of sugar, and, well, everyone loves eating candy. Your pup is well liked by everyone, and it seems like people can’t get enough of her.

  • Caramel: sugar that’s been cooked until it’s brown; it’s the main ingredient for many of your favorite candies and treats. Without it, you’d be missing out on your favorites.

  • Cocoa: it’s the perfect name for a brown coated pup. Cocoa is what makes chocolate, and everyone loves chocolate.

  • Dot: this is a small bit of candy that’s attached to a small strip of paper or tape. Though it may not sound great, kids would spend hours eating them; they’re fun to pop into your mouth. Once people are introduced to your girl, they can’t get enough of her.

  • Godiva: this godly chocolate is made in one of the chocolate capitals in the world: Belgium. Godiva’s chocolate is sweet, rich, and creamy—everything you want in a piece of chocolate.

  • Gumdrop: this sweet little gummy is covered in tasty sugar. Its size is what makes it so cute, and, of course, we think this name would be great for a little Pomeranian or Miniature Poodle—basically, any breed that can fit snug in your arms like a little gumdrop.

  • Jelly Bean: who doesn’t love eating jelly beans—we all have our favorite color and flavor! They’re small, yet full of flavor, which is why people love them. If you have a tiny pup with loads of energy, you should think about naming her Jelly Bean.

  • Jujube: they’re colorful, they’re small, and they’re delicious—need we say more? If your pup has a multi-colored coat and is just a ball of sweet energy, well, how can you ignore this name?

  • Kit Kat: break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar! There’s more to Kit Kat than just the theme song. A Kit Kat is a chocolate-covered wafer bar that’s full of crunchy goodness. If you have a pup that has a brown coat, naming her Kit Kat would be perfect.

  • Lollipop: well, let’s not kid ourselves. Lollipops are essentially sugar on a stick, but they’re so fun to eat! They’re innocent, they’re juicy, and you can eat them any time of the year.

  • Pixie: this sugar-filled stick has a little bit of a sour taste to it, making your face squish together. But they’re so fun to eat. Nevermind about the sugar rush, you can’t get enough of it.

  • Pocky: do you start with the bottom end or the top end? Everyone has their own preferred way of eating this cream-coated goodness. Your dog may not do things the traditional way, but that’s okay. You love her for who she is—or him, maybe, because Pocky is a gender-neutral name.

  • Pudding: though this isn’t necessarily a candy, it is a sweet and silky treat. If you have a wrinkly and pudgy Pug or Bulldog, the name Pudding would ironically suit them.

  • Sky: you’ve probably had a Skybar before and if you love them, well, why not name your pup after them? Sky, for short, this candy bar is made up of four candy bars in one. Not just your average candy bar. Rather, it’s layered.

  • Sugar: well, without sugar we wouldn’t be having any candy. Sugar is the essence of what candy is—it’s the foundation. Your pup is similar; she’s what keeps you grounded and level-headed.

  • Taffy: as a child, if you were given taffy, you knew you’d have to spend some time chewing on it. It’s sweet and super chewy; you have to put work into this candy if you want to taste its goodness. Kinda sounds like your pup, right?

  • Tootsie: the Tootsie roll commercials are one of the classics and made people question, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie roll? If this was one of your favorite childhood candies, well, then this would be a great name for your pup.

  • Twix: biscuit and caramel covered in chocolate are what makes a Twix bar. It’s also a sweet and slightly mischievous name for a pup. If she loves getting her nose into everything, she’s a Twix.

Male Candy Dog Names

No one else is as sweet as your four-legged man. He always there for you, loves making you laugh, and did we mention that he loves cuddles? If he were human, he’d be your dream guy.

Though he may be a pup, this doesn’t mean that his sweetness should go unnoticed. If anything, he needs a name that’s going to bring the sweetness out of him.

  • Andes: Andes Mint is a sweet and rather spicy candy. It’s perfect for a dog who’s cute but also displays a hint of an untamed spirit—and you love him for it.

  • Bonbon: if you’re looking for a more exotic name, why don’t you name him Bonbon? Though it means candy in a variety of other languages, it has a little bit of sophistication to it.

  • Cadbury: when Easter rolls around, you know what’s hitting the candy aisles: Cadbury cream eggs. They don’t come around all the time, in fact, they’re a once-in-a-blue-moon treat. But when you get one, it’s delicious.

  • Charlie: no, this isn’t a candy, but this is the name of the boy who found the golden ticket and went into Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. He’s sweet, he’s humble, and he deserves all the chocolate in the world.

  • Cookie: now, this isn’t a candy, but it is a sweet treat that we just can’t ignore. Cookie is a cute name for a clumsy pup that’s just a ball of love.

  • Fireball: when you first brought your pup home, he was sweet and quiet, but now, he’s a little fireball.

  • Fudge: the options with fudge are endless. Coming in virtually any flavor, fudge is a great name for any dog, regardless of the color of their coat.

  • Goober: just by hearing the name, you know that this name is for a complete goofball. Goober is a chocolate-covered raisin, but most importantly, it’s a name for a pup that doesn’t take life too seriously.

  • Gummy: a shortened version of Gummy Bear, this name is perfect for a giant pup that has a heart of gold. Yes, he’s a big boy, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a sweetheart.

  • Henry: if you’ve ever had an Oh Henry bar, then you know how amazing they are. A blend of chocolate, caramel, and peanuts, Henry is the perfect combination of everything you need to satisfy your sweet tooth.

  • Hubba: when you see this name, you think of a giant St. Bernard or a Great Dane, and you’re right. Hubba Bubba gum is a big chunk of chewing gum, and you need a strong jaw to handle it.

  • Nougat: a nougat is made of egg whites and honey, giving it a warm creamy color. This name is great for a pup with a white or cream-colored coat.

  • Pez: you may have your own collection of Pez dispensers, and if you do, then you know how fun and entertaining these candies were. It was more than just candy; it was an experience.

  • Reese: these peanut butter cups are one of the most beloved candies on the market. They’re sweet, they’re salty, and now that you think of it, they’re starting to remind you a lot of your pup.

  • Skittle: we all know that skittles come in an array of bright colors and a punch of flavor. Your pup has a crazy, multi-colored coat, and well, is starting to look more like a skittle every day.

  • Smartie: these little chocolates are covered in a bright colored sugary coating. But more than that, this name is for a pup that knows it all. You can’t fool him, and you both know it.

  • Werther: Werther’s Original is delicious. It’s sweet and smooth in just the right way, and you won’t get bored of it anytime soon. Your dog may seem ordinary at first glance, but you know he’s something special.

  • Wonka: of course, you’ve seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; nearly everyone has. Willy Wonka is the master behind all these crazy candies; he’s the candy genius.

  • York: no, we’re not talking about New York; we’re talking about York Peppermint Patties. Not everyone is a fan of chocolate candies, and that’s okay because these candies are delicious. They’re a little spicy, so if your pup has a wee bit of an attitude mixed in with his sweetness, this is the name.
