Cute Dog Names For Girls With Their Meanings – My Own Top Ten

Findlay, a Spinone with his best friend Florence, an English Pointer

Here are the names that chime with me together with their meanings.


Serena comes from the Latin word serēnus, meaning “clear, tranquil, serene”. Serena was the name of a saint – Saint Serena of Rome.


Florence is from from the French version of (Saint) Florentia, a Roman martyr who lived during the reign of the Roman Emperor Diocletian. The Latin florens, florentius means “blossoming”, verb floreo, meaning “I blossom / flower / I flourish”. 


Molly means Of The Sea Or Bitter and is English and is popular with parents for baby girls’ names.


Hattie is derived from the name Harriet. Harriet is the English equivalent of the French Henriette which was created in the 17th century as the feminine form of the French Henri (English: Henry, Harry). The name Henry comes from the Germanic words “haim” meaning “home” and “rīc” meaning “ruler, power”. Hence, the meaning of the name Henry (and thus Harriet) is Powerful Ruler of the Home, or Mistress of the Home. Hence Hattie would mean “little mistress of the home” or “little ruler of the home”.


Holly is often used for the names of baby girls born in December because of the association with the holly tree traditionally used for Christmas decorations.
This tradition began with the ancient Celts, who thought that bright decorations were lucky.
The name gained popularity in the Victorian era when there was a trend in naming baby girls after flowers.
The Victorians attributed a different meaning to each type of flower and in this case Holly meant domestic happiness.


Ruby started to be used in the 19th century, becoming popular during the late Victorian period when it became popular to name baby girls after precious gemstones. With such a precious name the Victorians thought it would bring luck and prosperity to them.


One of my Ragdolls is called Snuggles because she loves to snuggle up to me at every opportunity.


My other Ragdoll is called Twinkle (short for Twinkle Toes) because she is extremely light and elegant on her feet.


Poppet is an endearing term used to address someone you adore and expresses all the love and affection you feel for them each time you meet.


Someone who is dear or beloved.
