Chocolate labs are a fan favorite of millions of people and the color goes especially well for lady dogs. But what name suits such a dog? Here are 200 great names for female chocolate labs. Some you may already have thought of, others are shameless food puns, and quite a few are just lady or unisex names we fill fit these gorgeous brownish dogs.
Naturally, there are countless thousands of names you can go with. Plus, the best names are the ones we choose because of a personal connection or an inside family joke. Still, the couple of hundred suggestions below will at least help give you some ideas or inspiration.

What Makes For A Great Name For A Female Chocolate Lab?
Sure, many of the popular suggestions do sound great, but what is it that makes a dog name work? We’ll cover plenty of purely color-based names below too but is that all there is to naming your pup?
It’s the personal touch that makes a name work – it has to be something that feels right to you. Whether it’s a relative’s or a friend’s name, or the name of a celebrity, if you like it, that’s all that matters.
Of course, there’s the psychology of dog names too. According to that line of thought, human names should be avoided for pets so that we don’t anthropomorphize them. Although, we don’t really see much harm in that – to each his own.
Another thing to consider is how much you want to train your lab. Retrievers can be trained for various work tasks such as guide dogs or hunting – picking a training-friendly dog name can be effective in that regard.
But, to help you pick a bit more, here are some more suggestions below.
