Most Popular Dog Names in Songs

Most Popular Dog Names in Songs

Dogs are a part of our life. Not surprisingly, many have been featured in songs. If you’re trying to find that perfect name for your dog, look no further. We’ll be discussing the most popular dog names in songs. That’s right, the names of dogs that have inspired us to sing about them! This list of the most popular dog names is varied. Some of them are happy, and some extremely sad. Some of these may bring up happy childhood memories, while others you may have never heard of.

Let’s start with the heart wrenching “Old Shep” by Red Foley. This song was sung by Elvis Presley, along with many country western singers. This is a song, but a story as well. Of a boy growing up with his dog, and happy times together. However, “Old Shep” became old and was suffering. The veterinarian said there was nothing else he could do. The boy, who had grown up the dog, decided to put “Old Shep” out of his misery. An excerpt from the song,

“With a hand that was trembling I picked up my gun
I aimed it at Shep’s faithful head
I just couldn’t do it I wanted to run
And I wished they’d shoot me instead

I went to his side and I sat on the ground
He laid his head on my knees
I stroke the best pal that a man ever found
I cried so I scaresly could see…”

I’m probably way too emotional, but, truly, I can never finish hearing this song without balling my eyes out. Next, on the most popular dog names in songs lets go for something happier. What about that obnoxious, but cheerful spelling song you probably sang when you were a kid? Bingo. Do you remember?

“There was a farmer who had a dog,
And Bingo was his name-o.
B-I-N-G-O
B-I-N-G-O
B-I-N-G-O
And Bingo was his name-o.”

Repeat it, over and over and over. I love this song. The only complaint I have is that it’s nearly impossible to get out of your head once you get going! There are many, many more. Here’s a list of the most popular dog names.

Most Popular Dog Names in Songs:

“Me and My Arrow” by Harry Nilsson
“Atomic Dog” by George Clinton
“Black Shuck” by The Darkness
“Bow Wow Wow Wow (Wild Dog on the Prowl)” sung by Mitch Ryder
“Dog Eat Dog”, songs by AC/DC
“Hound Dog” by Elvis Presley

“(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window?”, by Bob Merrill, 1953, recorded by Patti Page

“Frank” by C. W. Mccal
“Stinkfoot” Frank Zappa song
“The Puppy song” by Harry Nilsson
“Who Let the Dogs Out?” by the Baja Men
“Ol’ Red” by Blake Shelton

In my most popular dog names list, “Hound Dog” by Elvis Presley is another personal favorite. Elvis passed away in 1977, yet his songs live on. I remember as a child, my best friend and I would turn up “Hound Dog” to the absolute highest volume, and dance like we were crazy!

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog
cryin’ all the time.
You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog
cryin’ all the time.
Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit
and you ain’t no friend of mine.
