Standard Poodle Names

Updated: October 06, 2023

      The Standard Poodle comes with a long list of standard names. The breed is thought to have originated from France or Germany. Many of the names in the list are popular German and French names for dogs. A sample of the German favorites include Bello, Dach, and Otis. At the top of the French dog name charts are Adele, Daphne, and Noel. The Poodle was originally bred as a water dog and actually takes its name from the Saxon word podle meaning puddle. Some name ideas inspired by water are Brooke (English, 'Stream'), Kelby (Gaelic, 'Place by the flowing water'), and Vivien (French, 'Lady of the Lake'). Many female Poodle owners select elegant sounding names like Victoria, Isabella, Evelyn, and Annabelle. For male Poodles, sophisticated names such as William, Sebastian, Lucian, and Audrey are favorites.

Story of a Sir Percival: Advisor to the King

In a far-off, enchanted kingdom, nestled between emerald hills and crystal blue rivers, there lived a just and caring king named Eamon. King Eamon was renowned throughout the land for his wisdom and kindness, and his realm thrived under his benevolent rule. But there was one thing that set his reign apart from that of other rulers: his most trusted advisor was a majestic and wise standard poodle named Sir Percival.

Sir Percival was no ordinary poodle. He possessed an almost magical intelligence and a unique ability to understand the complexities of the human heart. With his regal bearing and silver coat, he was a sight to behold. The people of the kingdom marveled at the bond between the king and his canine confidant, and they knew that their ruler's wisdom was matched only by his loyal companion.

Together, King Eamon and Sir Percival worked tirelessly to ensure the prosperity and happiness of their subjects. They held council daily in the great hall, discussing matters of state and the needs of the kingdom. Sir Percival would sit attentively at the king's feet, his expressive eyes conveying his thoughts and opinions.

One day, news arrived of a neighboring kingdom facing a severe drought. Their crops were failing, and their people were on the brink of famine. Moved by the plight of their neighbors, King Eamon called a meeting of his advisors to discuss how they might provide aid. As they deliberated, the king turned to Sir Percival, seeking his trusted advisor's counsel.

Sir Percival, understanding the urgency of the situation, suggested that the kingdom share their surplus of grain and fresh water with the suffering land. He also proposed sending skilled engineers to help construct irrigation systems, ensuring that the neighboring kingdom could better manage future droughts.

King Eamon, impressed by the wisdom and compassion of his canine advisor, immediately put the plan into action. He dispatched emissaries laden with provisions and experts to aid the beleaguered realm. The people of the neighboring kingdom were overjoyed and grateful for the support, and the gesture forged a lasting bond between the two lands.

As the years went by, the kingdom continued to flourish under the wise leadership of King Eamon and Sir Percival. The people lived in harmony, knowing that their ruler and his noble advisor always had their best interests at heart. Tales of their wisdom and kindness spread far and wide, and travelers from distant lands would journey to the kingdom to witness the extraordinary partnership firsthand.

Eventually, the day came when Sir Percival grew old and weary. His once-shimmering silver coat had faded, and his once-keen eyes had grown dim. Recognizing that his time was drawing to an end, he lay down at the foot of King Eamon's throne, a peaceful smile gracing his muzzle.

As the kingdom mourned the loss of their beloved advisor, King Eamon vowed to honor Sir Percival's memory by continuing to rule with wisdom, compassion, and the unwavering belief in the power of unity. And so, the legend of the wise poodle advisor lived on, inspiring generations to come and reminding all who heard the tale of the extraordinary bond that can exist between a king and his loyal companion.
