Dog Names

16824 different names
Of all 368086 Border Collies
From the ISDS Stud Books
(with the number of times used of each: dog/bitch)
First list (stud books 1947-2000): April 2002
Last update (stud book 2018): March 2019


Goto dog names that start with:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z



Note 1: Approximately 0.1% of the dogs have been registered with a wrong gender. This was only corrected in the database if this wrong gender could be confirmed by later use of the dog for breeding. Therefor some names below that are clearly male or female, like Meg, Nell or Ben, still have counts for the other gender.

Note 2: Although the database has been constructed with great care, some names might be wrongly spelt because some of the dogs only occur a single time in the ISDS stud books and the automated processing of the books was not completely faultless on those single occurences (also see the article ISDS Border Collie Database).


Some statistics:

16824 different names
10015 names are used only a single time
2246 names are used twice
1015 names are used three times
