100+ Nerdy Dog Names: Ideas for Brainy & Eccentric Dogs

Nerds, geeks, outcasts, odd-balls – in our eyes, they are super incredible and beyond adorable! We love them so much that we had to create a list of pet names geared toward these magnificent and brilliant minds! Of course, a few of the names may be eccentric and not for everyone, but if you happen to be here, well, these names must be right up your alley! 

Now, some of the ideas we have below are cool and brainy references to pop culture, including movies, books, and games, as well as history, math, and science! We could be keen on any of these as we ourselves are a bit nerdy (and proud!), or because we get these clever vibes from our pooches. Either way, hope you enjoy!

Long live the nerds!
