Yorkies are small- there’s no question about that! In size anyway: we all know that inside that little body is the heart and personality of a giant! So here are some lists that have Yorkie names that mean ‘small’:
Names That Mean Small
The first list are people names that mean ‘small’. In fact, there aren’t many of these at all, and a couple of them are a bit of a stretch (like Heather, Teal and Wren: these are all small plants or creatures rather than truly having the meaning ‘small’). However, the list may appeal, or may get your mind thinking about other small creatures, plants or items that have a name that might suit your Yorkie…
|Name||Meaning||Male or Female?|
|Heather||Small Flowering Shrub||Female|
|Paola||Italian, Spanish derivation of male 'Paul':||Female|
|Pauline||Feminine derivative of Paul: Small, little||Female|
|Dewayne||Variation of Dwayne: small and dark||Male
|Duane||Variation of Dwayne: small and dark||Male
|Dwayne||Small and Dark||Male|
|Pablo||Spanish variation of Paul: Small||Male|
|Vaughan||Derivation of Welsh 'bychan': small||Male|
|Vaughn||Variation of Vaughan: small||Male|
Words That Mean Small
This second list is much more fun: it is a list of words sourced from the Thesaurus, all synonyms of ‘small’. I added a couple myself (Sharkbait, from Disney Pixar’s ‘Finding Nemo’, and Minnie): and I’m sure there are lots of nicknames that could be added to the list- I just need your help !!
|Subatomic||Teentsy, Teensy, Teeny||Weeny, Weensy|
Small Things: Insects
This final table lists a few insect-types whose names might be suitable for a Yorkie puppy.
Please feel free to make a few suggestions: these lists don’t yet please me- I’m sure there are a lot more names that could be aded!!
