The most familiar Mongolian word for a pigeon or dove is Тагтаа tagtaa.

Хүүрзэгэнэ khüürzgen or Хүүрцгэнэ khüürtsgen appear to be an alternative words for 'dove' but the latter is now used by naturalists more narrowly for the turtle doves (genus Streptopelia).

In Inner Mongolia, the turtle doves are known as Хөдөг khödög, a term which is found in the Qing-era Wuti Qingwan Jian. This name is also found in the variant form Хүтгээ khütgee (or Хүтгээ шувуу khütgee shuvuu 'khütgee bird').
