25 Movie-Inspired Dog Names

Naming a dog is a freaking difficult job. Even before my arrival my Mommy had named me Mowgli. However, things do not always happen according to a hooman’s wish, alright! When she ‘called’ me Mowgli I didn’t give a damn. She tried her best for a whole day and finally gave up. She started searching for dog names and Man, I tell you. Both Dad and Mom were calling me names – few of them were cute and few just plain. From Jon Snow to Khaleesi to Sky to Copper, I heard them all until that moment when someone (I don’t like to take sides. My parents fight over who came up with the name in the first place), called me Mufasa and then Muffy. I know I loved it and went running towards them. That’s my dog naming story.

From cult classics to cartoons, movies are a great source for finding inspiration for naming your canine companion. Here are some of the movie-inspired dog names to get you started.
