101 Dalmatians Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When it comes to naming your new dog, there are certain factors to consider. One of the most common things that dog owners take into account is the length of the name. It is common knowledge that dogs remember only the first one or two syllables of a word. This is why a lot of dog owners choose a short name, particularly one with two, or sometimes three, syllables at most. This makes it easier to train their new dog and get them accustomed to their new name. Another thing is to choose a name that does not sound like most dog commands. For instance, the name “Kit” sounds similar to the command “sit”, and can cause some confusion for your dog.

For those getting a new dog, Dalmatian or not, the 101 Dalmatians film can be a good source of inspiration since there are literally hundreds of names to choose from. Each of the film’s Dalmatians has a unique personality. Therefore, if you decide to choose a name inspired by the film, one thing to note would be the similarities of your dog and the character whose name you chose. For example, “Rolly” is remembered for being the pup who is always hungry. So, if you have a dog who likes to eat constantly, you can name him Rolly.
