Introduction

Ahh, who can resist Hugh Grant at his dreamiest -- a life-loathing man-child, only capable of superficial relationships. In About a Boy, Hugh is taken to school by a youngster with wise observations and a bad taste in clothes.

The beauty of this film is how the unlikely friendship unfolds, much to the surprise of Will, the character played by Hugh. The movie dabbles with humiliation, arrogance, and the meaning of life, while still technically being able to call itself a romantic comedy. A hybrid of genres, the film has been able to collect a host of different fans, making it no surprise that many folks out there would like to name their doggo using the motion picture as inspiration.

Come with us as we pick apart the best names from 'About a Boy.'

About a Boy Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When choosing any name for a pet, there are some aspects best to touch on before making up your mind. The first thing you're going to want to consider is how it feels to actually say the names you're zeroing in on. What may look like a great idea on paper can actually be a verbal nightmare when you're hollering it at the top of your lungs to get your pup to come back to you in the park. So, stop what you're doing and say your prospective pooch name out loud! If it feels weirder than you'd hoped, it might be worth trying out different monikers.

If you're hoping to use "About a Boy" as a reference when titling your doggo, there are a few more points to ponder over. Some names in the film will be more recognizable than others, meaning if you select the name 'Marcus', more people may draw the connection than if you settled on 'Barney', which is slightly more common.

Another thing to think about it if the name suits your woofer well enough. Whether it be their physical appearance or their bold personality, take some queues from your four-legged friend when it comes to finding them the right name.
