Actor Inspired Dog Names Considerations

Are you a proud owner of an adorable Yorkie? Legendary actress Audrey Hepburn used to own a cute Yorkie too, so you can pay an homage to her by naming your new pup – Audrey! Perhaps your doggo has prominent eyes (maybe a Pug or a French Bulldog)? If so, why not name them Fraser, after wide-eyed actor Brendan Fraser? For owners of energetic and funny dogs, a name such as Scott, after Sean William Scott who played Steve Stiffler in the American Pie movies, could be perfect!

An English Cocker Spaniel with long blonde ears might resemble one of a beloved Friends character Phoebe, so naming them Lisa, after Lisa Kudrow (who plays Phoebe) is just fitting! Speaking of Friends, a puppy who is always hungry and perhaps white can be named Blanc, after the actor Matt LeBlanc, who plays Joey. Danny, after Danny De Vito, can be a perfect name for an adorable short doggy, and a tall, dark, and handsome pup will be the talk of the town with the name Jackman, after an undeniably good looking and talented Australian actor Hugh Jackman. A ginger lady with the name Christina will remind everyone of a favorite redhead, Christina Hendrix, so, get creative!
