Introduction

Are you a Bluth-a-holic? Do you find yourself constantly quoting Tobias Funke in your day-to-day life? Are you wearing cutoff jeans under your clothing right now? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may also be in the market to name your next furry companion after the show you love so dearly - Arrested Development.

If you are a more recent fan of the show, you may not know that the series kicked off way back in 2003 on Fox Network. While it almost instantly became a comedy classic, the general public didn't seem to latch on to the story of the wealthy family who lost it all due to shady business dealings (and the son who had no choice but to keep them all together.)

As the Netflix revival has brought the show strong into its fifth season, more people than ever are having their pooches don their fandom for them with names sourced from this award-winning TV series.

Arrested Development Dog Name Considerations

So, you've decided to name your pooch after someone - or something - from Arrested Development. But where do you start? The show has a staggering list of characters (check it out sometime, you'll be astounded), making it hard to know where to start. Do you go for the obvious references using a main character, or is that too played out? Do you source out an obscure name that will grant you a knowing grin every now and then, or is that too far removed?

Whatever you decide, you want to make sure that the name is a good fit for your pooch. Take time before picking a name and really observe your new family member. What do they look like? Do they have any personality quirks or neurosis? Play on these when choosing their permanent moniker. 

Maeby makes for a cute name for any dappled doggy girl, while Mr. F could be the perfect title for a more mysterious mutt. The best thing about picking your fur-baby's new handle is that you just may have to delve back into the show to do your research. We're sure you won't mind heading all the way back to episode one and reliving one of the most-loved cult classic shows of our time!
