Introduction

Considered to be one of the greatest and most well known musical acts of all time, The Beatles' music has been incredibly prominent in both pop and contemporary culture; monuments, government missives, and national holidays have all been named after the iconic and influential British Rock band and their timeless songs, so it only makes sense for Beatles fans to name their four legged friends after the Fab Four to pay homage. While only two of the four band members have lived well into the 2010's, the philosophies of peace and love that all four members of band championed will live on across the universe and all of time immemorial.

Beatles Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The names of the Beatles, the titles of their world famous songs, and many of the memorable names within them could all serve to give your dog a very poignant and timeless name. In truth, it can seem hard to initially figure out which Beatles inspired name to give to your dog due to the sheer wealth of great options Beatles fans have to choose from. One could start by narrowing their search down to the members of the band; John Lennon was known as the Witty One, Paul McCartney was known as the Cute One, George Harrison was deemed the Quiet One, and Ringo Starr was dubbed the Funny One back in the bands early days. While Beatles fans learned that these nicknames were somewhat arbitrary, as all four of the band members proved to be witty, funny, pensive, and handsome individuals in time, these old monikers can still help a Beatles fan decide which of the four band mates to name their dog after based off of their personality traits and merit as musicians. Naturally, Beatles fans may also want to consider naming their dog after one of the Beatles' timeless songs or even after one of their Albums due to how poetic and elegiac the band was with their writing.
