Introduction

The Disney movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks, released at the tail end of 1971, centered around a trio of orphans who are evacuated from London during the German Blitz in 1941 and 1942 to the small town of Pepperinge Eye, under the care of the enigmatic but practical student of witchcraft, Eglantine Price, who is attempting to learn spells in order to help the British war effort. The four of them, joined by Professor Emelius Browne, the owner of the first part of the book that he was using to teach Ms. Price her spells, go looking for a spell located in the portion of the book that is missing. The journey takes them from Portobello Road to the animated world of Naboombu, populated by anthropomorphized animals headed by a lion, King Leonidas, and back to the town of Pepperinge Eye.

Bedknobs and Broomsticks Inspired Dog Name Considerations

One source of inspiration for pet parents that are naming a new canine can include basing the name on a movie that is a favorite of theirs or one that has a special meaning to them. The Disney movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks is an entertaining film that features several interesting characters and locales that may provide inspiration for the perfect name for your dog and there are several ways in which to narrow down a list that is derived from a musical movie like this one. Some individuals may choose a moniker based on a character in the book, choosing a name like Leonidas for a brash leader of a dog, Emelius for your little con man, or Eglantine for a dog that is sensible but quirky. 

Other individuals may prefer referencing people who were involved with the making of the film, such as Mary, after the author of the books the movie was based on, or Sherman, after the brothers who wrote the songs for the film. Another source of inspiration could be either specific items in the movie such as Star, for the Star of Astoroth, featured animals, like the animals that play against one another in the soccer game on Naboombu, or even the places that are mentioned in the movie, using either a fictional place such as Pepperinge or Naboombu, or a real-life location such as Portobello road or London.
