Introduction

Cartoons are nostalgic for many people who remember, with a fondness, the fun and fancy-free Saturday mornings of their childhood.  Families with children have a fair amount of modern-day cartoons playing at any given time of the week as well.  When families choose to bring a dog into their home, many people want their new dog's name to reflect those happy, nostalgic times by giving the family dog a cartoon name.  Additionally, many cartoon names are chosen because a family's children are called upon to help with the naming of the new dog; and kids love cartoons.

Cartoon Dog Name Considerations

Naming your dog after a cartoon character or choosing a cartoon show inspired name does not come with many considerations.  However, some considerations should be made for the breed, size, and color of your dog.  For example, if you adopt a Great Dane you may want to consider Astro, Marmaduke, or Scooby.  All three of these dogs are famous cartoon Great Danes.  If you want to go with a non-cartoon dog cartoon character name, consider the characteristics of your dog and try to find a name that fits.  Greyhounds are well-known for the speed and fleet abilities so choosing the name Flash, after Flash Gordon, makes sense.  Smaller white dogs, such as the American Eskimo or the Maltese are perfect fits for Snow, as in Snow White.  

Children will often choose the name of their favorite characters when you have them name the new addition to the family.  Popular Disney princesses such as Elsa, Anna, Moana, and Belle are very popular with little girls.  Boys might choose Blaze or Ninjago for their new dog's name.  Consider that your children might also choose a name that does not fit the size, breed, or color of your dog to a tee.  However, you should also remember that you're allowing your children to develop a meaningful bond and learn responsibility through the naming and caring for the family's new dog.

Jasmine got her name during a compromise between my daughter and I. My daughter is a Disney fanatic and I’m a gardener who regularly saw our puppy rummaging through our Jasmine shrubs in the backyard. The name stuck and is a perfect fit! Jasmine’s half princess and half outdoorsy naturalist. She has both beauty, smarts and loves to smell every scent at her disposal in the backyard.
