Introduction

When it comes to unique characters, there are few that rival Casper the Friendly Ghost. Outside of the fact that most other famous comic subjects center around people or animals, Casper also went beyond ghosts and into a deeper realm of the supernatural in an era where conventional reigned supreme (the 1930s). But beyond being super likable, Casper also rubbed elbows with other classics like Baby Huey, Hot Stuff the Little Devil and Wendy the Good Little Ghost, opening the world of Harvey Comics into a veritable universe of characters that soon became the basis for cartoons, films, video games and now, a killer list of dog names.

Casper Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Coming up with an appropriate Casper inspired name isn’t as hard as catching a ghost, but it certainly isn’t easy either, especially if you want it to have some meaning. You can always just give your dog the name of your favorite character but if you prefer a bit more depth, considering starting by making a list of their most defining traits to work off of.

For example, if your dog is super friendly but happens to scare people anyway, then the names Casper or Friendly would both be good choices. If they’re big, somewhat cowardly or generally act like an oversized infant, then the names Baby or Huey would certainly work well. If they share characteristics with some of Casper’s brothers, such as being particularly smelly, long or having an insatiable appetite, then the names Stinky, Stretch and Fatso are all easy options. If they’re generally good-hearted by are often mischievous, then the names Hot Stuff, Little or Devil are all good options. 

Of course, there are a ton of characters from both the Harvey Comics universe as well as the modern film or video game adaptations, so pick your favorite version, re-immerse yourself in it and see what pops out!
