Introduction

Tom Hanks has had an impressive acting career spanning a number of films that have found both critical and commercial success. Some of his most renowned films include Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Sleepless in Seattle and Turner & Hooch, to name a few. However, one of the films that really stick out in his resumé is the 2000 survival film Cast Away. For this film, Hanks reunites with Forrest Gump director Robert Zemeckis. The plot of Cast Away is centered on Hanks’ character Chuck Noland, a FedEx employee who gets washed up in a secluded island following a plane crash. The film shows how Chuck attempts to survive on the island by using some remnants from the cargo of the plane as well as his instincts.

Cast Away Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The decision to get a dog is one that should not be taken lightly. Owning a dog means taking on a number of responsibilities; think of it as having your own child. One of the initial duties that you have as a new furparent is selecting the right name for your pooch. Pop culture references are always a common theme for dog names, specifically, characters from films. If the movie Cast Away is a favorite, then you might want to draw inspiration from it.

An easy way to choose a Cast Away­-inspired name for your furry friend is to choose from any of the characters from the film. Chuck is a nice name for a male pooch inspired by the film’s main protagonist. If you have a dog that you consider your ultimate companion, you might want to name them Wilson, after the volleyball that served as Chuck Noland’s only friend while he was stranded on the island. You may also want to take some of the different elements of the film and use it to come up with a dog name. Some examples include the actors or actresses involved, the crew working behind the scenes or even the places where the film was set.
