Introduction

The movie Chicken Run, released in the year 2000, was the first full-length film produced by Aardman Animations, a British animation studio, and was a collaboration with the American based Dreamworks studios. It outlines the adventures of a coop of chickens intent on escaping from their prison-like environment, headed by a no-nonsense Rhode Island Red by the name of Ginger. When a circus chicken by the name of Rocky lands in the coop, she tries to get him to teach the chickens to fly out of the coop in order to escape to paradise. Chicken Run was the top-grossing stop motion animated movie in history and earned several awards, including a Satellite Award and a Golden Tomato.

Chicken Run Inspired Dog Name Considerations

There are many methods that people can use when choosing a name for a new canine companion. Some people will choose to honor someone important to them, employing the name of a cherished family member or friend, or the name of someone famous that they admire, while others may choose a name based on the meaning of the name or where the name came from. Another option is to use a name that is based on a favorite book, television show, or movie. Chicken Run is a family favorite that can provide a great deal of inspiration when you are looking for the right name for your pooch. 

While many individuals will default to choosing a name based on one of the main characters, such as Ginger or Rocky, others may choose characters with smaller roles, such as Nick, Fetcher, or Edwina, and still others may prefer to honor someone crucial to the creation of the movie, such as Karey Kirkpatrick, the scriptwriter, or Pathe, one of the companies that helped to fund the movie. Pet parents can even choose a name based on an object that is important to the plot of the film, such as Hatchet, referencing Mrs. Tweedy's ever-present hatchet, or Gnome, referencing the garden gnomes that the rats use to sneak into the farm and steal things.
