Introduction

Coco is an animated musical movie produced by Pixar which launched in 2017. It’s centered on the Mexican culture and ‘El Dia de los Muertos’ or the Day of the Dead. Coco tells the story of Miguel, a 12-year-old Mexican boy who lives in the town of Santa Cecilia and comes from a shoe maker family. Miguel’s heart's desire is to be a Mariachi, but his family won’t allow it, and his only supportive companion is a Xoloitzcuintli dog, Dante, who ends up being his spiritual guide. This movie can be a great source to find a name for your pup if you love Mexican culture and if you enjoyed this beautiful movie!

Coco Dog Name Considerations

Coco is centered on El Dia de los Muertos, when families set their ofrendas (Spanish for offering) to remember and commemorate their loved ones who have passed away. It is a celebration of love, family, and heritage. This beautiful story aims to remind us the importance of our families and it also shows us the beautiful Mexican culture. There are many reasons to love this movie; the characters, story, colors, music, and all the meaning behind every single detail kept people fascinated. If you are one of the people who adored the film, this will be a great theme to consider as you search for a name for your pooch.

Throughout the film we see Mexicans singing everywhere, so dogs that are very vocal like the Beagle, the Siberian Husky, the Miniature Pinscher, the Basset Hound, or the Pomeranian will suit a Coco-inspired name. Also, in this film animals are seen as spiritual guides to humans; wise dogs like the Border Collie, the Golden Retriever, or the Akita could be named Dante, after Miguel's spiritual guide, or Pepita, like Imelda's guide. Another dog that can be a good fit for a Coco-themed name is the Chihuahua, even though his origins are not very clear, this breed has always been linked to Mexico and it is seen as a Mexican dog.
