Despicable Me Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When Despicable Me comes to mind, you mainly think of the Gru, the supervillain, or his adopted daughters, Margo, Edith, and Agnes. These characters all have such different personalities, ranging from a villain to a girl obsessed with unicorns. Gru has a mean supervillain personality that grows as the movie progresses. Margo, the oldest of the three adopted daughters, is known for her wittiness. Edith, the middle sister, is known for her rebellious attitude. Agnes, the youngest sister, is remembered for her apparent obsession with all things unicorn.

If your dog is courageous and strong, a moniker from the franchise would be just the fit. A canine with a heart of gold will suit the name as well. Our considerations for the type of breed that would wear a Despicable Me inspired name well range from the Great Dane to the American Pit Bull Terrier. Great Danes are known for their overwhelmingly large size, but even with that height, they are also one of the breeds known as gentle giants. Other breeds that have a similar sort of personality to the Great Dane and the American Pit Bull Terrier are the Bernese Mountain Dog, Bullmastiff, Newfoundland, Greyhound, English Mastiff, Glen of Imaal Terrier, Saint Bernard, Leonberger, Great Pyrenees, and the Irish Wolfhound. These breeds all look tough on the outside but are surprisingly gentle. Take these wonderful traits and match them with your favorite Despicable Me character.
