Introduction

Quentin Tarantino's 7th film, Django Unchained has been described by the idiosyncratic director as a "Southern" film set a few years before the American Civil War which tells the story of a runaway slave who is taken under the wing of a bounty hunter. Django Unchained was a very popular film that was both critically and financially successful and the film has many die-hard fans who consider the movie to be one of the, if not the absolute, best examples of Quentin Tarantino's capabilities as a storyteller and artist. Both the director and the film have garnered lifelong fans and many of the film's lively characters have inspired fans to name everything from children to dogs after them.

Django Unchained Inspired Dog Names

Django Unchained has no shortage of cool characters with memorable lines of dialogue and infinitely endearing personalities. Quentin Tarantino is a master writer and director and so each of his films contain characters who are often (mis) quoted by everyone from United States senators, to comedians, to teachers. As such, a fan of Django Unchained, or any of Quentin Tarantino's films, may name their dog after one of their favorite characters as a means of paying tribute to Tarantino's astounding prowess as a writer. Were you a big fan of the German dentist turned bounty hunter who helped Django gain his freedom? Maybe you should consider naming your dog King or Schultz in his honor. Were you endeared by Leonardo DiCaprio's dastardly yet somewhat affable Calvin Candie character? Consider naming your dog after him or one of his henchmen. Maybe you own a dog that comes from a breed that's renowned for their hunting abilities, or who are known for their ability to assist police officers in their day-to-day duties? There are plenty of bounty hunters and lawmen present in Django Unchained for you to choose a name from and there's even an anecdote about Norse Mythology for dog owners to pool names from as well.
