If you love Scrubs, ER, or Grey's Anatomy, then you could name your furry buddy after your favorite make-believe physician.

Doctor Dog Name Considerations

Does your dog have a favorite veterinarian? Name your pooch after their own canine DVM or choose a respected and historic vet like James Herriot who wrote the books,  All Things Bright and Beautiful and All Creatures Great and Small. 

If you are considering doctor names, how about picking a famous television MD like Quincy, Marcus Welby, Doogie Howser, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Ben Casey, or even Becker? Most of the characters are iconic and people instantly recognize the names. 

You could veer away from television and film characters in your search for catchy monikers and instead focus on history. How about naming your furry buddy Doc Holliday? Holliday was the faithful sidekick of Wyatt Earp. He was famous for his gunslinger abilities, but he was also known as a dentist when not gambling or fighting gun battles. Other historical doctors include Hippocrates, Sigmund Freud, Jonas Salk, Louis Pasteur, and Elizabeth Blackwell. 

When considering a physician-related name for your pooch, the sky is really the limit. You can choose a name that has meaning to you or even something that you think relates to animals. Undoubtedly, picking the best doctor name for your furry friend is going to be a fun and memorable endeavor!
