So, you have a new pooch in your home. While you probably have all of the necessary essentials that dogs require, you may be struggling with one of the most important details. Choosing a name can be a tough task. You want a name that fits with your dog's personality that you can also enjoy.
When trying to decide on a name for a dog, many pet owners like to try a couple different names on for size before deciding what sticks. This method may actually allow your pooch to select their own name. If you aren't careful, they might start responding to one of the names you try on them, and then they have decided on a name for you.
Many people enjoy the sound of names that end in a long "E" sound, and we have compiled a list of some of the best dog names that end in that vowel sound.
Dog Names Ending in Long "E" Sound in Pop Culture
The movie Marley and Me brought the world to tears in 2008. Marley, whose owners are played by Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston, is an adopted yellow Labrador Retriever. Marley is named after the reggae singer Bob Marley. In the movie, Marley is a wild spirited dog that doesn't take well to training, and his owner decides to start writing about the misadventures of the adorable pup. Viewers get to see Marley through many stages of life, but the movie takes a turn toward sadness when an elderly Marley suffers from an attack of gastric dilatation volvulus, which almost kills him. He recovers, but a second attack leaves him too ill to be saved. Marley is then euthanized, and the family buries him under a tree in their front yard. Since the movie premiered on Christmas Day of 2008, viewers were surprised at the ending of the movie, and the movie has since become famous for the sad ending.
There were 22 different yellow Labradors in the movie playing Marley, because the aging of the dog progresses from puppy to elderly dog in the movie.
Other famous dogs with names ending in the long "E" sound include Snoopy from Peanuts and Benji from the movie Benji. Snoopy is the beloved pooch of Charlie Brown. This Beagle was created by Charles M. Schulz in 1950 as a character in a comic strip. The comic became so popular that there were a number of different movies made about the adventures of the characters, including Lucy and Linus, whose blanket is a favorite object of Snoopy's.
Benji is the titular character of the movie Benji that was released in 1974. In the movie, Benji is a stray dog living in an abandoned house when he decides that he wants to live with a particular family in his small town. Benji is a bit of a wanderer who loves to make visits to people all over the town, but he sets his sights on the Chapman family, whose father is no fan of dogs. The father, Dr. Chapman, refuses to let the children keep the lovable dog, but Benji helps rescue the children after they are kidnapped. His help returning the children to their home earns him a spot in the Chapman family home. Dr. Chapman agrees that Benji can stay. The first film led to four more following the adventures of Benji the stray mutt.
