Ella Enchanted Dog Names in Pop Culture
Dogs are man's best friend for a reason. Having them around can truly brighten a day and provides so much purpose to life, even when it seems there is none. We have a couple of spotlight dogs today that really show how true this statement is. To start with, we must dive into the world of the cartoon strip For Better or For Worse (1950). There are many pets in this comic strip, but the one that we are focusing on today is the Patterson's family dog, Edgar. There is a bit of a backstory to Edgar and how he came to be with the Patterson family, so it would be best to start with his father, Farley. The Patterson's had a wonderful Old English Sheepdog by the name of Farley who was their very first dog. He was brave, very loyal, and loved his family immensely. As the runt of his litter, it was a surprise when he was picked by the Patterson girl, Elly, who felt sorry for Farley and brought him home.
This sweet dog grew up alongside the family children and eventually sired a litter with the Poirier' family's dog, Sera, who is a Labrador Retriever. Thus Edgar came to exist. Edgar was named due to the "Err..grr" sound he made as a puppy and eventually came to have an important place in the family due to a tragedy that took his father from him. At one point in the comic, a girl by the name of April fell into the river near the Patterson home and almost drowned. If it wasn't for Edgar's barking to alert Farley, and Farley sacrificing his life to save her, April may not have made it. Farley died in that heroic rescue, and his son, Edgar, became the head of the house dog. This really shows just how much dogs are there for us when we need them the most.
The second example of this is the dog from the traditional Disney movie Cinderella. Cinderella has a sweet and faithful Basset Hound by the name of Bruno. As a little girl, Cinderella received Bruno from her father. After her father passed away, Bruno was faithfully by Cinderella's side as she dealt with her evil step-mother and step-sisters. He is extremely loyal and kind, however, he has very little tolerance for the evil cat, Lucifer, and it is constantly chasing him around. It is wonderful to know that Cinderella had an ever faithful friend by her side to lend support through her trials, and chase away an evil cat whenever the need arose.
Ella Enchanted Inspired Dog Name Considerations
You don't have to have an obedience curse cast on you in order to want one of these awesome names for your own pup. Thanks to the fact that Ella Enchanted is both a book and a film, we are provided with a lot of great options to choose from. A few of the titles on this list are even names that mean "enchanting" or "obedient" so if you are looking for something that reflects your dog's personality well, titles such as "Obee" (obedient), "Ramana" (enchanting), or "Enchanta" may be something to consider.
No one breed will fit this category better than another. Whether you have a large dog or a small dog, long haired or short, kind or feisty, the Ella Enchanted universe provides plenty of options for everyone. For instance, if you have a small Terrier, the moniker "Ella" or "Elf" might be a great fit due to the fact that this breed is loyal, determined, and spirited; just like Ella herself! For larger dogs, names such as "Ogre", "Giant", "Charmont", and "Queen" could be excellent. These names, while simple, are perfect for breeds such as Mastiffs, Great Danes, and Bernese Mountain dogs (to name a few) as they are fun, large, and attention grabbers.
