Introduction

Chances are, if you’re planning to give your dog a famous thief’s name, you’re either one yourself, an appreciator of epic heists, or your dog steals things often enough for you to give it this kind of serious consideration. Whatever the case may be, giving your dog a famous thief’s name will surely help them stand out and likely help to cement an already mischievous personality. If nothing else, maybe someone will overhear you calling your canine companion and like the name so much they’ll go ahead and steal it for themselves, completing an apt cycle of thievery — you stealing the name from a thief, and someone stealing the name from you!

Famous Thief Dog Name Considerations

There is certainly a lot to consider when giving your dog a famous thief’s name, including what type of thief you want them named after or associated with, criminal or ethical (yes, they exist, see Pepino), violent or non-violent, and more. You should also consider whether or not it is your favorite thief or just a good name for your dog, who may have a penchant for making things disappear, such as food, toys, personal items, and the like. Finally, consider both the thieves’ and the dog’s personality, as that may provide some ideas as to which direction to go. 

Of course, certain situations may make for the perfect name based on anecdote alone. For instance, if your dog happens to love sticks so much they’ll pull one from the back yard bonfire and bring it to you, Prometheus, after the Titan Prometheus, who stole fire from the gods and delivered it to humans, would be a spot-on name. If they happen to like stealing or eating jewelry, maybe Payne, Golder, or Remy would be more suitable. 

Their looks might help as well. If your dog likes to steal, yet has an adorable face, maybe Babyface or Nelson would be a good way to go. If you adopted them old and they like to do so, well, then Reader or Blagger would be better, after Brian Reader and the Old Blaggers, the men in their 70s who completed an epic heist. 

Whatever direction to decide to explore, don’t be afraid to steal some names from our list or at least some ideas to get you going.
