Introduction

Walt Disney Pictures is known for producing some of the most memorable characters from their films. Whether it involves princesses, heroes or animals, Disney characters always leave a mark and win the hearts of viewers. One of the more recent enthralling films produced by Disney is the 2012 film Frankenweenie. This stop-motion-animated comedy-horror film is a remake of the 1984 film of the same name, both of which are directed by prominent director Tim Burton. Frankenweenie, which is loosely based from the famous Mary Shelley book entitled Frankenstein, tells the story of Victor Frankenstein and his attempt to bring his dog, Sparky, back to life.

Frankenweenie Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When getting a dog, the first thing that owners have to think about is what to name their new pet. Even though it seems like a very simple task, most dog owners put a lot of thought into choosing a name. This is an important step of owning a canine because the name you choose will be the one that they will carry for their entire lives. Walt Disney films and characters have long been a source of inspiration for pet names, including dogs. Frankenweenie is no exception to this, particularly since one of the main protagonists of the film, Sparky, is also a dog.

If you love the movie and would like to choose a Frankenweenie-inspired name for your pooch, you should take some factors into consideration. Oftentimes, fans of the film simply pick out the name of their favorite character. Some of the fan favorites are Victor, Sparky and Elsa, named after some of the film’s primary characters. You can also think about the similarities of your dog and the Frankenweenie characters. For instance, if you have a male Bull Terrier or a female Poodle, you can name them “Sparky” or “Persephone” respectively, which are the two canine characters in the film.
