Introduction

For those who grew up in the 90s, love classic cartoons and comics, or just have a soft spot for larger than life personalities, giving your dog a Garfield and Friends name is a great way to pay tribute to both the sass and loyalty of the human-animal relationships. Yes, we understand Garfield is a cat, but that doesn’t mean that his dynamic roster of companions won’t provide a hefty list of over-the-top characters with equally great names that will be the perfect dog-naming fodder. After all, who or what would Garfield be without the constant annoyance (companionship) of Odie?

Garfield and Friends Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The toughest part about the dog-naming process is coming up with something that suits them both in sound and in personality. Our best suggestion is to make a list of your dog’s most prominent traits from their color and look to their personality, as this will be the easiest point of reference once you start looking through the list of characters. 

For instance, if your dog loves lasagna, doesn’t listen or just sports a lot of attitude, then Garfield would be a great name. If they’re super easy-going and bent on taking over the world with their cuteness, then maybe Nermal would be a good fit. If you have a dog that seems a little dopey but is actually pretty smart, Odie would be an ideal choice. For those who are a bit greedy and piggish, the names Mort, Gort and Wart would be solid selections, as would Bo for a particularly laid back dog. 

There’s a wide range of personalities from the show, so don’t hesitate to scroll down the entirety of our list to get an idea of who’s who. There are names to cover many different personality types of both people and dogs, but if you need a refresher, try finding a way to tune back in for a throwback refresher course.
