Grimm Dog Names in Pop Culture
The best thing about Grimm is its characters, its creatures and its story lines. Yes, basically everything! There are so many lovable heroic characters, creatures and villains that we can relate to and feel inspired by when choosing a name for our new addition.
The name in the spotlight for this guide is Hank, after character Hank Griffin. Hank is the best friend of Grimm, Nick Burkhardt. He learns that Nick is a Grimm early on in the show, not long after Nick initially finds out that being a Grimm is his destiny and part of his family's heritage. Hank and Nick work together and solve Wesen crimes that coincide with their human work, as they are also partners working for law enforcement as homicide detectives. Hank is loyal and brave, definitely a heroic character. He plays an influential role in a secret Wesen world that is submerged in our regular human world.
In popular culture, Hank is a favored dog name. Hank T. Dog is a Major League Baseball mascot for the Milwaukee Brewers. He is an unofficial mascot and was actually rescued by the team when he wandered in to their training facility in the spring of 2014. It’s believed that he is a mixed breed of dog, but part Bichon Frise.
Hank is also popular in the world of celebrities too. This is the name of Reese Witherspoon’s brown Labrador pooch. Hank shares the home with Reese, her husband, and three children. As well, he enjoys the company of two more canine buddies: Nash, a German Shepherd and LouAnn, the Bull Terrier.
Bud, as in Bud Wurstner of Grimm, is another dog name in popular culture. A Bull Terrier named Bud was the first dog
who crossed the United States by car, in 1903, with Horatio Nelson Jackson. They traveled from Idaho to New York for a
$50 bet. As the roads were not like they
are today and there were less of them, they regularly got lost and
the car broke down several times. They
would only win the bet if they completed the journey within 90 days, and
sources suggest that they actually completed it in 63 days, 12 hours and 30
minutes. Bud became a major attraction in light of this achievement and his goggles are now said to be in
the National Museum of American History.
Grimm Dog Name Considerations
There are lots of considerations to make when choosing a name for your pooch, and this includes names inspired by a TV series like Grimm. We can choose names based on things like temperament, so if your pooch is a scared little mouse, then a name like Bud is suitable. For the strong and powerful pooch, you might choose Nick, Eve, Meisner or Diana. For the intelligent pooch, a name like Monroe or Rosalee would be appropriate.
You can also be inspired by color. You could choose a name like Black Claw or Schade for the pooch with a black coat. Juliette is a red-head in the show, but Adalind is a blonde so they are two options based on color. Wu on the other hand, has dark hair.
Check out the list below for more Grimm name inspiration. There are many considerations to make, so jot them down and choose carefully. If you have your pooch already, why not shout out the name to your new companion and see if they respond to any of your chosen names? If you’re still torn, ask your family and friends, or research further. You could even mix-up the names and see if you can come up with your own twist on a moniker, like Ada-lee (Adalind and Rosalee), for example.
