Introduction

It may not have been the absolute most popular show during Nickelodeon’s golden age (the 90s) but Hey Arnold! is still a favorite of many and for good reason. While it centered around the golden-haired cap-wearing kid we’ve all come to know and love, it also showcased the inner city life of a wide variety of kids from the wealthy to those without any semblance of privilege. Through 100 television episodes and two movies, it provided entertaining and ethical programming complete with a cast of unique characters that not only made the show rich and fun, but for our purposes, also doubles as a list of fantastic dog names.

Hey Arnold! Dog Name Considerations

Given the sprawling cast of the series and its follow-up films, it won’t likely be an easy task to find an appropriate Hey Arnold! name for your dog unless you plan to simply name them after your favorite character. If you want a bit more depth and meaning to the name, however, consider compiling a list of their most defining traits and using it as a resource to compare them to characters from the show. 

For instance, if your dog tends to be a bit polarizing, loving you one minute then being stubborn the next, the names Helga or Pataki would both be suitable. If they are exceptionally smart and patient, then the names Phoebe and Heyerdahl are good options. If they tend to be a bit off the wall or unpredictable, then the names Gertrude or Pookie would be perfect fits. For a dog that is both lanky and never seems to smell clean, the name Stinky would be ideal. 

Of course, there are plenty of different directions you can take the naming process from naming them after a favorite episode to giving them the name of someone from the series who has a similar element to their aesthetic, so keep your options open and keep trying until something sticks out as far as Arnold’s head and hair.
