Introduction

To anyone not born in the 80s or a child in the 90s, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids probably seems like a pretty average kids movie. However, it just so happened to be the highest-grossing live action Disney film at the time ($222M). It also launched the career of Joe Johnston, who used the film as his directorial debut after being a behind-the-scenes whiz on many of George Lucas’s most famous films before going on to direct The Rocketeer, The Pagemaster and Jumanji. Best of all though, for anyone who watched as it as kid, it is likely lovingly known as a children’s classic, one replete with great names and references perfect for dog-naming.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Dog Name Considerations

When trying to come up with an appropriate Honey, I Shrunk the Kids dog name, it’s usually easiest to approach after you’ve compiled a list of your dog’s most prominent traits, especially when it comes to their quirks and personality. 

Of course, it’s hard to beat the name Quark, as the unsung hero is one of Disney’s many lovable canine stars, so let’s get that out of the way immediately. It’s a slam dunk nearly every time. After that, however, a good list of names still exists as well. If your dog is a bit of the experimental type, then the names Wayne, Szalinski and Nicky would all be suitable, as both characters were well-known for their scientific experiments and devices. If your dog is a reliable worker, then the name Antie, after the ant who saves the kids, would certainly be suitable. If your dog loves to mess with things when you’re not home, then the names Tommy and Pervis would be good choices. If your dog happens to love fishing, then Big Russ would be a great pick as well. 

There are plenty of ways to go with your naming ideas, so don’t be afraid to blow up your creativity or sit down and watch the movie again for further inspiration.
