Introduction

Hot in Cleveland is a sit-com aired by CBS Studios and taped in front of a live studio audience. It follows 40-something Los Angeles film industry veterans Joy Scroggs, Melanie Moretti, and Victoria Chase who get sidetracked when their airplane, originally bound for Paris, France, makes an emergency landing in Cleveland, OH. When Melanie falls in love with the welcoming environment in Cleveland, where the three women are still considered hot, she impulsively leases a house, and the three of them decide to stay, not realizing until after the paperwork is signed that it also comes with an elderly, sassy caretaker by the name of Elka Ostrovsky. The series ran for six seasons, from 2010 until 2015.

Hot in Cleveland Inspired Dog Name Considerations

There are many different ways to chose an appropriate name for a new canine companion. Many individuals choose a tag that reminds them of someone that is important to them, either someone that they know personally, or a celebrity or industry leader that they admire. Others start their list of names by selecting a name that directly describes the dog's appearance or personality, picking a name like Goldie, Jumper, or Shaggy, or by choosing a name that relates to your dog's heritage or history. Another good source of inspiration is to choose a name that comes from a favorite book, movie, or television show. 

Hot in Cleveland ran for six seasons between 2010 to 2015 and won several awards, including an Emmy, a People's Choice Award, and a Screen Actor's Guild award. With its constantly rotating cast of unique characters, there are plenty of names available as inspiration for a moniker. You could choose a name like Elka for a sassy senior, Victoria, Alex, or Emmy for that dog that always wants to be in the spotlight, or for the sweet, somewhat naive pooch, Melanie or Mamie-Sue. This list also works well for multiple dogs, giving siblings monikers like Emmy, Oscar, and Tony, like Victoria's kids, or William and Jenna, like Melanie's children.
