Introduction

Vampires, werewolves, and Frankenstein's monster - these are the things that nightmares are made of, right? In the 2012 animated film Hotel Transylvania, monsters seek to take refuge from humans at a hotel managed by Dracula and his daughter Mavis, who also happens to be a vampire. However, monsters and humans soon become inextricably intertwined when Mavis and Jonathan, a human who somehow is able to check into the haven for monsters, fall in love. Of course, although it seems that Johnny and Mavis are too incompatible for a real relationship, eventually, the pair realizes that they do love each other.

Hotel Transylvania Dog Name Considerations

What type of dog is best suited for a Hotel Transylvania-inspired name? Certainly, the only pets featured in the movie have to do with the supernatural world. However, in the third rendition of Hotel Transylvania, Dennis (the human son of Jonathan and Mavis) asks for a puppy. He is soon rewarded with a pup of which the breed viewers cannot be certain. We do know that Tinkles is a large "blue" dog (he is actually described as "gigantic; however, no dog breed is ever specified for Tinkles). Tinkles comes to Dennis by way of his supernatural grandfather, Dracula, even though Dennis' parents had forbidden him to do so. 

Because Tinkles is only described as a gigantic blue dog, one can only guess at his parentage. However, one type of giant breed dog that might have fur that resembles a bluish color is the Irish Wolfhound. The Irish Wolfhound is typically gray, but, when bred with dogs with a "blue" gene, it is possible the offspring could have blue fur. Another gigantic breed that might have a bluish tinge of color in their fur is the Great Dane. Again, it is likely that Tinkles is a mix of one of these two breeds with a pup with blue fur (perhaps the Blue Heeler or the Australian Shepherd).
