Introduction

If it wasn’t enough that King of the Hill was one of the most popular animated shows on American television during its time, it boasted considerable comedy legends beyond the genius of Mike Judge, the show’s creator. By small example, it featured Pamela Adlon, Brittany Murphy, David Herman, Phil LaMarr and Fred Willard, all who went on to do great things in comedy if they hadn’t already. It also attracted the likes of Tom Petty, Chuck Mangione, and Trace Adkins, each of whom made semi-regular appearances on the show. So what’s this all to say? Well, it says that if you love the show or have a good sense of humor, there’s little wonder why you’d pick King of the Hill for a place to source your dog name from.

King of the Hill Dog Name Considerations

So how do you even start picking a name given the vast expanse of characters to choose from? We recommend starting by picking out your dog’s most notable traits, anything from their appearance to their quirks and personality, then trying to match it up with a favorite or similar character. 

But first, we should get something out of the way: Bobby is easily one of the best names simply because any fan of the show will find a bit more enjoyment in scolding their dog when they get to say “Dang it, Bobby!” Moving on. 

But after Bobby, there are plenty of good options based on similarities between your dog and the show’s characters. For instance, if you have a dog that never truly vocalizes their barks but instead tends to growl and grumble a lot, Boomhauer would be the perfect name. If they’re short in stature and tend to be a bit cranky, then Cotton would be apt, especially if they have a bit of a waddle to their step. If they’re a little dopey or constantly somehow end up with foods or liquids on themselves, then Fontaine, Delatour, and Dauterive are all good options. 

If you need some additional inspiration, sit down with your dog and watch a few episodes and see if anything stands out about them or characters in the show that may remind you of them.
