Lady and the Tramp Dog Name Considerations

The origins of the classic are a part of Walt Disney history. In 1937, Joe Grant, one of Disney’s premier storytellers, was moved to create a story based on his own life. He watched his English Springer Spaniel Lady closely and observed how she would often get shoved aside by Joe’s new baby. He immediately started to sketch Lady and showed them to Walt Disney. As soon as Mr. Disney saw the sketches he instantly enlisted Joe to create an animated feature called 'Lady'. For a decade, Joe and others worked on the storyline but Mr. Disney did not care for any of them. He felt like none of the storylines contained enough action.

During the 1940's, Mr. Disney read Ward Green’s short story in Cosmopolitan magazine. He instantly thought of Lady. He wanted Lady to fall in love with a scamp. The creators of the storyline threw many names around such as Bozo, Homer, and Rags but they ultimately decided that Lady’s love interest would be a mutt named Tramp.

In 1949, Grant left Disney Studios but his drawings of Lady remained and were used to create the animated film. By 1953, the story had been successfully worked out. Prior to the film’s debut, Disney released a novelization of the story so that fans already knew about Lady before the film hit the theater. The biggest and most classic scene in the movie depicts Lady and the Tramp enjoying spaghetti. They each slurp one noodle piece until their lips come close to a kiss. Interestingly,  Mr. Disney initially wanted to cut the scene because he felt it was too silly. Lady’s physical appearance is that of an American Cocker Spaniel but her likeness was also similar to the early drawings that Joe Green did of his Springer Spaniel. She is a sweet, doe-eyed dog that quickly wins the viewer's heart.
