Introduction

The first Land Before Time movie, directed by Don Bluth, was released in 1988 and by 2016 it was followed by thirteen more movies, all direct-to-video. The original movie features a young Apatosaurus named Littlefoot as he is traveling to the Great Valley with his mother. When his mother dies protecting Littlefoot from a Tyrannosaurus Rex, which they call a Sharptooth, Littlefoot is left to find his way to the Great Valley on his own. Along the way, he encounters several other young dinosaurs who have been orphaned or who have been separated from their families, and they all travel to the Great Valley together. The rest of the movies, as well as the television series, follows the prehistoric pals after they reach the Great Valley and are reunited with the adult dinosaurs.

The Land Before Time Dog Name Considerations

There are several ways in which people can choose a name for their new canine companion. While some individuals select a name that honors a specific individual that they admire, either someone that they know personally or a well-known expert or celebrity, others may choose a name that is related to an area of interest. A painter might name their dog Epoxy or Turpentine, and a chemist could select a name like Burette or Hadron. Books, movies, and television shows can also provide a rich source of inspiration. 

The fourteen Land Before Time franchise spanned twenty-eight years and provides a source of inspiration of many different names. Some of the names lend themselves to dogs with specific physical attributes; for instance, a particularly large dog may suit Doc or Sue, while dogs with a smaller stature may fit tags associated with the Tinysauruses, like Big Daddy, Chatter, or Skitter. If the canine that you are naming is talkative, names like Petrie, Duckie, or Tippy may be suitable, and protective dogs may be better served with a name like Topsy, like Cera's protective father, or Mrs. Mama, a dinosaur who is quite protective of the eggs in her nest.
