Little Women, written by Louisa May Alcott, was originally published as two volumes, the first in 1868 and the second just a year later. This classic novel outlines the lives of four very different sisters who are growing up in Massachusetts during the Civil War, and while it was originally developed as a story for young women and girls, it is also seen as a romance novel as well as a family drama. The enduring novel, which endorses virtue over wealth, has been adapted for the cinema several times, including two silent films, at least six separate miniseries for television, and in 1980s Japan, it was reworked into anime series twice.

Little Women Inspired Dog Name Considerations

There are many ways to find inspiration when choosing a name for a new canine companion, such as choosing a name that honors a cherished human or canine friend or family member, or picking a name that represents a celebrity or a leader in an area that interests you, such as a great scientist, athlete, or artist. Many people also find inspiration from their favorite media entertainment, such as books, movies, and television shows. 

Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott, was first published in the late 1800s and quickly became both a critical and commercial success, and it has continued to be widely read to this day. The book has not only been an enduring piece of literature as a novel, but it has also been adapted into stage plays, movies, television mini-series, and anime, and its pages are rife with inspiration. 

You can choose to name your pet after a character that they remind you of, such as Beth for a dog with a sweet, self-sacrificing nature, Jo for a more headstrong or temperamental pooch, or John for a loyal and hardworking canine. You can also consider the real person that the character was inspired by, such as Louisa herself, who Jo was modeled after, or one of her other sisters, Anna, Lizzie, or May. There are also several notable places and pastimes in this example that can be used as names, like Pickwick, Scarlet, Concord, or Snowball.
