Maleficent Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Maleficent is a great family movie that can inspire a host of ideas for names for your new dog. The only thing we need to point out is that the name you choose must be simple for your dog to understand. Shorter names are often better, allowing your dog to understand you. Longer names can be good, but check that they roll off the tongue easily and that they are fluid in form. If your tongue trips over the name, your dog will give up waiting for you to get it out and will be off chasing after the neighbour's cats or kids. A movie can offer a host of names taken from the movie location, actors and actresses in the film, villains and heroes, and amazing creatures such as dragons. Just the emotions the movie evokes can be the inspiration for a name. We have done the homework for you, and have sifted through Maleficent files to choose only the best names to give you a solid choice for female and male dogs. Are the villainous characters your favorite part of the film? If so, consider the names Beast or Stefan. How about the color of your dog? If he is black, you can name him after the shapeshifting raven, Diaval. A busy dog will suit the moniker, Flittle and Phillip is the perfect title if your dog is a little prince.
