Introduction

Mamma Mia! is a jukebox musical that first opened as a stage play at the Prince Edward Theater in England’s West End in 1999. Inspired by the music of the Swedish pop group ABBA, the entertaining and uplifting script was very popular with audiences and in 2008 it was turned into a musical movie starring Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried. The movie made $615.7 million, and held the status of both the highest grossing live-action musical of all-time and the highest grossing movie directed by a woman until 2017, when it was surpassed by Beauty and the Beast and Wonder Woman, respectively. With its entertaining cast of characters and the upbeat and lively soundtrack, Mamma Mia provides a great source of inspiration when choosing a name for your new pup.

Mamma Mia! Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a name for your new canine companion can seem like a daunting task, but there are several ways to find inspiration and pinpoint the best name for your pooch. When choosing a name from a favorite book, play, or movie, such as Mamma Mia!, there are several ways to narrow down the list. You can choose a name based on places named in the movie, such as the fictional island of Kalokairi, or you can pull inspiration from one of the many songs throughout the show. Names like Honey, Chance, Trouper, or Chiquitita are excellent names that reference songs in the movie that were originally performed by the four-person group from Sweden. 

If your dog prefers to do the singing rather than listen to it, perhaps one of the names of the original band will work for them giving them names like Agnetha, Anni-Frid, Benny, or Bjorn. If you have multiple dogs that you are naming at the same time there are several paired names like Rosie and Bill, Tanya and Pepper, or Harry and Petros, as well as fun names that can be used in triplet as well. You could even create your own canine version of Donna and the Dynamos by naming your dogs Donna, Rosie, and Tanya!
