Introduction

When you get a new dog, there are many choices from which to choose a name from, such as country names, song titles and especially movies. With so many lists of dogs names out there, it is hard to choose, and confusion can reign. Where do you get the one that is just right for your dog? After all, your dog is different from all other dogs, right? They are very special. Therefore, you want a name that is unique to them. Well, you can rest assured, as we have compiled a list of dog names taken from the inspirational movie Marley and Me. If you have watched this movie, you will know what we mean when we say it runs the full gamut of human emotions as Marley's owners adapt to dealing with a new pet. From joy to anger, to despair - the movie has it all. 

This emotional movie has inspired some very special names that we have compiled. When you get a dog, they take a while to get to know. At first, it is just their cute puppy antics that win you over, but then - as you get to know them - you find that they have certain characteristics that make them unique. One dog may be so active they can barely keep up with their own feet! Another dog may attack shoes, socks, your feet or slobber up and down your leg. Some are loving and affectionate, others are captivated by your cat and insist on stalking them constantly until your cat climbs up out of the dog's reach to get some peace. Use these characteristics to choose the name of your dog, and you will find one that seems to be made especially for your furry friend.

Marley and Me Inspired Dog Name Considerations

There are a few rules to consider when naming a dog. It makes sense that the name is easy to say or to call out when you want your dog to obey your order. If you are stuttering over the name, your dog will just get confused. Short one or two syllable names are often best as they are crisp and sharp sounds that your dog can understand. Longer names often get shortened, they can be harder to make clear when used in conjunction with a command. Be sure to try longer names out before making a decision. Speak them out loud along with the commands to see if they sound good. Consider what a longer name will be shortened to and then decide if you can live with that. 

Many owners use human names for their pets, which is fine as long as no one in the household has the same name, and your friend's names are different. If you have one or more Charley in the house, it just gets confusing for your dog. They don't have a clue which Charley you are talking to and may ignore you altogether. You can choose a name from a foreign country, a different language, or from a list like this one which was inspired by the movie Marley and Me. By the way, Marley is a great name for a dog. It is short, sharp and yet quite different which means that your dog's name will be unique. Don’t rush into it because you will have to live with it for many happy years. Try the name out, speak it aloud, pretend you are calling your dog in a busy park. If you feel too embarrassed to say the name out loud then it's time to rethink it. Enjoy the naming process; this list will make it an easy decision and provides a good range of quality names that any dog would be proud to wear.
