Introduction

When it comes down to it, dogs are about as ridiculous as memes. They’re often nonsensical and absolutely hilarious because of it. In fact, many dogs have taken the Internet by storm, thanks to a few discerning owners catching (or often putting) their dogs in the middle of ludicrous situations. Memes like The Most Interesting Dog in the World, Human Dog, Yes, This is Dog, and I Have No Idea What I’m Doing Dog have kept patrons of the Internet in stitches for years thanks to the playful and often patient dogs we’ve come to know and love ourselves. They already make you laugh and smile, so why not pay tribute to them by giving them a name that will conjure up hilarious images for years to come?

Meme Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Just like a meme is a take-off or use of another universal image, dogs are often unique parts of a bigger whole. They are members of specific breeds but have personalities all their own. Use that personality to your advantage by taking notes of their most quirky traits and see if you can match it up with a meme you find particularly amusing that shares some commonalities.

For instance, if they never seem to take any real interest in what you’re doing, Willy or Wonka, After the Condescending Wonka meme, would certainly suit them well. If they tend to get incredibly excited at the drop of a hat, then maybe Ermahgerd or Blend would be more appropriate. For a dog that always has an expression of being a bit mortified, maybe Cupcake, after Cupcake Dog would be a good fit. If you want to address them in a funny way every time, just name your dog, Girl, so you can use the "Hey Girl" bit all you like.

There are a ton of ways you can go about it, but make sure to choose something that fits both of you. Don’t hesitate to do a bit of research, as you never know what you might have missed when it first surfaced, flourished, then got squashed by the ever-evolving state of the Internet. If nothing else, just do a search for “dog memes”. You won’t be disappointed.
