Introduction

First introduced to us in the Despicable Me animated movie, Gru's Minions became quite popular with the American public! They have inspired their own movie, cartoon shorts, and endless memes that are shared across the Internet on a daily basis. For the most part, the Minions do not speak clearly, and that is part of their charm. Like dogs, their facial expressions and body language often deliver the punchline of a joke. Certainly, the Minions are intended to do the will of their evil masters; however, therein the little yellow single-celled organisms lies a heart of gold. Kevin, Stuart, and Bob are the most well-known Minions.

Minions Inspired Dog Name Considerations

What type of dog is suited for a Minions-inspired name? Any breed, size, or gender of dog can be named something inspired by the Minions. However, one should look at the personality of your pup in order to decide which Minion matches your dog's distinct characteristics. 

The Minions, according to their 2015 movie, originated as single-celled organisms that evolved with one purpose - to serve the evil geniuses of all time. Minions throughout history have worked under the likes of Count Dracula; others served Napoleon. Throughout history, Kevin has proven to always be a fearless Minion. Therefore, Kevin would be a perfect name for a pup who is very courageous. Next, Stuart enjoys music. He is also playful and funny. The name Stuart might fit a rambunctious pup who is also very smart. Another rather popular Minion is Bob. Bob is one of the younger Minions, and, while he is known for being somewhat inexperienced as a villain's helper, he is always enthusiastic about jumping into action. Minion Dave is generally accident-prone. Often, young puppies are quite clumsy. A pup with this quality might fit the name Dave. A pup that seems to be timid or easily scared might be named after Jerry, a rather innocent but often cowardly Minion.
