Getting a new puppy or dog is a very exciting time! During this time, you will be getting all kinds of items for your dog like toys, food, bowls, treats, and many other things. One thing that your dog really needs is a name!
Selecting the perfect name for a pooch can be very difficult. Not only do you want to pick a great name but you also want it to be something that you won't mind calling your dog for the rest of their life. That means that you should take some time to really think about the name you are looking into.
If you follow models, there are tons of great model-inspired names to choose from!
Model Inspired Dog Names in Pop Culture
Our featured famous dog named after a model is actually a model herself. Zoe is a rescue dog who was selected as the 2007 Haute Dog Super Model for Cain & Able Collection LLC. As the model for Cain & Able, Zoe was featured in a number of different marketing campaigns for the company, which makes spa products for dogs. As the model, Zoe and her owner, Jennifer Nelson received a full year's supply of bath products from the company. Zoe shares a name with a couple of different famous models including Zoe Tamerlis Lund and Zoe Kravitz.
Brinkley is our second famous dog with a model inspired name. Brinkley was the dog in the movie You've Got Mail. Brinkley is a Golden Retriever belonging to Joe Fox, a bookstore chain owner. Throughout the movie, we see Brinkley as he chats with a woman named Kathleen on the Internet, walks through the park, visits the fair, and just spending time with his owner. In fact, the first character to meet Kathleen in the movie was actually Brinkley, not Joe! Brinkley shares a name with famous model Christy Brinkley.
Our final famous pup with a model inspired name is actually a wolf named Kate from the movie Alpha and Omega. This animated film is centered around Kate, who is training to be an alpha wolf. Throughout the movie, Kate develops feelings for an omega wolf named Humphrey. Kate and Humphrey have been friends since childhood, but it is against the rules for an alpha wolf to marry an omega wolf, because alpha and omega wolves are in a war over territory. Much like Romeo and Juliet, the two wolves try to find a way to be together despite all the odds working against them. Kate shares a name with famous model Kate Moss, who was extremely popular in the 1990s.
Model Inspired Dog Name Considerations
When you are trying to come up with a name for your new pooch, there are a lot of different things to consider. For example, you need to choose a name that you love. You will have to say this name a million times, so make sure it is something that you don't mind repeating over and over. You should always say a name out loud a few times before deciding on it.
Consider any themes that you want to follow. Maybe you love names that start with a K, or perhaps you want to choose names that are all inspired by models. Whatever your theme is, there are going to be a lot of different name options, so it might be hard to narrow it down.
You might also want to consider your new pet's personality and appearance. While these aren't the most important aspect of your pet's name, they can help you narrow down your options to find the perfect name for your favorite new pooch. Perhaps your pooch looks or acts a little like one of the model names on our list and you want to name them after this famous model. Once you have decided, let us know your choice in the comments!
