Introduction

There’s little wonder why anyone would give their dog a Muppets name. They’re as timeless and lovable as dogs themselves, have distinct personalities and looks, and their names are almost universally recognizable by generations of people now that the Muppets have seen several reboots in the last few years to accompany their decades of prominence. Whether you are a huge fan or just looking to outfit your dog with a unique name that many will know as soon as they hear it, giving your dog a Muppets name is a great way to tie together two, fun-loving, soft, adorable characters and cement them in your heart and mind as much as many of the originals already have.

Muppets Dog Name Considerations

Out of all the themes one could choose to go with, giving your dog a Muppets-inspired name should actually be easier than most. After all, there were very few that were alike and more than enough that had strong characteristics to play off of. 

There are multiple ways you can generate ideas inspired by both your dog and Muppets characters themselves. When putting together a list, make sure to think of all possible elements that could make one particularly suitable, such as the dog’s breed type, looks, and personality. 

For breed type, think of where the breed originated (which is easy if it’s already in the name), as you can use that as a great basis. For instance, if you have a Swedish Vallhund, Chef would be a great name, after the mess-slinging, gibberish-speaking Swedish Chef — especially if they tend to be messy with food. If you have a Huntaway or a New Zealand Heading Dog, Lew would be a good fit, especially if they love fish. 

Looks can be another great way to go. If you have a hairy, mustached breed such as a Sheepdog, Sprocket, after Doc’s dog from Fraggle Rock, another Henson Muppet creation, would be a perfect name, just like Foo Foo would be a great fit for a small, white, fluffy dog like Miss Piggy’s. 

Personality can be just a suitable as a starting point, as just about every single Muppet had one that was truly unique. If your dog is big and sassy, Piggy or Miss Piggy would be a great choice. If they’re small and sassy, maybe Pepe would be a better option. If they love to fly or jump around the room, Zucchini, after the Flying Zucchini Brothers, would be a fantastic name, especially if they are particularly long. If they tend to ‘meep’ more than bark, Beaker would work well too. 

Whatever you choose, don’t limit your options, as there are more than enough big personalities with great names to match with your furry character.
