Napoleon Dynamite Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When trying to find the perfect-fitting name for your pooch, it's important to keep a few things in your mind. First, remember that whatever you decide, you will have to repeat it countless times in a whole variety of settings and in varying tones. This fact makes a comical name choice come under some scrutiny, as something that makes you and your friends laugh doesn't always translate well into the real world. 

This comes into play with a name like "Fat Lard". While it may be funny in theory to make an ode to Napoleon's interactions with the family llama, the reality is that this name will be unfunny in more situations than it will cause a laugh.

Another point to consider is how you would like your doggo's new moniker to represent them. Some dogs have quirky or unique physical features that can be referenced to with the right name. Choosing to title your fur-baby this way is a nice way to acknowledge what makes them individuals. 

The flip side to this way of naming your dog is to focus on their specific personality by finding a name that highlights who they are. Is your pup a flirty LaFawnDuh, or is she a bit more of a stuck up Trisha? Anyone who gets your reference will understand your canine pal that much better when their name matches their profile.
