Introduction

In 2006, the American Museum of Natural History came to life in one of the decades favorite Ben Stiller movies, Night at the Museum.  The film features a down on his luck guy, Larry Dale, portrayed by Ben Stiller,  who takes on the night security guard position at the Museum of Natural History.  After everyone has gone home for the evening, and it's just Larry, the exhibits animate themselves.  The movie also features Robin Williams as Theodore Roosevelt and Owen Wilson as Jedediah.  Many people, especially those who visit and love the American Museum of Natural History, are entertained and even touched by the film.  For these people, Night at the Museum is an excellent source of historical and entertaining names dog owners can draw from to name their dogs.

Night at the Museum Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Night at the Museum is a 2006 Ben Stiller family comedy about a midnight security guard at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.  In the film, the museum's exhibits come to life during after hours, thanks to an ancient Egyptian relic.  The Night at the Museum theme is a fun one to use for naming a newly adopted puppy or dog, but owners should take some things into consideration when choosing a name.  Naming options include the proper names or many characters, such as Theodore, Jedediah, and Octavius.  Many of the name options are potentially long and dog owners may wish to shorten or chose a name with fewer syllables.  This helps dogs to learn and respond well to their names.  Additionally, when owners choose long names, they may shorten or use other variations of their dog's name.  Using multiple names can be confusing for a dog; therefore, it is best to choose an easy-to-use name you can use all the time.

Breed, size, and color play little role in choosing a name within the Night at the Museum theme.  Dogs from any background can enjoy any name.  This theme also does not lock dog owners into the movie canon.  Owners can choose any name that falls within the American Museum of Natural History genre.
