Introduction

The 1985 film “Out of Africa” is an American romantic drama produced and directed by Sydney Pollack, and stars Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. It is based on the autobiography of the same name that was written by Karen Blixen under the pseudonym of Isak Dinesen in 1937 as well as another book she wrote in 1961 called “Shadows on the Grass.” The story tells of Karen’s life in Africa beginning in 1913 when she moves to Nairobi and marries her lover’s brother, Baron Bro Blixen. She divorces Baron after learning of his cheating ways and meets and falls in love with Denys Finch Hatton, who is a local game hunter. While there are no dogs to speak of in the film, there is an antelope named Lulu who lives with Karen and plenty of other animals lurking on the property.

Out of Africa Inspired Dog Name Considerations

If you are looking fur a moniker for your newest furry family member and you are on this guide, you must be searching for a name that coincides with the movie, “Out of Africa.” However, when bringing home a new fur buddy you will also need some other items such as tasty kibble and treats, some fun doggy toys to play with, a comfy doggy bed to lounge in, a leash and collar for taking walks, and a veterinary professional to keep your canine kid healthy. Then, you can start searching for the perfect name for your pupster. 

For instance, Denys, which is an alternative spelling for Dennis, was the mythological god of revelry and wine so it would be a great name for a fun-loving doggo. The name Robert means bright fame in German and would be cute for any pooch. Meryl, as in Meryl Streep, the actress who plays Karen means bright as the sea in Irish and would be fantastic fur a water dog. Karen, the main character and narrator, means pure in Danish and would be pawsitively perfect for a white pup. And if you have a black dog or a dog who sticks to you like glue, Shadow would be a wonderful name.
