Just think back. When you were a little kid, you loved fairytales. You read them every night before bed; your grandma told you the most amazing fairytale stories with noble princes and brave princesses who fought evil queens and other shady characters to make the good prevail. Their true love inspired you to look for your own prince or princess charming and kind of ruined your life because your standards were too high. Well, now you have the most charming of the royalty in your household – your beautiful, loving, devoted dog. And they only deserve the best of the best, including a name worthy of their royal status.
Prince Charming Inspired Dog Names in Pop Culture
There is no better and inspiring story than a rags to riches one. We all strive to accomplish something in our lives and become royalty in our own accord, and of course, most importantly, to find our true love, our prince or princess charming while being the same to them. One of the most heartwarming stories is one of Tramp, an adorable dog from Lady and the Tramp. He is a scruffy doggo who fell in love with the beautiful Lady. He has a brown and tan coat, and he is quite laid-back with childlike behavior. He does not have a home or a family, which means that he has to take care of himself and work every day to find food and shelter. Tramp is quite smart, which allowed him to steer clear from the junkyard dogs, and to charm the restaurant owner to feed him.
A stray mutt can be seen living his carefree life and being a little rapscallion before he met Lady. He rescues her from a pack of alley dogs and takes off her muzzle. The two of them paint the town red, they walk around, laugh, and stop for dinner at an Italian restaurant. After the cutest kiss in the history of movie making, Lady and Tramp kiss, and he, the gentleman he is, takes her home. However, Lady gets captured by the dog catchers and taken to the pound, where she overhears other dogs talking about Tramp’s ex-girlfriends. This enrages her, and she never wants to see him again!
However, one night, a rat comes into the baby’s room, and Lady is helpless! Tramp hears her barks and rushes to save her and the baby. He fights the rat and wins, but is captured by the dog catchers, and taken to the pound, just like Lady was. However, Jock and Trusty fight to release him after they heard about Tramp’s heroic rat battle.
Soon after, on Christmas, Tramp can be seen safe and warm at home, in the house of Jim Dear and Darling. He and Lady are in love and even became parents of four lovely puppies! Three girls, Annette, Collette, and Danielle, and one son, who looks exactly like Tramp named – Scamp!
Tramp’s story is definitely one for the fairy tales. A poor doggo who had to fight for survival in the streets became royalty after he fell in love with Lady, a well-off dog with a warm home and a loving family. His story is inspiring because it wasn’t his marriage that made him a prince, it was his bravery, devotion, and selflessness that showed everyone that he is more than just a troublemaker and that he is actually a noble dog, worthy of the best things in life.
