Introduction

While Shameless has certainly received its share of criticism, there’s little denying its acclaim. Winner of several top-tier awards, the show remains Showtime’s longest-running original scripted series in the network’s history, which says a lot about its success. Despite the dark topics it covers, the show is an imaginative yet realistic look at what it means to be a family, suffering through various stages of dysfunction. And at its core, it provides quality entertainment with characters that for many, often hit a bit close to home, making it just as insightful as it is often lewd and outrageous. And the best part is, its massive cast of characters make for the perfect dog-naming fodder.

Shameless Dog Name Considerations

When attempting to come up with a good Shameless inspired dog name, it’s usually easiest to start by making a list of your dog’s most defining traits. Consider their looks, personality and individual quirks, as each one can provide a potential link to a character from the show. 

For instance, if they happen to be large, tough, or intimidating-looking but are truly soft-hearted, then the names Kev and Ball would certainly fit the bill. If your dog’s intelligence often gets them into trouble, then the name Lip would be perfect. If they are always trying to manage other dogs and people around them, then maybe Fiona would be a good choice. If they are particularly musical, then maybe Pfender would be a decent choice. If you’re just a fan of the show and want to keep it simple, then the overarching family name Gallagher would be an easy pick. 

There are plenty of directions you can take the naming process and there are just as many characters to base them on. Try to trim the list down to some of your favorite characters and those with the strongest related traits, then see what seems to fit best. If you need any further inspiration, there are plenty of seasons to watch for a refresher.
