Introduction

The story of Sleeping Beauty goes by a variety of different names that you may or may not recognize; such as Little Briar Rose or The Sleeping Beauty in the Woods. No matter what title this tale goes by, the story of a princess put to sleep at the prick of a spindle is well known and loved by many. It was originally written by the Brothers Grimm and was then adapted into film and television shows; a couple of which were created by Disney. The first popular film from the Magic Kingdom was the classic Sleeping Beauty in 1959, followed by Maleficent in 2014 which provided a completely new viewpoint on the tale. If you were a fan of Aurora and her adventure, then this is the perfect place to find a name for your dog.

Sleeping Beauty Inspired Name Considerations

When the princess, Briar Rose (also known as Aurora) comes to mind, you may think of a delicate and dainty woman with beautiful golden hair. Or, you may picture the princess from Maleficent with darker hair and a loyal personality. No matter what image is conjured up, there is no doubt that Sleeping Beauty is all about the lovely things in life; music, love, and of course sleep. If you have a dog that you are wanting to name after perhaps one of your favorite movies, then you've come to the right place! The Toy Poodle, Cairn Terrier, Bichon Frise, and the Papillon are just a few of the small breeds that would fit well into this category. Their beautiful fur and loving personalities (along with their dainty builds) are perfect for matching names such as "Rose", "Beauty", "and "Prince". If you have a larger dog, never fear! They can fit into this category as well with names such as "Dragon", "Thorn", and "Maleficent". These names hold a stronger tone and can truly match dogs of any personality or size. Because all of the monikers on this list are inspired by Sleeping Beauty you will also find some with meanings that literally are "handsome" or "beautiful" If you want a name that reflects the personality or outward appearance of your beloved dog, then one of these may be excellent to consider.
