Introduction

Spirited Away, a story about a young, curious girl who unexpectedly visits the spirit world, is by far Hayao Miyazaki's most iconic film of all time. It is incredible to think that this 2001 film is so old. It has not only withstood the test of time, but become an absolute must-watch classic. It's no wonder you're looking to name your dog after this Studio Ghibli film. The good news is that you're right where you need to be to find the right name. Here are 60 name ideas that are super dog friendly. So pull out your pen and paper to take notes!

Spirited Away Dog Name Considerations

Spirited Away is all about friendship, hard work, and deception: the idea that not everything is as it seems. An abandoned ghost town becomes a hopping city for the spirits at night. A harmless bath house is full of unexpected drama, and a mysterious stranger winds up being quite the nutcase (No-Face). But the thing is, it all comes together to form this classic, iconic film. It's memorable not just because it's visually stunning, like all Studio Ghibli films, but because every character is uniquely interesting.

So when looking through names, it would be in your interest to pay extra close attention to the creature that the name belong to. Does the creature resemble your dog in some way? If your dog were to be in the film, would it be Radish Spirit, or a Sootball? If you're not sure, look to your dog again. What is the size, age, breed, color, and personality of the dog? More so, what makes your dog unique? What does this dog do that you've never seen another dog do? This becomes extra clear when you have 2+ dogs: you see striking differences in temperament and behavior side by side. If this isn't your case, consider your previous dogs, and how they were different.
