Introduction

Step Up is a 2006 dance drama film that starred Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. Directed by Anne Fletcher, the film tells the story of a disadvantaged young man named Tyler Gage (played by Tatum) who has impressive dancing skills. After breaking into the Maryland School of Arts, he serves his community hours in MSA, where he meets privileged dancer Nora Clark, who is anxious about doing things perfectly in order to prove her worth. The unlikely duo gets paired up in a dance showcase that will make a huge impact on each other’s futures. Step Up was a commercial success and led to an entire film franchise composed of four movie sequels and a television series.

Step Up Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Acquiring a new dog is cool and all but you also need to consider the duties that come with becoming a “furparent”. At the very top of your must-do list is to provide your dog with a name. Remember, the name you choose says a lot about you as much as it does your dog. Hence, this decision must be made with great thought.

One of the key considerations to make when choosing a dog name is how easy it is for your dog to learn. Unlike humans, dogs have a restricted understanding of words. Moreover, their capacity to remember names is also limited. Thus, you should choose a short and simple name to make it as easy as possible for them to remember.

Another tip when naming your dog is to steer clear of names that sound like the ones in your household. This applies to families or homes with multiple members in them. Giving your dog a name that rhymes with those in your home can cause confusion.

A good way to narrow down your options is to name your dog after famous characters, celebrities or even other canines. For instance, if you want to go for a Step Up-inspired name, you can name your dog after the well-known dogs owned by the film’s star, Channing Tatum.
