Stephen King Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Choosing the perfect name for your canine companion is no easy task. The name you select will be his or hers for 10 to 15 years or more, and it’s the name you’ll find yourself calling out the door during late night potty breaks and providing to your veterinarian when making appointments. If you’re thinking about choosing a Stephen King inspired name, remember to avoid those that could be deemed offensive. Think about your dog’s breed and characteristics. An Irish setter would make a great Kojak, for example. Cujo works well for Saint Bernards, as well as dogs with intimidating personalities. Be creative, and come up with a name that honors your dog and the horror master himself. 

You may also want to consider your favorite Stephen King novels or books and their characters. If you have a favorite, it will really narrow down your options. Be creative! While the names of characters are great ideas, think about settings, themes and even book titles. For a more subtle tribute to the author, you could even choose to name your pet after one of his children or family members. Stephen King provides plenty of opportunities for the perfect pet name.
