Introduction

When you were a kid, you probably loved fairytales. But did you know that most of Disney’s fairytale stories originate from two German brothers who collected and wrote down these folk tales from old people and various storytellers and compiled them into several tomes? Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm were philologists, lexicographers, authors, and cultural researchers who published their work in the 19th century but kept collecting the folktales all their lives. These stories have been translated to more than 100 languages, numerous movies and cartoons were made about them, and they have become an integral part of our pop culture.

The Brothers Grimm Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Bedtime stories, Disney movies, fairy tales that we read as kids – all of them stick with us forever and shape our imagination. They show us that we should always fight on the side of good, and that evil will never prevail, as long as we try hard enough. Therefore, taking one of these fairy tales as inspiration when naming your doggo is not only cute but reminds everyone of a simpler time, when nothing mattered except playtime and sunshine. So, if you are on the hunt for the perfect name, look no further than your favorite fairytale. For example, the name Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Briar Rose, or Sleeping Beauty are all amazing choices and perfect for your little princess.

If you are looking for a more mischievous name, you can try with Rumpelstiltskin. Hansel is a perfect name for a curious dog, as well as Falada, after the horse of the princess from The Goose Girl. You can always turn to the brothers who made it all possible and name your doggo Jacob or Wilhelm, after the Grimm brothers, and even include their little bro Ludwig Emil Grimm, the famous painter, and etcher, responsible for all the drawings of Wilhelm and Jacob we have today.
