Introduction

Like many Disney movies of the 1990s, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is adapted from a classic literary work. In this case, the animated film is based on a novel by Victor Hugo. While the characters are much like those in another Hugo classic, Les Miserables, the story's plot is very different. Yes, the story is set in France, and the characters also experience the dramatic differences in social classes. In particular, Esmeralda faces a great deal of discrimination and resulting isolation. However, Esmeralda and Quasimodo become very close because, like Esmeralda, Quasimodo is also considered an outsider due to a physical deformity.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame Dog Names

To be sure, dogs who are given a name based on The Hunchback of Notre Dame most likely have been given the moniker due to the owner's personal preference for the Disney classic. However, one might consider a few facts about the film and give their pooch a name inspired by the 1996 film. 

First, the film is set in Paris, France. With this in mind, one might consider dogs that originated in this area as being suited for a name inspired by The Hunchback of Notre DameBreeds such as the Poodle (including the miniature Poodle variety), the French Bulldog, Papillon, and the Dogue de Bordeaux are all breeds that originated in France. Surprisingly enough, one might be surprised to find that the Great Pyrenees, the Bloodhound, and the Basset Hound are also French in origin. 

Often, when Americans hear the name "Notre Dame," we think of the historic college located in Indiana. Dogs popular in the state of Indiana are the Labrador Retriever and the Golden Retriever. A final name consideration might come from the magical element of the movie. Esmeralda is a gypsy, and she is arrested for allegedly performing witchcraft. Also, various names from the film are associated with mythology: Phoebus, for example.
