The Nutcracker Inspired Dog Name Considerations

If you’re thinking about The Nutcracker, you know that you have a bevy of beloved characters to choose from. The lists below will certainly help put you and your pooch on the name-picking path. If you’re going for that immediate recognition (you know, when your friends and family hear the selected title for the first time), then choose a character: “Nutcracker,” “Sugar Plum,” or “Drosselmeyer.” If you want to make more of a subtle nod to the ballet, try “Clara,” “Mousy,” or “Cavelier.”

You might also turn to some names behind the show, the ones of the makers themselves: “Pyotr,” “Marius,” and “Lev.” You could even research dancers who’ve performed the roles, such as “Rudolf,” “Mikhail,” and “Morris.” You might also like “Ginger” or “Gingerbread,” “Candy” or “Cane,” or maybe “Dew Drop” or “Midnight.” Sometimes, it’s a good idea to watch clips or a full version of the show to truly soak up the experience again and hunt for monikers that match your dog’s personality and appearance. It’s a wonderful display of good triumphing over evil, dreams coming true, and happily ever after, which we definitely think you should believe in when it comes to the canine realm. We hope our name guide inspires you. Give your magical fur child a magical title that will walk and Wag! with them wherever they go.
