First released in 1939, The Wizard of Oz is a musical fantasy film that has been watched for generations and is considered by many to be one of the greatest films in the history of cinema.

The film features the dog Toto, an adorable Cairn Terrier. While Wizard of Oz fans may consider the name Toto for their new pup, there are a myriad of other names that will evoke thoughts of the classic film when called.

Wizard of Oz Name Considerations

A Wizard of Oz-themed name for your dog may be appealing for fans of the classic film of all ages. For adults, thoughts of the Wizard of Oz can evoke memories of their childhood when they would get to stay up late to watch the film’s annual television broadcast. Children and adults alike will enjoy a reminder of the adventures of Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion and the Tin Man each time they call the name of their new friend.

Small dogs in particular may bring to mind Dorothy’s dog, Toto, and lead to a name having to do with the Wizard of Oz. As Toto was a Cairn Terrier, a dog of the breed may be particularly suited to a name from the film. Your dog may be good at following trails, leading you to thoughts of following that famous yellow brick road and a Wizard of Oz-themed name for your new friend.
