Introduction

When it comes to historic films, Titanic stands as one of the greatest romance and disaster films in American cinema. In turn, it also marked a turning point for director James Cameron, who had established himself in Hollywood for his work on some of the most prolific action movies of his era. But the story of Titanic goes far beyond the film. It is still marked as one of the most significant tragedies in American history. It not only included already prominent figures of the time, but turned others, including survivors, into historic names. Alongside their fictional counterparts and additions, they all combine to provide a great list of themed dog names.

Titanic Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When trying to come up with an appropriate Titanic themed dog name, the best course of action is first making a list of your dog’s most prominent traits, including their looks, breed type or origin, personality and quirks. Once the list is compiled, compare it to our list of important characters, places and other names and see what suits them best. 

If you’re a bit of a romantic, the names Jack, Dawson, Rose, Bukater, Ida and Isador would be appropriate, as all four characters were hopeless romantics throughout the film (and the latter two in real life). If your dog is good at keeping you calm under pressure, then the names Byles, Woodward, Brailey, Krins, Bricoux and Hartley would all be appropriate, as all real-life figures were known for their endless dedication to consoling passengers, even as the ship went down. If your dog acts like royalty but still has a good heart, then the names Countess, Rothes and Noël would all be appropriate. 

Given the vast number of characters and meaningful names, there are plenty of directions you can go. If you need further inspiration, consider re-watching the film or a documentary about the original ship, as both will provide fresh insight as to what might be suitable.
