Introduction

For fans of Harper Lee and classic American literature, there are few better places to pull themed names from than To Kill a Mockingbird. At its heart, the story touches on themes many dog owners come to know throughout their lifetimes such as courage, compassion, control and even the loss of innocence. Its characters are varied and interesting, providing potential dog-namers a hefty roster of titles to choose from. Even if not all of the characters are popular, they are undoubtedly quirky (and frighteningly realistic at times), many of which boast names that could be perfect fits for your similarly quirky pooch.

To Kill a Mockingbird Inspired Dog Name Considerations

There are plenty of ways to go about picking an apt To Kill a Mockingbird inspired name, so you’ll want to give each avenue strong consideration before making any permanent decisions. From the get-go, the book is plentiful with classic southern names, so even if you don’t want to name them after a character’s traits, you’ll certainly have some good choices if you’re looking for something traditional and regional. 

If you do want to dig a bit deeper, however, you’ll have some options as well. Before diving in, consider your dog’s strongest or most prominent characteristics, as this will be the quickest and easiest way to find links between them and characters from the book. If they happen to be a good role model for other dogs or a strong paternal figure, the name Atticus would be suitable - or Calpurnia if they're strongly maternal. If they happen to be fun, playful and full of youth, then the names Scout, Jem, and Dill would certainly be appropriate. If your dog is either reclusive or a bit of a troublemaker, then the names Boo and Radley would also work well.

There are plenty of things you can base your naming options on, you’ll just have to feel it out once you get to that stage. If need be, go back and read the book again and see if anything else jumps out at you that might be the perfect fit.
