Tom and Huck Inspired Dog Names

So you've decided to get a dog? Regardless if you are adopting from a shelter, receiving a pup from a friend or buying from a breeder, one of the first tasks that you will have to take on is giving your new four-legged pal a name. As simple as it sounds, it takes a lot of brainstorming to get the perfect moniker. The dog-naming process is similar to choosing a name for a baby, albeit with a little more leeway. To make things a bit easier for you, you need to take into account some factors.

One of the biggest no-no’s in naming your dog is choosing a name from a passing pop culture trend. This is especially tempting nowadays, with more and more viral videos, memes, internet sensations and other fads brought about by the digital age. For instance, there might have been a period in your life when you were obsessed with YouTuber Logan Paul that you decided to name your dog after him, which is an unfortunate choice given all problematic actions and controversy surrounding his image at present.

If you are looking to give your dog a name based on a pop culture reference or work, make sure that it is from a classic piece of work that has been around for years. This includes historical figures, famous authors and literary characters, to name a few. A good example is the name “Tom” or “Huck”, from Mark Twain’s enduring novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
