Introduction

When thinking about what to name your new canine pal, you may feel overwhelmed by all of the possibilities. No matter your age, it is likely that at some point you have enjoyed playing with toys; in fact, even as an adult, you may still have an affinity for them. And if your dog is small, he or she may remind you in some ways of a toy; perhaps a favorite stuffed animal. An option when naming your new friend is a name inspired by a favorite or popular toy; this name is sure to bring a smile to your face each time you call for your pup.

Toy Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a toy-inspired name can be appealing for multiple reasons. For one, your new canine buddy may remind you of a certain toy; for example, a well-muscled dog may make you think of He-Man, while a well coifed pooch may remind you of Barbie.

 You may be a fan of a particular toy and giving your new pal a name relating to that toy can lead to a warm and fuzzy feeling every time you call out his name. The toy may remind you of a particular time in your life that is fun to think about, thus the ongoing reminder will bring about pleasant memories. A dog of a “toy” breed may seem a particularly good fit for a toy-inspired moniker.

No matter what reason you have for seeking a toy inspired name for your new friend, there are plenty of options available to consider. This is a great opportunity to take a look at the toys of your past as well as those of the present for the perfect moniker for your canine pal.
