100+ Disney Names for Your Dog

When you’re trying to decide on a name for your new dog, there’s no better place to look for inspiration than Disney, especially if you are already a Disney fan. The many animated and live-action movies of Disney contain a plethora of dogs and other characters that you can name your furry friend at home after.

If you don’t know where to start when looking for a Disney dog name, you’re in luck! We’ve gathered a list of the most popular Disney names that you can choose from to name your dog.

How to Choose a Name for Your Dog

When choosing a name for your dog, make sure that it is something that you can see yourself calling them, day after day. Don’t choose anything that will be too hard for you to pronounce or call out when training your dog, as you will likely end up getting tongue-tied or shortening the name to a nickname. You can also select a name that alludes to your dog’s personality (like “Princess”) or one that is based on their physical description (like “Spot”).

No matter how you narrow down potential names for your dog, remember to not overthink and choose something that you feel drawn to as the perfect name for your pooch.
