800+ Movie Dog Names for Iconic Pups

This post may contain affiliate links. Read more here.

Deciding on a name for your puppy or rescue dog isn’t easy but you know that you want it to be special, unique, and distinctive.

When you tell anyone your dog’s name you want to hear people say “wow, that’s such a cool name.” And what could be cooler than giving your dog a name from your favorite movie or show?

You can also opt to name your dog after one of the most famous dogs that have been starred in iconic films.

Movie names are great to match your pup’s personality with one of the actors. Is your dog independently spirited or totally goofy? Is he a leader or a smart mind?

Also, think about your dog’s appearance when choosing a name. What would be the best match for a muscular, strong dog or an elegant, athletic one?

Even before getting the dog, use his potential name in as much conversations as possible to see if it has a great ring to it.

You should be obsessed with your movie name decision and it should be so unique that no dog in your household or in your circle of friends has a similar sound to it to avoid confusion.

If you are getting a puppy, consider purchasing this complete puppy planner that will make your life so much easier in the first couple of months!

John Wick Dog Name

There is more than one dog that played an important role in the John Wick movies. First, we have the cute Beagle puppy that was only 8 months old when he took on the role.

In the movie, he was called Daisy although his real name was Andy. He is the only dog that was specifically bought for the film from a breeder.

After Daisy’s devastating death, Wick saves a male Pitbull from being put down and leaves him nameless.

If you have watched John Wick Chapter 3 you will definitely remember the two iconic Belgian Malinois.

But there were actually more than two dogs walking at the sides of Halle Berry. Five dogs were switched for different stunts and parts of the movie.

The dog’s names are Tai, Sam 7, Santana, Ikar, and Boyca and they were all handled and trained by the actress alone.

Dog Names From Disney Movies
