25 Disneyfied Names for Furry Friends


Well, not right away.

But soon.

Like in the next year soon.

Until then, we’re trying to choose between a Great Dane, Irish wolfhound and Labrador Retriever.

Or a Basset hound and a French bulldog – if you ask the grandparents their vote.

Or a Newfoundland and an Airedale and a Boxer and a Wiemeraner if you ask the internets. Plus Labradoodles. And Goldendoodles. Basically all the doodles.

While we ultimately don’t yet know what kind of breed we’ll be bringing home, all this new pet pow-wowing has sparked some really fun ideas for names.

And they’re all Disney ones.

    My children are little, so their frame of reference doesn't stray too far from pixie-dusted territory.

    That being said, I was surprised to see some pretty strong contenders on their lists that went beyond Cinderella, Hercules and Lightning McQueen.

    Here are 25 pet names that might just inspire you to bestow a Disneyfied moniker on your furry friends.
  • Baloo 2 of 26
    Makes you forget about your worries and your strife, doesn't it?
  • Beast 3 of 26
    The littlest dogs think they're the toughest. This image comes to mind every single time I see one high-stepping down the street.
  • Belle 4 of 26
    Consider it a synonym for Princess.
  • Bolt 5 of 26
    So cute it's redonkulous.
  • Gus 6 of 26
    Loyal yet not that bright. Makes me love him all the more.
  • Merryweather 7 of 26
    My personal fave, this one is all twinkly fairy dust and pillowy soft cuddles.
  • Flynn 8 of 26
    Thief, charming, epic hero - things cats think about themselves already.

    * See Solo.
  • Wall-E 9 of 26
    Just try and look away from those eyes...
  • Tinker Bell 10 of 26
    Tinker Bell
    Feisty, stubborn, and she can fly! That cancels out the first two things, right?
  • Tod 11 of 26
    You can't go wrong borrowing from one of the most epic friendships in all of Disney history. *See Copper.
  • Copper 12 of 26
    More epicness. *See Tod.
  • Dug 13 of 26
    He has just met you, and he loves you.
  • Bruno 14 of 26
    Someone has to keep the cats away.
  • Chewie 15 of 26
    Pretty sure he's a Newfoundland.
  • Solo 16 of 26
    Like Flynn, but vintage.

    * See Flynn.
  • Captain. And Jack. Maybe even Sparrow. 17 of 26
    Captain. And Jack. Maybe even Sparrow.
    SO CUTE. Yes, yes, your critter too.

    Because he wins at all the names.
  • Sebastian 19 of 26
    Likes being kept on a short leash. Just saying.

    Two words: Scary feet.

    Hey, if it's good enough for the Head Mouse...
  • Maximus 22 of 26
    One word: Multitasker.

    Every baby animal's thought bubble the minute you bring them home for the first time.
  • Nana 25 of 26
    The animal version of your Mee-Maw.

    This Inuit word means "black bear," and it sounds all cool and stuff.
