What are some great Disney dog names?
If you love Disney movies, you’ll maybe want to choose a Disney dog name for your new puppy or rescue dog.
Disney certainly has a wealth of possibilities for you if you’re choosing Disney dog names!
In this article, we’ve picked out lots of great name ideas that are drawn from Disney creations.
We’ll also talk about how to choose a name for your dog; it’s not as easy as you think!
Naming Your Disney Dog Puppy or Rescue Dog
When you buy a new puppy or adopt a rescue dog, you’ll need to come up with a great name for him if he doesn’t already have one.
If you take a dog from a rescue center, the chances are that he will already have a name.
If he does, don’t change the name to something else.
Changing your dog’s name will only confuse him and he won’t find it easy to learn a new one, especially if he’s an older pup.
When choosing a name for your dog, always pick something short that your pup will be able to remember easily.
Keep it simple!
Names that are very long and complex are tricky to memorize and learn.
Also, a long name will get lost in the wind when calling your pup at the dog park or in an emergency.
Stick to names that have only one or two syllables and which have a clear vowel sound.
For example, “Jack” is a name that you can call out quickly.
It has one clear vowel sound, making it easy for your dog to learn.
Also, try to avoid picking a name that sounds too much like the name of one of your other pets or family members.
Just imagine how confusing that would be at meal times!
Finally, you don’t want a name that sounds too much like a training command.
For example, “Ray,” although it might make a great unusual name for a dog, sounds too much like “Stay.”

Fun Facts About Disney Dog
Here are a few fun facts about the most famous Disney dogs, Pluto and Goofy.
- Pluto is very romantic! In fact, he’s fallen head over paws in love lots of times. In his first animated short Disney movie that was made in 1937, Pluto fell in love with Fifi the Pekinese. Fifi was known as Mrs. Pluto in this movie and she and Pluto were the proud parents of five rambunctious puppies!
- Pluto earned himself an Academy Award for the Mickey Mouse cartoon short, “Lend a Paw,” which was released in color in 1941. The movie won the award for Best Animated Short that year.
- In the world of Disney, fans have always debated why Pluto walks on four legs while Goofy walks on two. Well, according to Disney animators, Goofy is not a dog! Goofy is categorized as a “funny animal.” He’s been made more humanized to make him more relatable to the audience, just like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. So, although Goofy and Pluto may share some physical characteristics, they are two totally different entities. Who knew?
So, when you welcome your new puppy or rescue dog into your home, you now have plenty of inspiration and ideas of how to name him.
