Great pet names from the movies


Getting a pet is a rare and wonderful experience that should be properly marked by giving them an awesome name you’ll be sure to appreciate for years to come, even after their hair falls out and they lose control of their bowels. Why settle for something commonplace when classic movie characters offer so many more interesting options? Here are a few suggestions from TDYLF to shamelessly adopt as your own or inspire you to new heights of pet nomenclature.

Lando Catrissian, The Empire Strikes Back

Type of pet: Cat

First of all, Lando is a great name for a pet. Second, cats are just as likely to stab you in the back as Lando.

Antonius Block, The Seventh Seal

Type of pet: A very large dog

Bonus points if your dog is soul-searching about the existence of God.

Khan, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Type of pet: Dog.

Every time you wanted him to come to you, you could yell out ‘KHAAAAAAAAN!”

Count Dooku, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Type of pet: Any animal that’s poorly house-trained

Clearly, you should strive to house-train your pets. But if it just won’t take, embrace it by naming it after the character whose name sounds most like what Star Wars fans felt like they got dumped on their head.

    I have a small, fluffy brown dog named Wicket. So far she is unable to wield a spear, which I think can only be to our benefit.
