Disney characters have been part of almost every childhood - everybody can name a favorite hero, heroine or sidekick animal! Therefore, it's no surprise that many people take inspiration from Disney films when they choose a name for their pets, as they bring to mind a warm, nostalgic and happy feeling.

In this AnimalWised article we'll share a long, long list of Disney names for dogs as well as some tips to choose the perfect name. Since Pixar has belonged to Disney since 2006, we've included Pixar characters as well. Take a look!

Choosing the perfect name for your dog

The most basic tip to choose the perfect name for your dog is to find a simple, meaningful name that's easy to pronounce. Since Disney characters are usually short and they're familiar for everyone, a Disney name will be perfect!

It's always best to choose a name that reflects your dog's looks or personality. If you have a Dalmatian, Pongo or Perdita will be perfect; if you have a fluffy, red-coated dog, why not name them Robin Hood or Ariel? Of course, some Disney characters like Pluto or Goofy are actually dogs, but you can also consider the names of mouse or cat characters if their personality fits.

A dog's name is a key tool in their socialization process and training, so it's not enough that it sounds pretty: it has to be practical. Experts recommend choosing names that are 2 or 3 syllables long and that do not sound similar to daily words. You should never use your dog's name when angry, because your dog will associate it with punishment or feeling bad.
