Walt Disney World is full of animals. The Fab Five are some of our favorite animals in the entire world. Two mice, a duck, a dog, and whatever Goofy is. There’s Clarabelle the Cow, Jiminy Cricket, the Cheshire Cat, and even a Tiki Room full of singing birds. We are surrounded!
When we talk about being neurotic Disney people and incorporating Disney in every aspect of our lives, I can’t help but think of a major way that I have added Disney to my life: by naming my pets after Disney Characters.
I have one little cat that I have named Roo, after Kanga’s baby from Winnie the Pooh. Roo had twin kittens about a year ago, a girl and a boy, and their names are Rexx, after Rex from Toy Story, and Remy from Ratatouille. I personally can’t just name my pets anything. I believe that a name has to “fit”. I thought Roo fit her name perfectly, because she is a very little cat. She is only about 7 lbs. “Little Roo” is in the Winnie the Pooh song, so the name worked.
The beauty of naming your pet is that it’s your decision! If you have a cat you want to name Catatouille, you can. If you love Beauty and the Beast, you can name your pets after the castle gang: Chip, Cogsworth, Lumiere. No name is off limits! So, with this in mind, I have picked out some pet characteristic and some appropriate Disney names to go with them. Here it goes:
If you own a dog with big ears, perhaps a Basset Hound, a perfect name would be Dumbo.
If you have a pair of hamsters that look fairly similar, Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dumb may be good choices.
Eeyore is a great name for an animal that takes it time, such as a turtle.
How about Walt and Roy for a pair of kittens that come from the same litter?
If you have bird with a long beak, or a dog with a particularly long snout, how about Pinocchio?
Anyway, these are just a few off the top of my head. Do you have any pets named after Disney characters? I’m a sucker for a clever pet name. Leave a comment on the blog and let me know what your Disney critter’s names are! We may even feature your pet in an upcoming blog post!
