Weird Dog Names
After Monsters In Movies,
TV, Or Your Closet


These weird dog names after monsters are perfect if you're a fan of monster movies, TV programs or even legendary creatures thought to exist.

Who doesn't have a favorite movie monster, or even one from TV? We know we still enjoy watching reruns of cheesy Japanese movies where Godzilla is battling some weird new monster mutant that was created from offshore nuclear testing.

Or how about monster dog names after legendary creatures? Have you ever seen Bigfoot? or the abominable snowman aka Yeti? We didn't think so.

Here's a few weird dog names after monsters that we think might make a good choice if you're a fan...

Big Foot: Made a legend from all the undocumented sightings as well as small towns that needed tourist dollars, this is a great weird dog name choice for large breeds or small spunky Chihuahuas.

Cujo: Love Stephen King? then name your own pup after the weird psychotic dog character who he wrote his book Cujo after.

Dogzilla: Yes, we know this is a canine knockoff  from the legendary Godzilla, but we still think it's a great idea for a large breed, or even a small breed that has an attitude.

Yoda: After the Star Wars character, we can see this name on a small pup, or better yet a Pug.
