Pop Culture Dog Names 2019

Nymeria, Simba, Archie, and 50 Other Pop-Culture Names For Dogs in 2019

Naming a new dog can be tough — especially when you want to move away from things like Rover or Max — which is where pop culture can come in to save the day. With each new year, new pop-culture moments make their marks on our memories — for 2019, the final season of Game of Thrones, Disney's lineup of new movies including Toy Story 4 and the live-action The Lion King, and shows like Riverdale, The Handmaid's Tale, and Killing Eve come to mind. And even though they're not current, per se, the hype lives on with franchises like Harry Potter and movies like Legally Blonde (even Ariana Grande made a nod to the iconic film in her "Thank U, Next" music video).

Scroll through for some of our favourite names for dogs in 2019 that come from all different pop-culture references — some very new and some a bit older, but all totally hyped by fans.
