Our dogs are fairly similar to celebrities when we think about it. They are constantly getting random attention from strangers, consistently photographed without their consent, are paid (in doggy treats!) when they make us laugh or follow orders, and finally, are waited on hand and foot – or paw and tail, more accurately speaking. We can’t help but obsess over them, talk about them every chance we can, and wonder what they do every second of every day.

So naturally, a name as interesting and captivating as one of the all-star celebs we have noted below might be the perfect match you’ve been searching for. If your pup wasn’t already popular enough, with one of these names, they are sure to be noticed wherever they are.

We have noted our favorite celeb names for females and males, some of the most original and hilarious pun names, a few inspired by music, others from the big names in Hollywood, and even some suggestions straight from the White House.
