50 Literary Dog Name Ideas

Back in November I adopted my first dog ever. Before I finally settled on her name (Daisy), I had a lot to contemplate. I thought it would be fun to put together a list of ideas for literary dog names! Most I came up with on my own, but I also used this article for some ideas. πŸ™‚ The series or book it comes from is in parentheses if it isn’t immediately obvious from the name.
