If you've been inspired to take home your own real-life Bluey or Bingo, it's handy to have this list of Bluey dog names.

The hit Australian cartoon centers on Bluey, a 7-year-old Australian cattle dog and her family. Millions of children, parents, and childless Millennials enjoy the show's lessons, wry humor, and jaunty music. It may even inspire some of us to bring a heeler puppy home—though you should really think about it first

Regardless of your puppy's breed, Bluey provides plenty of inspiration for naming your new addition. Have an insistent, loud pup? Muffin. A proper, fit chow chow? Wendy. A Labrador retriever always down for an activity or game? Pat. Just, please, don't name your dog after Unicorse. Or Chattermax for that matter.  

From the Heeler family to Bluey and Bingo's cadre of friends, surely there's a name on this list fit for your new puppy. If not, we've got a list of names from the opposite side of the TV spectrum.
