Charles Dickens Dog Names

Charles Dickens Dog Names

"Add a twist to naming your dog."

Charles Dickens was one of the world's greatest authors with a knack for coming up with some really memorable names for his characters. Who'll ever forget Oliver Twist, Ebenezer Scrooge or Uriah Heep?

Our list includes names like:

BUZFUZ:Serjeant Buzfuz, a barrister (The Pickwick papers)

LIZZIE:Lizzie Hexman (Our Mutual Friend)

NIPPER:The maid, Susan Nipper (Dombey and Son)

TARTAR:Retired navy man (The Mystery of Edwin Drood)

Mr Dickens was also a renowned dog lover who once kept eight of his own, so I'm sure he'd have no problem with us using his character names for our dogs. In fact, I'm sure he'd be delighted.
