Fictional characters can be very endearing in our minds and hearts. That endearment shows through even when it comes to naming a pet. These brilliant book, movie, and TV inspired whippet names are a perfect example.
Whippets have lively characteristics. Their faces and facial expressions can seem animated at times. Whippet ears are a character in themselves! They go up, down, straight out, forward, back, and every which way.
So it’s not surprising many whippets are named after characters found in books, movies, and television.
And commercials too. Yep, scroll down to see for yourself.
