For many people, the 1990s prompt happy memories, like the sweet togetherness of swaying and singing at a Dave Matthews Band concert or watching Friends in real time. Dubbing your pup with a '90s dog name helps you reminisce on this era and brings out the fun of simpler days—you know, when the sound of a dial-up modem meant there were only 10 more minutes before you could check email.

So whether you're a true child of the '90s, still airwalking at the skate park in flannel and overalls while listening to Pearl Jam on your Walkman, or just find comfort after a hectic day by streaming endless episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, unpack a Lunchable, and pop a straw into a Capri Sun. We've pulled together a list of 90s-inspired dog names that are da bomb.
