Finding the Right Superhero Dog Name

There are so many wonderfully magic names to choose from when it comes to the interesting world of comics – and Marvel and DC characters do not disappoint! With bold and firey names like Thor and Huntress or dark and mysterious, such as Loki and Zoom, we hope you have found one that matches the inner Superhero your pup has! Although your dog may not have remarkable strength, the incredible power to fly, or instantly become invisible, we know that each of these names will represent them well! If you are having trouble narrowing it down to one – consider these helpful tips: 

  • One to two-syllable names are easier to say. Really long names are a pain, especially during training, so just keep that in mind if you find one you love. A little “Queen Elizabeth the 3rd” may be the fitting name for your regal pup, but using that as her proper name and calling her Lizzie will probably serve you and her much better.
  • Think of the personality your puppy has (or is likely to have). Most dog breeds have specific qualities, so even before your puppy comes home, it is somewhat easy to pick a name. Or, you may choose to have your furry friend at home with you for a few days while you get to know him or her and then pick the name to express their character.
  • Love the name you choose. Don’t settle for something you don’t really like unless you’re making a family decision, of course. You can (and most likely will) always come up with nicknames for your dog as they grow anyways, but when possible, be in love with the name.
