Introduction

For fans of science fiction or just extraterrestrials in general, giving your dog an alien name is a great way to tell others that they are either strange, unique or out of this world — or simply that you’re a fan of the genre. Whatever the case may be, there have been tons of aliens throughout history that have come to light thanks to the entertainment industry and the pop culture that surrounds it. From legends like Star Trek and Star Wars to lesser-known black and white classic movies like Robot Monster, there are more than enough options for giving your dog an alien name.

Alien Dog Name Considerations

Coming up with the right alien name for your dog can be tricky business. You’ll obviously want to find one that fits them but suits you as well, so a little thought and research beforehand can help narrow the search more quickly. We suggest starting by making a list of their most defining traits as well as a list of your favorite sci-fi movies, television shows, comics and so on. Once you’ve done both, identify what aliens exist amongst your favorites, then start to compare characteristics.

For instance, if you’re a fan of Star Trek, you’ll have plenty of options between the characters themselves, like Whorf or Spock, to the species/races they originate from, such as Klingon and Vulcan. Don’t be afraid to go beyond your favorites either. If your dog has particularly long hair or tends to have a strange, throaty howl, then Chewbacca might be a good fit. If they have a huge mouth and tend to eat everything in sight, then maybe the name Audrey would be more suitable. 

Start by narrowing down your list to your favorite titles and characters and see what fits best for the pair of you. If you need any further inspiration, don’t hesitate to go back and re-watch or re-read whatever seems the most promising.
