Are you an anime fan? Do you love the intricate storylines and whimsical characters? If you are an aficionado of the famous Japanese art form, you might consider giving your new puppy a name that came from one of your favorite animated series. Usually, anime characters have large eyes, mostly disproportionate to the size of their heads. Therefore, if your dog is a wide-eyed sweetheart, anime-inspired name might be perfect for them! Coming up with an anime name can be a nice excuse to re-watch your favorite shows or have cozy nights in with your friends and family, noting down the character traits that best fit your new pup.

Anime Dog Name Considerations

Naming your dog after an anime character doesn’t mean that you are limited to dogs in anime. Sometimes, the best names come from your favorite human or otherworldly characters you have grown fond of over the years of watching their adventures on your screen. So, think about a show that really made an impact on you, a character whose traits you find inspiring enough to have your dog named by them. Take your dog’s personality into account as well! If you have a particularly energetic and maybe even loud dog, a name such as Naruto might suit them perfectly, especially if their coat is orange!

For a raven-coat pup, a legendary name such as Goku could be a winner, especially when you take into consideration that he is one of the most iconic anime characters ever. If you are into short names, your dog’s moniker could become L, after the famous character from Death Note (plus, if you are a fan of Stranger Things, you’ll like the name even more).

Finally, the naming process will be a challenging task, since there are so many options to choose from, but do not let that discourage you! It just means that your puppy will end up with a name which has an epic backstory!
