Nickelodeon has been entertaining children for decades. Their shows are always fresh and unique, offering an interesting world for children to enter. The Avatar series is one of those triumphs, and many children grew up watching Aang and Korra struggle to bring peace to a world full of element benders. The Avatar universe is wide and diverse, with several characters to love. Each character is different, and it is impossible not to fall in love with all of them. They also have interesting names, which is what we will be looking at. Why not name your dog after the Avatar?
Avatar: The Last Airbender Dog Names in Pop Culture
The life of an Avatar is not an easy one. As proven by the series, each Avatar has their own set of challenges and they never have it easy. This is probably why they have animal companions. Each Avatar has their own special animal companion that joins them at some point during their journey. This animal will follow them around and become their best friends. Often, they are powerful animals that are just as special as the Avatar. One of these animals belonged to Aang’s successor, Korra. Korra was a water bending Avatar who had a lot to deal with in her time. Thankfully, she had her animal companion, a polar bear dog named Naga.
Naga and Korra met when they were still young. Naga had been separated from her pack and was lost, Korra found her after she snuck out of the house one day. Naga became Korra’s best friend and fiercest protector. We all know what it is like to have a dog as your best friend. No-one could love you or care about you more than your precious puppy. Naga was no exception. She was a gentle, and graceful dog. She allowed people to pet her and had a sense of humor too. She loved treats and would gently admonish anyone who petted her without giving her a treat. She was playful and loved to goof around with members of the Avatar team.
Naga was also a fearsome animal. That is what you would expect from a polar bear dog. On numerous occasions she showcased her strength on behalf of her best friend. When people tried to kidnap Korra, they had to deal with Naga first. And Naga always came first. She was fearless in battle, and never disobeyed Korra’s orders. When people tried to threaten Korra, they were threatened by Naga.
The Avatar and her dog were closer than anything, and Naga never abandoned her mistress. The two of them made a formidable sight together since Naga was taller than Korra, and a lot stronger too. Despite her height and power, she was never a bully or hurt people who weren’t trying to hurt her. All she wanted was to be by Korra’s side. Only a dog could be that loyal and pure. Naga is a unique breed, but her personality is not. There are many dogs out there who are the same with their owners.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Dog Name Considerations
In the Last Airbender’s story, we are introduced to a world full of impossible features. People are born with the ability to “bend” the elements to their will. We have the traditional earth, fire, water, and air. But in these categories, people got creative. For example, some earth benders could control metal while some fire benders could control lightning from their fingertips. Out of all these feats, the most impressive is the Avatar. The Avatar can bend all the elements to his will and can master all four elements. Usually, he or she would travel far and wide to find tutors.
In the Last Airbender, however, we follow Aang. An Airbender Avatar who disappeared just as the Fire Nation enslaved the entire world. A hundred years later, he returns alongside a diverse team at his side. We meet all sorts of interesting characters in this universe. From the adversity caused by the oppressive Fire Nation, rebels and freedom fighters are everywhere. We learn to love these rebels and all of them are brave, loyal and strong. Besides all that, they all have different personalities. In this naming guide, you will find a bunch of names that suit your dog’s personality.
