Introduction

Bicentennial man is a movie based on a novel written by Isaac Asimov and Robert Silverberg, which itself is an extended version of Isaac Asimov’s short story of the same name that was published as part of the I, Robot anthology in 1951. This movie, starring Robin Williams as the bicentennial man, was released in 1999 and follows the life of a robot that develops emotional responses and creativity, then spends his considerable life trying to become more human, including the experience of falling in love. It tends to be more sentimental than most movies in the science-fiction genre, and leaves us pondering rather weighty and emotional subjects, including complex definitions of ideas such as humanity, freedom, love, and mortality.

Bicentennial Man Inspired Dog Name Considerations

People choose names for their canine companions using several different methods; some pick a name based on a specific meaning, while others may choose a name that honors someone, either someone that they are personally familiar with or a public figure that they admire. Another popular method for picking a name is to choose a name based on a book, movie, or television show that speaks to you. Bicentennial Man, released in 1999, was a sentimental movie that explored some very meaningful concepts that can provide inspiration for some great canine names. Some of the names can describe your dog's behavior or preferences, such as Chess for a smart dog or Paula or Opera for a musically inclined dog, while other names can embody ideas that are raised by this movie, such as Freedom or Destiny. 

Many people will choose a name based on a character in the movie, such as Amanda, Rupert, Galatea, or even Andrew, while others prefer names that honor the actors behind the characters, such as Hallie, Oliver, Kiersten, or Robin, and still others may employ names that honor the behind the scenes aspects of the movie, by naming their canine companion after author Isaac Asimov, for the Oracle Corporation where part of the movie was filmed, or Rusalka, the opera featured in the film.
