Introduction

If you’re a fan of science fiction, chances are that you’re a fan of Blade Runner. Based on one of the most highly regarded sci-fi books ever written (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) by one of the most well-loved writers in the genre (Phillip K. Dick), Blade Runner became a legend in its own right thanks to the help of famed director Ridley Scott. Numerous awards later with a cult following in tow, Blade Runner rose to stardom with a cast of unforgettable characters that have names as iconic as those they’re tied to, making the perfect opportunity for potential dog-namers to take advantage of.

Blade Runner Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Coming up with a Blade Runner inspired dog name will be no easy feat, but with a little preparation, you should have no trouble trying to “retire” the process. We suggest first making a list of your dog’s most defining and prominent traits, as it will be an easier shortcut when comparing them to the names and descriptions on our list. 

For instance, if your dog is a grizzled veteran, the name Deckard might work. If they’re particularly strong but not always so smart, then the names Leon and Kowalski would certainly fit. If they’re super acrobatic and/or intelligent, then the names Pris and Stratton would be solid choices. If you’re more into the story as a whole and simply want to pay tribute to the great minds behind it, the process will be super easy, as you can select one of many names or titles, from Ridley and Fancher to Blade and Runner. 

Given the number of characters, creators, influencers, and jargon, there should be no shortage of directions you can take the naming process. Test a few ideas out and see if it really fits them, and if you need any further inspiration, there’s a book and two films you can re-read or watch to brush up.
