Introduction

Of all the socially and environmentally conscious programming that has existed throughout television history, Captain Planet may be one of the most easily overlooked. It may have spanned six seasons in two iterations but for anyone who grew up outside of the early-to-mid 90s (and even some that didn’t), it probably looked like any other generic animated series from the era. But at its core, Captain Planet was both important and influential, inspiring a generation of children to be ecologically friendly and aware of the pitfalls of laziness and carelessness, as well as the virtue of integrity. With the show came a full roster of ridiculously-named Eco-Villains, the likes of which sported as much character in name as they did in personality, making the perfect fodder for themed dog-naming. Of course, it didn’t hurt to have celebrities doing many of the show’s voices either.

Captain Planet Dog Name Considerations

Considerations for this themed dog naming are about as far and wide as the Earth’s latitudinal lines, meaning there is an absolute ton of ways you can go about the process. Our best suggestions would be to first make a list of your dog’s idiosyncratic traits, such as their looks, personality, and other outstanding quirks, as these will be the best and easiest basis for finding a match. 

Aesthetically, you may not find your dog to be light blue with a bright red chest coloring or green hair like Captain Planet, but there are plenty of other characters you can use. For instance, if your dog has a bit of a piggish look, such as some kind of Bulldog, then the names Hoggish and Greedly would be perfect, especially if they have a penchant for leaving lots of messes around. If they have a scar on their face or white streaks in their otherwise yellowish hair, then Blight would be a great fit — you can always work on the bright pink jumpsuit down the road. 

There are tons of ways you can go with it, such as basing their name on a personality trait they share with a character or a similar place of origin, as each of the Planeteers was from a different part of the world. Just remember, the more suitable and clever the name is, the longer you’re likely to enjoy it for both its meaning and novelty, so choose wisely and don’t forget: The power is yours!
