Introduction

The sky is such a vast and beautiful space; the light blue color is calming yet so happy and full of life. There must have been a great amount of inspiration that was pulled from the beauty of the sky when Hayao Miyazaki wrote his 1986 film with the title of Laputa: Castle in the Sky. 

This film is about a young boy who lives on Earth, but one with an alternate history from what we have today. It takes place sometime between the years of 1868-1900, but this world is full of mechanical wonders that are slightly off. Such as pirate flaptors and islands that float in the sky. Daily life goes by with nothing too unexpected, aside from the occasional attack by air pirates, until one day the main character, Pazu, stumbles across a strange site; a young girl ascending from the sky with nothing to aid her except for a crystal necklace. This crystal is the Secret of Laputa, which many have been searching for, for generations. Laputa is the flying Castle and it is there that the children race to return the crystal. On their journey they encounter Dola's gang (a group of air pirates lusting after the crystal), Colonel Muska's agents (the main antagonist of the movie), and many other obstacles that are all out to stop them and steal away the precious treasure. 

It is through loyalty and determination that the children hope to prevail in their quest. The movie is inspiring, just like many of Miyazaki's films, with beautiful music and breathtaking art that truly captures the heart; no matter how old the watcher may be.

Castle in the Sky Dog Name Considerations

When thinking about what kind of dogs will fit names from the movie Castle in the Sky, there really is no wrong or right. The sky is extremely vast and so are the possibilities at hand! A large dog, such as a Bernese Mountain Dog would be an excellent candidate for a moniker of this group. Their sweet nature and large, beautiful forms would match up nicely with a name like "Wakaba" for a male or "Gaia" for a female. Of course, with this film being Japanese in origin, there are plenty of names that represent the themes of Castle in the Sky with Japanese names. Such as "Uki" and "Morio". A blue heeler would work wonderfully with the name "Aoi" which is a Japanese word for the color blue. While these are just a few suggestions, there are many more that would be perfect for dogs of all kinds. If you love Castle in the Sky, then no matter what kind of dog you have, you can make these names work wonderfully!
