Introduction

Crimson Tide is a 1995 film starring Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman. Directed by the late Tony Scott - younger brother of the equally prolific Ridley Scott - and written by Michael Schiffer (of Colors fame), the film takes place during the Cold War. Washington's character, Lieutenant Commander Ron Hunter, and Gene Hackman's character, Captain Frank Ramsey, serve together aboard the same nuclear submarine. The two men uncover a terrorist plot that could potentially kick start a nuclear war. Both men strongly disagree as to how they should go about resolving the crisis and a battle of wits and wills ensues in this intense submarine war film.

Crimson Tide Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The film ultimately has an anti-war message at its core, praying for cooler heads to prevail in times in intense political crisis. Lieutenant Commander Hunter is the most vocal in terms of trying to prevent any blood from being spilled but the film overall does a good job at showing how costly and chaotic even the pretense of war can be, let alone the genuine, bloody affair. It's also rather telling that the film doesn't go out of its way to demonize anyone involved with the Cold War. If you're a strong proponent against senseless war, you should consider naming your dog after a Crimson Tide character.

The film also pays the utmost respect to the United States Military; Hunter and Ramsey are members of the US Navy, so most of our time is spent with Naval personnel and commanding officers. Whenever the other branches of the US Military are mentioned, they're typically talked about in either a playful manner (in line with certain characters' POV's) or they're given reverence. Whether you're a Military brat, an army wife, or a member of the US Military yourself, you won't be disappointed with Crimson Tide's depiction of the US Armed Forces; it's critical while also respectful of the Military as a whole. Denzel, Hunter and America are excellent name choices to start with - build your list from there!
