Introduction

Days of our Lives (sometimes nicknamed "DOOL" or "Days") is perhaps the longest running soap opera in all of daytime television history. In fact, its first air date was November 8, 1965. Days features the lives of several prominent families in the town of Salem, a town in Midwestern America. The Bradys and the Hortons are the protagonist families, while the DiMera and the Kiriakis families serve as their villainous foils. The Bradys and Hortons embody true American values - family, faith, and friendship. The Dimeras and Kiriakis families are rather devious, and they keep things very interesting for the Salem population. A long-time fan of the show might honor the soap kings and queens by bestowing a Days of Our Lives-inspired name on their pooch, and said fan will have more than enough names and personalities to match with that of their dog.

Days of Our Lives Inspired Dog Name Considerations

What might inspire a new dog owner to choose a name that honors a love of this iconic soap opera? Should certain breeds be considered more apt for a DOOL-inspired name compared to other breeds? First, a general love of the show is often reason enough to choose a name that honors a favorite character from the fifty-year-old show. Many modern fans grew up watching the show with their grandmothers, and, for this reason, fans today are often more loyal to the show regardless of character changes or lagging story lines. Second, a Days of Our Lives name will fit any breed, size, or gender of pooch. However, certain characteristics in your pup's personality may remind you of certain show characters. 

If you have a male and female pair of dogs, you may entertain the notion of naming your pups after one of the "power couples" of the successful soap. An adventurous pair of Labrador Retrievers might be christened "Bo and Hope." This power couple spent some time living on a houseboat, and Labradors are known for their love of water, so the  name could fit very well. 

Another "power couple" name that might fit a pair of pups is "Patch and Kayla." Steve "Patch" Johnson and his physician wife, Kayla are one of the most long-lived couples. Patch might fit a pup with a spotted coat; his loving, caring mate would make a great Kayla. 

A devious pup might earn the name Victor, as in Victor Kiriakis, long-time DOOL villain. Of course, the iconic Stefano DiMera, also known as "The Phoenix," might fix an Italian Greyhound (The DiMera family is of Italian origin). Whatever Days moniker you choose for your pup, you will find many options that fit a variety of breeds and puppy personalities.
