District 9 Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Almost any dog can suit a name that comes from a movie such as District 9. However, if your dog has insect-like tendencies, that will help the connection! Aside from having a dog that looks like an insect, which is most likely impossible, there are other things to consider.

Your dog’s gender, for example, plays a part. Many members of the cast and crew in District 9 were male. If you are going to name your dog after leading characters, make sure the name is gender specific. For example, Jason who played the role of Christopher is a name better suited to a male dog. Sandra, Wilkus’s mother, is also a better name for a female dog.

The meaning of the name and how it connects to your dog may also factor in the decision-making process for District 9 inspired dog names. Wilkus, for example, is mild-mannered. If your dog is too, then such a name will be perfect.

If your dog is a bit silly, a name like Obesandjo might be fitting. Obesandjo thought that eating alien body parts would enable him to use their weapons. As you can see, you will need to set aside a lot of time for going over each part of the naming process.
