Introduction

Off the top of our heads, most of us can probably name more than 10 superheroes at a moment's notice. But how many supervillains can you name at the drop of a hat? Not many, we're guessing; you could probably try to name villains from both Marvel's and DC Comics' ever-growing cast of characters and still not even come close to the double digits. We're willing to bet, however, that one of the first villains you'd name would be Otto Octavius - best known to all as the Spider-Man foe Doctor Octopus, aka Doc Ock. Surpassed by perhaps only the Green Goblin and Venom, Doctor Octopus is one of the most famous supervillains in all of comic book history. He's also a very complex character who isn't always fighting against Spider-Man. Fans of Doc Ock are sure to find the perfect dog name here!

Doctor Octopus Inspired Dog Name Considerations

One of the top reasons to give your dog a Doctor Octopus inspired name would probably be the reason you even know about his existence in the first place: you're a massive Spider-Man fan and you can name every member of the Sinister Six faster than you could name the 27th President of the United States. And hey, we're not judging - Spider-Man's Rogues' Gallery is among the most well known ever. Doc Ock has worked very hard over the decades to stand out as a foe who is not just as strong as Spider-Man but one who is also as cunning and intellectually inclined as the Webslinger. But as we mentioned before, Doc Ock is a very complex character who's grown and evolved over the years - that last statement having a number of different implications. 

While Doctor Octopus may have initially just shared a purely antagonistic relationship with Spider-Man, he's been fleshed out by numerous writers to the point of being a more three dimensional being; Doc Ock been shown to be a very self-conscious man who actually does care for the well being of others and has even developed a more mutually respectful relationship with Spider-Man. He's even acted in the name of Justice - in ever increasing frequency - over the decades. If you're a fan of multilayered characters, flaws and all, then you may find yourself a huge fan of Doctor Octopus. When considering a dog name, look to your pup's traits and standout characteristics. Then, match them to a Doctor Octopus related name. For instance, if your dog is always scheming for fun, call them Planner. Songbird is a fitting name for a dog that likes to howl and make their presence known.
