Introduction

When it comes to British television programs, there is probably no show more popular and enduring than Doctor Who. Produced by BBC since 1963, Doctor Who is a science-fiction show that is centered on the adventures of a Time Lord known only as “The Doctor”. Hailing from the planet of Gallifrey, the Doctor uses a time-traveling spacecraft, known as the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space), to explore the universe. Since its inception until today, Doctor Who has become a major part of British popular culture. Furthermore, it has received a cult following in other parts of the world.

Doctor Who Dog Name Considerations

When choosing a name for your new dog, you might get swamped by the different options that you have. Dog owners name their beloved furbabies after just about anything – from descriptive names to pop culture references. For fans of the British program Doctor Who, choosing a name related to the show may seem like a good idea. Luckily, the show offers a lot of name options to pick from.

The most straightforward way to choose a Doctor Who-related name is through the characters in the show. Since the show has been running since 1963, there are literally loads of characters that can be used as inspiration for a name for your dog. You may even name your pooch after the actors or actresses who portrayed the show’s characters. You can also use the name of different objects that are central to the show. For instance, you can pick the name “Gallifrey”, which refers to the planet where The Doctor hails from, for your dog.

One thing that you have to remember, however, is that dog names should be kept short and easy to learn and recall. Generally, dogs are only capable of remembering words and names with one to two syllables. Thus, it is in your dog’s best interest if the name you eventually pick is easy enough for them to remember.
