Introduction

The name Doraemon may not ring a bell for many of our western readers but a majority of our eastern readers know that we're talking about one of the most popular and enduring children's franchises in all of Japan! Created all the way back in 1969 by a Japanese writer/artist duo, the Doraemon franchise soared to the heights of popularity throughout the 1970's. The series is all about a young boy whose visited by a robotic cat from the future (the titular Doraemon himself). Doraemon's impact on Japanese culture and society is comparable to Sesame Street's impact on American culture - there probably isn't a single person from the Land of the Rising Sun that doesn't know who Doraemon is!

Doraemon Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Well, if you're a reader who grew up watching Doraemon as a young child, then he's probably got a soft spot in your heart. There have been numerous versions of Doreamon since he made his debut in his self titled manga back in 1969, just like how there have been numerous iterations of Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry over the decades. This means that different generations of people have all grown up with their own version of the Doraemon series. So whether you're a younger reader who grew up with the 2005 anime or you've been around the block and are a fan of the original material, naming your dog after a Doraemon character is a great way to give yourself an ever-present reminder of simpler times.

Even if you didn't grow up watching or reading Doraemon, you've undoubtedly seen the "super-sized, gizmo-ized, gadget cat" around if you're a fan of anime. After all, the robotic cat was deemed Japan's anime ambassador back in 2008 by Japan's very own Foreign Ministry. References to the Doraemon series have also been made via paintings on trains, statues, and an uncountable amount of merchandise. Considering that Doraemon is the longest running anime series, it's also not wrong to suggest that the show has influenced many other popular anime shows - even Shonen Battle Anime like DBZ or One Piece!
