Introduction

The continuation of one of the foremost Shōnen manga franchises of all time, Dragon Ball Z took western viewers by storm and became a huge hit in many parts of Europe, North America, and South America back in its heyday, having produced incredibly well received anime adaptations and breeding generations of die-hard DBZ fans. Often credited as a major contributor to anime's growing success in the west, DBZ is held in high regard by fans of quality action shows, stunning feats of animation, and fantastic voice over work and sound design. Many DBZ fans have named their children after their favorite Dragon Ball Z characters, so naming your dog after the likes of Goku, Vegeta, or Gohan is just another way to pay homage to this iconic, ground breaking anime.

Dragon Ball Z Dog Name Considerations

Naming your pet after a DBZ character could be seen as a way to express the magnitude said character impacted you; fans of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z have seen Goku, Bulma, Krillin, and Yamcha grow from young, happy-go-lucky adventurers into more mature and more capable warriors and friends in their own right. Fans of the legendary anime might also want to name their dog after a particular character for what they stand for; Goku is a kind and mighty warrior who seeks justice and a good fight, Vegeta is a regal figure who chides weakness and seeks perfection, and Gohan is a rising star seeking a way to balance his status as a half Saiyan, half human hybrid. 

Most DBZ characters' names have meaning but those meanings are quite humorous when you break them down; the name Goku is a reference to the Chinese Monkey King, Sun Wukong, but his Saiyan name Kakarot is simply a play on the word "carrot". Vegeta's name, on the other hand, has no deeper meaning than to serve as a play on the term "vegetable" and Piccolo is taken straight from the instrument. DBZ creator Akira Toriyama values humor above all else, so it's no surprise many DBZ characters have names with comedic origins.
