Introduction

Hip-hop is a genre of music that started in the United States during the 1970s. Developed by inner-city African-Americans, this type of music consists of rapping (rhyming speech that is usually chanted) accompanied by rhythmic beats. Since its inception, hip-hop has become a huge part of American culture and paved the way for rappers to succeed in the music industry. This is why when Empire premiered on January 7, 2015, it became an instant hit in the country. This musical-drama series focuses on the fictional Empire Entertainment, a hip-hop and entertainment corporation, and the drama that unfolds between the members of the Lyon family.

Empire Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When you purchase or adopt a puppy, one of the first obligations that you have to take on is a name. This process may appear to be an easy one but in reality, it is one that should be well thought-out. You need to take your time and pick an appropriate name that will go well with your new furbaby. Most dog parents look to their favorite pop culture works for name inspiration, whether it is their favorite show, artist, writer or the like. For fans of the hit TV show Empire, there are a couple of name ideas to choose from.

To pick the perfect Empire-inspired dog name, you have to assess what it is that you are looking for in a name. Do you simply want to name your pooch after the character you like the most? If so, then you can just pick a name out of any of the characters of the show. You may also consider the actors or actresses involved with the show. For instance, if you have a female dog and are a huge Taraji Henson fan, then you can name your furbaby after the star. You may also consider the traits of your pooch. Do you have a courageous dog? If the answer is yes, then you may name them “Lyon”; not only does it signify bravery (from the animal), it also pays homage to the Lyon family from the show.
