Introduction

Ender’s Game is an enduring and thought-provoking novel written by Orson Scott Card and published in 1985. It is a futuristic tale about a brilliant young boy named Andrew Wiggin, born third in a society where more than two children was generally outlawed. A species of alien with a hive mind have invaded the Earth two times and to prepare for future invasions, children who show promise are often trained for battle at a very young age. Ender’s journey through Battle School and beyond touches on subjects such as deception, loyalty, and compassion from the perspective of an exceptional child in an intolerable situation. For many readers, this book has had a lasting effect, and with the release of the movie starring Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin, even more people are being exposed to this provocative story.

Ender's Game Name Considerations

 

A good dog name should be something easy to say for both you and for anyone else in your household, a name that your individual dog responds well to, and a name that means something to you. For many of us, the books we read, books like the Ender’s Saga series; Ender’s Game, Speaker of the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind, mean a great deal to us and can provide a rich source of names for our beloved pets. While some names are more typically masculine, such as Andrew, or feminine, such as Valentine, don’t feel tied down to just one section of the list. Andrew can become Andi if you prefer and Valentine could be Valentino, while other names like Fleet, Dragon, or Launchie could be perfect for either male or female dogs. While the characters in the book and movie provide excellent names on their own, such as Bean, for your tiny dog that gets all the tricks, Valentine for that super, sweet canine with an unstoppable willpower, or Mazer for your dog who never stops pushing boundaries, there are quite a few other names that this Hugo and Nebula award-winning novel can inspire. The canine companion that always has your back might just be your Jeesh, the dog that never touches the ground could go by the name Zero-G, and the animal that destroys everything it touches just might end up with the moniker Dr. Device.
