Introduction

Created by Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist tells the story of two brothers who have lost their mother, and parts of themselves, to an Alchemical experiment gone wrong. For as beautiful as the art direction of the series is, and as intricate as the battles can be, the story of FMA, and the themes explored therein, are what have set the series apart from other anime and has made it one of the most popular and critically lauded pieces of Japanese fiction in contemporary history. With its slew of complex characters, intricate themes, and engrossing storytelling, FMA aimed to do more than just entertain fans; it aimed to put fans through the ringer and have them emerge with fullmetal hearts.

Fullmetal Alchemist Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The characters from the Fullmetal Alchemist series are among some of the most complex and layered in all of fiction, let alone anime and naming your dog after them could be a way of expressing solidarity with their ideals or beliefs. Series fan favorite Roy Mustang believes in the idea of a government set in place to serve, protect, and help people, so naming your dog Roy or Mustang could be a way to express your solidarity with that ideal. By the series' end, Edward and Alphonse come to champion a a belief that compels people to pay kindness forward, so that one act of kindness might multiply into two acts and so on. This series is heavy on philosophy and belief, so try to find the core values of the characters who interest you most and see which who resonates with you the most. 

Conversely, if not somewhat controversially, you could name your dog after whichever character you feel has the coolest abilities. The series goes to great lengths to chide the idea of valuing power over people, but there are quite a few characters with exceptionally unique talents. Roy Mustang is equally known for his impressive flame alchemy as he is for his leadership skills, and both the Elric brothers are prodigious Alchemists who use their abilities in very innovating ways. Whichever reason you choose, FMA is host to a large selection of great characters to consider naming your dog after.
