Introduction

Galaga was a video game that arcade crawlers have known since 1981. It has been referenced in countless television shows and movies since then. It is so popular that the Chitauri spaceship in Marvel: The Avengers is shaped like the spaceships from the game. The shout out from Tony Stark is, in retrospect, foreshadowing as the aliens come into the city in much the same way as those from the game Galaga. So when you are using a Galaga inspired name, you should choose a strong name that is out of this world.

Galaga Dog Name Considerations

When choosing Galaga themed names you have to consider what Galaga is: an old-school video game about bugs in space. So you will look to science, science fiction, and video game characters and settings. This can be fun and rewarding and a huge throwback to your childhood. Classic arcade games like Street Fighter had an amazing and colorful cast of characters and Mario is a first generation game from Nintendo. Pulling inspiration from a lot of sources can be a fun time. You can reminisce about the time that Pluto was a planet or joke about how easy it used to be to get infinite lives on console games. The sky's the limit.

While they are not explored here, there are bug related movies turned to video games that you would not have to shield your children from. Sit them down with A Bug's Life or Bee Movie and let them choose their own bug name, or see how they would fare against the ghosts of Ms. Pacman. Choosing the dog's name should be a family affair. Get everyone involved and when in doubt, put a bunch in a hat and pull one out.
