Gotham Inspired Dog Name Considerations

There is a lot of inspiration to be taken from the TV show, Gotham when considering a name for your dog.  This is a very important task, as you want a forever name that suits your pooch.  You can choose a name based on your dog’s temperament, for instance, if your pooch has a very loyal and caring nature, you may choose a name inspired by Bruce Wayne's Butler, like Alfred or Penny.  An unpredictable dog would possibly suit Bruce or Ivy.  If your dog is nimble and athletic, you might choose a name like Tigress or Selina.  For the large and strong dog, you could consider a name like Butch, Grundy or Goldie, inspired by Cyrus Gold, Butch, or Solomon Grundy.  Color inspiration could again be Goldie for a cream colored coat, or Knight for a dark colored coat. Maybe you have a clever pooch that needs to keep his mind active, then you might consider the name, Riddler. 

Remember, when choosing a name, take your time and write down a few that you like.  Ask yourself, what suits my companion?  What name does he or she suit?  What does he or she look like? What is their temperament like?  Have a read through the top 30 male and female name lists below, and see if Gotham inspires you!
