Introduction

Many moons ago, at an early 1990's comic convention, a comic artist by the name of Mike Mignola was struck with an irresistible urge to draw on a piece of paper. Mr. Mignola drew a large, horned demonic character with a vulture perched on his shoulder and a large belt fastened around his waist. The belt itself was adorned with numerous occult items such as skulls and chains. Inscribed, in arcane letters, on the center of the belt was two words; "Hell Boy." At the time, Mr. Mignola had no plans to develop the character into the snarky, lovable icon that he would eventually become. But when he was struck with the urge to start a creator-owned comic series, Mr. Mignola revisited and revamped the concept he created so that could give readers one Hell of a hero.

Hellboy Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Once upon a time, Hellboy used to be a fairly obscure comic series that was only read by the most esoteric of comic fans. Thanks in large part to the two films directed by the Oscar Winning filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro, the Hellboy universe has gained a great deal of much needed exposure over the years. These days, millions of people know of the character and his infamously wry sense of humor. It's actually that, Hellboy's ginormous Right Hand of Doom, and his defiantly heroic nature that standout as the character's most defining traits. If you're a big fan of characters with "never say die" attitudes and heaps of witty one liners, then you'll love Hellboy and the other members of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense.

A myriad of figures from pantheons and mythological indexes the world over also feature in the Hellboy series as both major and minor characters. By his own admission, Mike Mignola is something of a history and mythology buff. Combine that love for history and world myth with a deep admiration for pulp storytelling and you get Hellboy. If you share some of Mr. Mignola's interests, then you may want to consider naming your dog after a Hellboy character - both to pay homage to the series and to potentially pay homage to world mythology.
