Introduction

The Japanese word "Hetalia" roughly translates to "pathetically cute." That's exactly how North Italy, Germany, Japan, and pretty much all of the countries involved in World War II are portrayed in Hidekaz Himaruya's manga turned anime series - Hetalia: Axis Powers. In the series, the members of the Axis and the Allies are represented by human avatars with wild, over the top personalities. The manga and show mainly center around North Italy - who is depicted as an airheaded but nonetheless, well-intentioned young man. The series doesn't really have an overarching plot as it's episodic in nature and has the vibe of a sitcom; the members of the Axis and the Allies find themselves in crazy scenarios and comedy is drawn from their explosive interactions.

Hetalia Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Hetalia: Axis Powers takes one of the darkest, bloodiest periods of human history and looks at it from a comedic, satirical perspective. The members of the Axis are depicted as haughty, emotional young men who nonetheless, are loyal to one another and true patriots. The Allies are, in turn, depicted in a morally grey light, with America and Britain having personalities that are only as large as their hearts. In general, Hetalia makes light of the countries involved in WW II as a means of more or less coping with the Great War; why would nations from around the world engage in a global conflict that resulted in the loss of millions of lives? Because they were all led by men whose passions and patriotism guided their decisions.

Another reason one might name their dog after Hetalia could be that they're really into cultures from around the globe - though, the series initially focuses on a select few nations, Hetalia's cast grows to encompass places like Ancient Egypt and the Holy Roman Empire. Though no character is a spot on representation of the living inhabitants of their real-world counterparts, it can still be fun to hear these characters reference aspects of their cultures and parts of their histories. You might even learn a thing or two about a nation that you weren't all that familiar with beforehand.
