It was received with critical acclaim and has gone on to receive a number of accolades, such as the Best Television Series – Drama award at the 2011 and 2012 Golden Globe Awards and the Best Outstanding Drama Series at the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards.

Homeland Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Naming your dog can both be an exciting and daunting task. While some take this responsibility for granted, most dog owners know that they have to choose a name that suits their four-legged friend well. Generally, there are some aspects to take into account when brainstorming for a name for your pooch. Dog experts suggest that a name should be only one to two syllables long because canines are only able to remember short words. Another recommendation would be to avoid names that sound like commands that you use regularly. For example, the name “Kit”, which rhymes with the command “sit”, or the name “Ray”, which sounds a lot like the command “stay”, are not ideal because they could be confusing for your dog.

If you are a Homeland fanatic and would like to base your dog’s name on the hit television series, there are loads of ideas from the show that you can use. Throughout the series’ seven seasons (thus far), there have been numerous remarkable personalities that have been featured. Some of the most notable characters from Homeland are Carrie Mathison, Saul Berenson and Peter Quinn. You could also draw inspiration from the name of the actors and actresses playing these roles. For example, if you have a female pooch, you can name her after actress Claire Danes.
