Introduction

Film aficionados of the Indiana Jones franchise vary from the casual lover of Indy's quirks to the fan who can recite the lines word-for-word.  Whatever the level of enjoyment, every fan knows the famous line, "the dog's name was Indiana," spoke by Sean Connery to Harrison Ford in the third installment of the franchise.  This single line and fact has inspired many people to adopt the Indiana Jones franchise theme as inspiration for naming their new puppy or dog.  The Indiana Jones theme is slightly limited in its name choices but any creative fan who loves the character, locations, and adventures is sure to find a meaningful name for their beloved pooch.

Indiana Jones Dog Name Considerations

It would seem male dogs have the advantage in this category, though creative Indiana Jones fans will find some inspirational names for their female dogs as well.  The sad reason for the difficulty in giving a female dog an Indiana Jones-inspired name is simply because women are not as prevalent in the franchise.  Granted, Marion Ravenwood from the first and last installment is no helpless damsel in distress, and she has inspired a few female dog names.  She is a strong, no fuss, character who can take care of herself and saves Indy's hide a time or two.  Dogs bearing her name include Raven or Ravenwood as well as Marion.  Other considerations for Indiana Jones-inspired names are the locations for Indy's adventures or the ancient relics he is after.  In the first film, Indiana Jones is after Fortune and Glory, two names that are fitting for an adopted duo of dogs.  Indiana also travels to places such as India, Jordan, Egypt, and Peru.  As a young man, Indy also adventures as an Eagle Scout in the southwest of the United States in states such as Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona.  It is during this time that Indy acquires his famous Fedora hat while restoring the Cross of Coronado from treasure hunters.
