Introduction

Inspector Gadget has created fans throughout many generations since its inception in the original 1983 animated series. Since then, it has become a popular franchise, spawning other series, movies and even video games. Though not all aspects of its recreations were equally popular, the franchise’s bumbling yet lovable main character and his sidekicks (as well as the future protagonists who followed in his footsteps) have carved out a niche of their own, cementing their place in American culture. With it has come a fantastic cast of characters who provide the perfect fodder for fans to use to name their similarly fantastic furballs.

Inspector Gadget Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When trying to come up with an appropriate Inspector Gadget inspired dog name, the easiest way to start is one of two ways: isolating characters from your favorite installment of the franchise or outlining your dog’s main or most notable characteristics and matching them up with one of the franchise’s many characters. 

For instance, if your dog has good intentions but regularly messes up whatever they’re attempting to do, then Gadget would be a perfect fit. If your dog is a faithful and helpful sidekick, then maybe Penny, Fidget, Digit or Brain would more suitable. If your dog tends to foil your plans, such as having a quiet dinner, or tends to play too hard, then the name Dr. Claw or any one of his timeless M.A.D. agents would certainly be suitable. If you just want a goofy dog-themed name taken from one of the franchise’s many iterations, the names Fang, Barker and McKibble would all be solid choices. 

There are plenty of ways you can go about it, from isolating characters only found in the original series to matching your dog up with characters who share similar quirks, looks, or personality, so get your brain-propeller started and go-go-gadget namers!
