Introduction

Inuyasha, a Japanese manga series also done as an anime, is a popular show that launched back in November of 1996 and concluded in 2008! It begins with following Kagome Higurashi, a fifteen-year-old girl from Tokyo who falls into a well in her family’s shrine and magically gets transported five hundred years back in time to the Sengoku period. There, she meets Inuyasha, half human, half dog-demon, also known as yokai. Inuyasha joins forces with the girl and helps look for the shards of the Jewel of Four Souls. It’s particularly interesting that Inuyasha has pointy silver Akita ears on the top of his head, because of his heritage. So, basically, he is a perfect topic for today!

Inuyasha Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Inuyasha is one of those anime and manga series that features a lot of characters, all of whom are well-developed and have some sort of a back story you can find interesting and compelling. If you are a fan, you know that it can be quite hard to choose only ONE among the hundreds that inspire you, but this can also be a great way to convince your girlfriend, boyfriend, sibling, or best friend to watch your favorite anime with you and help you pick the name. It’s for a good cause after all so they cannot say no, right?

So, if you feel inspired, you've got your popcorn or ramen ready, pen and paper in hand and your lovely new pup in your lap, time to get to naming! You can start with Inuyasha, after the Dog Demon, main protagonist, and a cross between a demon and a human who holds the Black Pearl in his right eye. Another option is to name your princess after Kagome Higurashi, a girl born with Shinkon no Tama, otherwise known as the Jewel of Four Souls inside her, who pulled back in time by 500 years when she fell in a well and met Inuyasha.
