Introduction

It's probably safe to assume that we all know who the Justice League is, but we here at Wag! wonder if all of our readers are aware of the fact that they aren't the DC Universe's only superhero team with the words "Justice" and "League" in their title? In fact, there are actually Justice League teams that are specifically dedicated to protecting specific cities and countries around the globe. The acronym JLA references the most famous group that fits our description - the Justice League of America. In truth, the team's name is slightly misleading; the members of the JLA won't hesitate to lend a helping hand to anyone, anywhere, any time.

JLA Inspired Dog Name Considerations

If you are a DC Comics fan, then you've got about as many reasons to give your dog a JLA inspired name as there are members of the League; the team consists of most of DC's heavy hitters like Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman as well as a number of less experienced but promising new heroes. You could name your dog after a particular Leaguer that resonates with you based on their personality or powers - the choice is entirely yours. If you do name your dog after a JLA member, chances are other comic fans will immediately get the reference if they catch wind of your pet's new moniker. 

The comic series that the JLA first debuted in can also be viewed as something of a time capsule for the late 1990s and early 2000s. The Dark Age of comic books was nearing its end, Superman had just been revived after previously being slain by Doomsday (even still rocking a mullet at this point,) and more upbeat stories were starting to make a comeback. The 126 issue JLA series that ran from January 1997 to April 2006 is evident of such - the stories featured within the JLA comics are all mostly upbeat and inspiring. If you read enough of these books and find yourself moved by them, you've just gained another reason to consider giving your dog a JLA inspired name.

For instance, do you have a tiny pup? Shrink would be an ideal name. Is your dog constantly on the lookout for a chase? Tag them with Huntress!
