Introduction

John Carter of Mars is often cited as being the first piece of Sci-Fi in contemporary fiction. There were thousands of other Sci-Fi stories out there by the time John Carter was written but it does somewhat illustrate John Carter's importance to literature, entertainment, academia, and even economics. John Carter is that series; while it may not be the first Sci-Fi story, it's certainly one of the most influential. Franchises like Star Wars, Star Trek, Ender's Game, and Avatar owe John Carter for paving their way. John Carter is so prevalent that entertainment juggernaut Disney lost millions doing everything they could to make a blockbuster hit out of the series, something they wouldn't have attempted unless they were almost positive the source material could back them up.

John Carter Inspired Dog Name Considerations

We weren't hyperbolizing when we said that John Carter was a really influential series - despite coming out all the way in 1912, the series has still remained relevant in the realm of Sci-Fi. John Carter's influence even has spread outside of the Sci-Fi genre. You know how Superman has incredible powers because his physiology was adapted to help him survive on an alien planet? So was John Carter's, only John was a soldier from Earth who was empowered by Mars' low gravity. Many of your favorite comics, movies, TV shows, games, and books that fall within the realm of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or Speculative Fiction have likely been influenced by John Carter in some way or another allowing for a wide variety of dog name suggestions.

Another reason John Carter is so influential - as well as another reason to consider giving your dog a John Carter inspired name - is the man who wrote it; Edgar Rice Burroughs. That name ought to ring a bell for anyone who's been through the American Public Education system. But if it didn't, how about the name Tarzan? Yes, Tarzan, the King of the Jungle. Guess who came up with him? That's right - Tarzan and John Carter are both creations of the 20th-century author. Grab a pen and paper and consider monikers like Ozara, Carthoris, Llana and Dotar as name possibilities for your new addition.
