Law & Order Dog Name Considerations

After being on air for more than two decades, the Law & Order franchise has no shortage of memorable characters, each who has distinct personalities and compelling backstories. Many of those can be found among the main cast; the police officers and district attorneys who the series primarily follows are among some of television's most well known and memorable characters. Then there are the victims who the police have worked to protect throughout the series; average everyday citizens who are blindsided by the machinations of others. Many of these victims are portrayed by great character actors who make the most of their brief yet poignant appearances on the show. Lastly, there are the perpetrators; those accused of committing heinous crimes, causing them to be at odds with the NYPD. Just like the victims, the perps are often portrayed by character actors and are sometimes even portrayed by famous guest stars from the music or movie industries.

We know that those are a lot of characters to potentially name your dog after, so to help narrow down your choices, we highly recommend that you think about naming your dog after a character on the show whose distinct personality mirrors your dog's own mindset.
