Locke & Key is a comic book series created by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez. Produced by IDW Publishing, Locke & Key isn't a regular series by any stretch of the imagination; the story doesn't follow a linear chronology, the information given by the series' characters and narrators is unreliable at best, and nothing is what it seems on the surface. Locke & Key is a horror story through and through, with each issue growing more deranged and disturbed than the issue before it. There have been numerous attempts to adapt Locke & Key into a live-action television series. Netflix is the most recent company slated to adapt the series, with the first season allegedly airing sometime in 2019.

Locke & Key Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Locke & Key is undoubtedly a very horrifying series that's guaranteed to chill your bones and keep you up at night. But the series is also very character driven and features a compelling, dramatic centered around the Locke family. Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode Locke are the closest the series has to main characters. Despite being a high schooler, a tween, and a young child respectively, the Locke Children are very perceptive protagonists. You'll see them stumble and fall numerous times throughout the series, but that will only make you root for them more. Should any of the Locke Children resonate with you, consider naming your dog after one of them to pay homage. 

Speaking of paying homage, Locke & Key has tons of winks and nods to other horror stories and authors; the series namedrops HP Lovecraft within its first issue, to give you a sense of perspective. It's no surprise that Locke & Key pays tribute to so many different horror stories considering Joe Hill's backstory. You see, Joe Hill is the pen name of Joseph Hillstrom King - the oldest child of Stephen and Tabitha King. But Hill has a very distinct writing style that shines through in Locke & Key. If you're a fan of Stephen King, we encourage you to give Locke & Key a try - not to compare the works of father and son, but to appreciate how different and unique their styles are from one another. After you've done that, compare characters to quirky traits you see in your dog and a name may pop out at you.
