Introduction

In William Golding's post-World War II dystopia, a group of boys learns what it means to live in a world without adults or rules. What transpires is a group of kids who attempt to create their own society, and, even though they strove to better their new world, they ended up emulating the negative behavior of the adults they criticized. Golding's novel, Lord of the Flies, is a lesson in raw human impulses and our basic nature. Without prompting, we humans tend to group ourselves and we also create a hierarchy of leaders and followers. The animal world is much like this, and canines especially tend to fall into this mode of behavior.

Lord of the Flies Dog Name Considerations

When a plane carrying young male students crashes on a remote island, life and society as these children knew it no longer exists. Many of the children seem to magically appear from the wreckage, and most of the are uninjured. The first character that readers meet is a young boy who is asthmatic, overweight, and wearing glasses. Piggy, as we learn is his nickname, is very intelligent, and he wants nothing more than to find other survivors and work together peacefully until they are rescued. Ralph is the second character to whom the reader is introduced, and together, they devise a method of organization which will hopefully benefit them and any other survivors. A third character, Jack, will serve to be an antagonist, as he cannot follow procedure and attempts to take over leadership of the surviving boys. 

Although there are no dog breeds mentioned in the novel, we can relate the behavior of the boys to that of a pack of dogs. Going back to the ancestors of our domesticated dogs, the wolf pack established one leader - an Alpha, usually a male - and the other dogs fell in line behind him. Jack is reminiscent of a young male who wishes to challenge an older Alpha male in the wolf pack. Therefore, any dog breed would be suited to a name from William Golding's Lord of the Flies. You could consider personality and choose a character that reminds you of your pup or has traits that you would like to instill in your new furry addition.
