Introduction

For this Name Guide, we're kicking it old school and taking a long trip down memory lane - a trip that will take us all the way back to the jolly old year of 1987. 1987 was quite an interesting year in hindsight; the Dominion of Fiji would declare its independence and become a Republic, Britain would open their elite Order of the Garter up to women for the first time, and Ronald Reagan would give a rousing speech at the Berlin Wall by the year's end. Nintendo would also release Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! near the end of that year as well - a game that would have a long standing legacy for many years to come.

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! Dog Name Considerations

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! - eventually just becoming Punch-Out!! after licenses began expiring and ownership rights started becoming a matter of contention - is one of those games that's got a special place in the hearts of any 80's kids; if a person was old enough to watch the original Transformers and G.I. Joe shows when they first aired, they were likely playing Punch-Out!! when it was first released during the 4th quarter of 1987. For a lot of 80's kids, just thinking about all the time they spent playing or watching other people play, Punch-Out!! will bring back memories of the good old days - when things were much simpler and easier than they are now. For the sake of nostalgia alone, many 80's kids will likely consider giving their pet a Punch-Out!! name. 

Punch-Out!! may still be significant for folks who weren't born, or didn't grow up, in the 1980's but for a drastically different reason than nostalgia. You see, Punch-Out!! has inspired a smorgasbord of jokes, references, and memes that have been pervasive in pop culture since the game's initial release. Everything from shows like Family Guy to news anchormen and women have referenced the iconic game in one form or another. For that reason alone, you may also want to consider giving your dog a Punch-Out!! name.
