Introduction

First taking life in the form of a long-running American television series, the Mission: Impossible franchise has been experiencing worldwide success as a series of Action Spy Films that pit series protagonist Ethan Hunt against despots, dictators, terrorists, and traitors on a regular basis. Just about each film in the franchise has been helmed by a different director, giving each installment a distinct feel and style; the first film, simply titled Mission: Impossible, was directed by Scarface and Carrie director Brian de Palma, while the likes of John Woo, J.J. Abrams, and Brad Bird have directed the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th installments of the series respectively. Ghost Protocol and Fallout will both be directed by Christopher McQuarrie, marking the first time a director has led more than one Mission Impossible film.

Mission Impossible Dog Names In Pop Culture

Mission Impossible Dog Name Considerations

Well, just about every element of the franchise has become iconic and instantly recognizable at this point; Tom Cruise's name has become synonymous not only with Ethan Hunt's but with the Mission: Impossible franchise as a whole. The series' theme song, which was originally composed by Lalo Schifrin before being updated and modified by the likes of Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, and Michael Giacchino, is one of the most iconic pieces of music ever created; it's right up there with the legendary scores John Williams created for Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Superman. And of course, the exhilarating "fuse" title sequences each film starts with have also become deeply ingrained in cinematic history and pop culture as a whole. 

It's for the reasons listed above, as well as just being a big fan of great action/spy movies that you should consider naming your dog after a character from the Mission Impossible series. You could always name your dog Ethan or Hunter if you're a big fan of the film series and its daring protagonist. If you're a big fan of the TV series the films are based on, on the other hand, you could always name your dog after Dan Briggs or even Jim Phelps, who was originally a heroic character in the show.
