Introduction

Need for Speed is a popular series of racing games that first debuted in the mid-1990s. Most of the games in the series allow players to participate in illegal street races for the chance to earn money, cars, and fame. In 2014, DreamWorks Pictures teamed up with Electronic Arts to produce a live-action Need for Speed film. Aaron Paul starred in the Need for Speed movie, playing a character who worked as a mechanic during the day and participated in street races at night. Hot Wheels has also created a myriad of toy cars inspired by the Need for Speed brand.

Need for Speed Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The Need for Speed franchise has never been character or story driven, despite the attempts of the more recent entries in the series. The games work best when they allow players to role-play as hotshot drag racers and stunt drivers. It's very telling that most of the games in the series don't even have main characters. During this segment of our articles, we usually suggest that readers name their pets after characters or concepts from the topic at hand. While there have been a few named protagonists and antagonists in the Need for Speed franchise, the real stars of the show have always been the cars that players can obtain and use to win races. So if you're a Need for Speed fan or a car enthusiast in general, we recommend naming your dog after your favorite brand of vehicle or car manufacturer. 

We've made a list of dog names inspired by cars featured in the Need for Speed series down below. We've also included a few names based on characters from the 2014 live-action film for all the Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper fans. Lastly, we've added a slew of titles that pay homage to famous racers and car industry tycoons.
