Introduction

Founded by Fusajiro Yamauchi on September 23, 1889, Nintendo initially started out as a card company who made simple, yet fun family games that were aimed at young children. The company continued to focus on this business model for more than 60 years before finally turning their attention to the burgeoning electronic gaming market of the late 1970's and early 1980's, with the release of their Game & Watch series of handheld games. Since then, Nintendo has gone on to become one of the world's foremost leaders in terms of electronic entertainment, as the company has produced dozens of iconic gaming franchises which, in turn, are the homes of some of gaming's most popular and beloved characters.

Nintendo Character Dog Name Considerations

When it comes to the sheer amount of memorable gaming titles Nintendo has produced over the years, the Japanese based electronic entertainment company is virtually unmatched in this regard; Nintendo is the company behind such world renowned titles as the Super Mario Bros. Series, the Legend of Zelda series, Pokemon, Fire Emblem, Donkey Kong, Animal Crossing, the Super Smash Bros. franchise, and many, many more. It's often been said that one has to choose to focus on either quality or quantity in order to find success as a business, but Nintendo has somehow been able to do both for more than half of a century. They've been able to consistently produce high quality games, at a large volume, which feature worlds and characters that people have genuinely come to love while also leading the pack in terms of innovation and creativity in the electronic gaming market. 

Why give your dog a name based off of a Nintendo character? Because chances are that you, or someone you know, are already very well acquainted with a character or gaming franchise from Nintendo's massive stable; everyone and their mother has heard of Pikachu and friends (especially thanks to the surge of popularity that Pokemon GO experienced in 2017) and Super Mario has appeared in movies and TV shows in addition to the multitude of enormously popular games he's starred in. The characters from Nintendo's line up are among some of the most enduring and respected characters in contemporary pop culture, so consider naming your dog after them if you'd to give your pet a virtually timeless name.
