Pearl Harbor Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Many details shaped the fateful day when Pearl Harbor was raided. If you are considering a name for your dog to commemorate the event, there are many notable names associated with the development. At the time of the attack,  Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the President of the United States. The Commander-in-Chief of the United States Naval Fleet was Husband E. Kimmel. Both men were crucial figures in determining the response of the United States to the attack and making the decision to enter World War II on the Pacific Front.  

If you find Japanese history fascinating, then you may want to consider naming your pooch after some of the key figures from that pivotal day. Hirohito was the Emperor of Japan at the time of the Pearl Harbor Attack. He ordered the onslaught against the U.S. Naval Fleet. Mitsuo led the strike. He is credited with saying the famous phrase, "Tora, Tora, Tora!"  To honor those that fought for the United States, there are several names to choose from: Rufus is cute for a spunky dog, Walter for a serious one and Admiral is befitting of a pup who likes to lead. You could also choose to honor the ships of Pearl Harbor by bestowing one of their names on your dog. There was the U.S.S. Arizona, U.S.S. California, U.S.S. Nevada, and several others.
