Introduction

Popular culture, or more commonly referred to as pop culture, generally refers to a set of beliefs, things or trends that were pervasive and majorly talked about in the society during a certain period of time. It may also refer to any feelings or activities that were brought about by these said dominant objects. Some of the most customary categories of pop culture include entertainment (film, television, music and games), politics, fashion, sports, technology, current events and slang terms. Given the wide scope of pop culture, it’s no surprise that a lot of pet owners turn to pop culture references as inspiration for a name for their new dog.

Pop Culture Dog Name Considerations

“With great power comes great responsibility”, says Uncle Ben from the Spider-Man movie. This quote applies to a lot of things, even to something as simple as naming a new dog. While this task seems trivial, it is actually a lot of pressure on you as a pet owner. On one hand, you do not want to settle for a common, everyday name for your special pooch. On the other hand, you would not want to go overboard and choose a name that is too long and complicated for both you and your dog.

When lacking inspiration, you may consider turning to pop culture for some name ideas for your dog. The range of pop culture is so wide that you can surely find a name that you feel is right for your pup. One of the easiest ways to filter through the seemingly endless list of pop culture names is to pick out your personal favorites. For instance, if you are a fan of the television series Game of Thrones, you may focus on that and choose any name from the show that stands out. Examples of such names include “Tyrion” or “Daenerys”. Or if you are a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team, you may name your pup “Kobe” or “Shaq”, after the famous former Lakers.

Pop culture covers everything from films, sports, music, politics, history, television, fashion and a whole lot more. With all these options, you will surely find a name that is fitting for your dog.
