Introduction

“God save the Queen,” the Sex Pistols sang. Some consider them to be responsible for the incredible rise of the popularity of an anarchist, rebellious, loud, and opinionated genre of music we call punk, however, there is no way to pinpoint the beginnings of punk in history. But, as Stevo in the movie SLC Punk said, “Who cares who started it! It’s music!” So, if you are a fan of the loud, gritty, and most of all, energetic punk music, why not name your new pupperino after some of the greatest legends of punk?

Punk Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When you rock as hard as the punkers do, the name of your dog should match your lifestyle, right? Since punk is all about self expression and freedom from the constraints of the government, why not name your new pup Rebel? This name is especially great if your doggo has a lot of fur that you can style into a mohawk, perhaps a Shih Tzu or a Chow Chow. If you have an energetic pup who is always up to a mischief, perhaps a Golden Retriever or a Siberian Husky, you can keep it classic and name them simply – Punky!

How about a real punk rocker, maybe a lovely Border Collie or a Jack Russel Terrier lady? Well, if she is, in fact, a punk rocker, the name Sheena can suit her perfectly! It comes from the popular song by the Ramones which talks about Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, whom Joey Ramone considered to be a true rebel. Or perhaps choose a name such as Naoko, after Naoko Yamano, a member of the all-girl Japanese pop-punk band Shonen Knife? Whichever name you end up choosing, make sure to teach your new pup to rock as hard as you do and to always question the authorities. But don’t go overboard, you don’t want them to pee on your carpets, do you?
