Introduction

Sylvester Stallone’s iconic portrayal of traumatized war veteran John Rambo in the movie First Blood, released in October of 1982 was a box office success despite poor ratings by critics. In the book that the movie is based on, Rambo commits suicide at the end, but that ending went over poorly with audiences and Rambo lived. Since that first movie, Sylvester Stallone has starred in an additional three movies in which the war-torn veteran returns to the jungle to rescue others, and John Rambo has been the subject of several comic books and two series on television, one animated and one live-action, as well as a number of video games.

Rambo Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a name for our new canine companions is an important early step in building a relationship with them. A name that is difficult for you to pronounce clearly and consistently may lead to confusion on the part of your dog while a name with sounds that your particular dog responds to may help to improve responsiveness and training time. There are several ways for fans of the Rambo movies to narrow down their selection in order to pinpoint exactly the right name for their specific animal. Some people may choose to name their dog after a character with a similar personality, dubbing a reserved and steadfast dog Trautman, a peaceable dog Sarah or Micheal, or the dog that is just a little braver than is good for them, Hamid. If the beauty of the scenery in the films moved and inspired you, names like Cascade, Salween, or Burma may appeal to you, while if you are more drawn to the military gear and technology in this movies series then you may be more likely to pick names like Huey, Torque, or Chopper. Some people may even choose to focus on names related to the making or reception of the films, selecting names like Oscar, Guinness, or even Razzie. Whichever name that you choose from this film series, it’s sure to have a powerful impact.
