For those who find entertainment or socio-political value in the use of humor or mockery to criticize the contemporary shortcomings of the government or general social norms, giving your dog a satire-inspired dog name can be a statement in itself. Some of history’s greatest minds have doubled as satirists while also maintaining their focus as playwrights, authors and even comedians, increasing the exposure and accessibility of their craft with as much taste as they do potency. And for anyone who chooses to celebrate them beyond just enjoying their creative outlets, giving your dog a satire-based name can be a fantastic option.

Satire Dog Name Considerations

Coming up with the right satire-inspired dog name can be a difficult process without focus, so much of it will hinge on your level and area of specified interest. For instance, if you’re a big fan of the current television commentary, you’ll certainly have plenty of options between the likes of Maher, Stewart, Colbert, Oliver and so on. The same holds true if you’re a fan of satire in literature, as there are names from nearly every decade from Horace to Vonnegut to choose from. Of course, this is all assuming you’ll just pick the name of your favorite.

You can always go a different direction as well. If your dog has a quirk that reflects a TV personality, such as making noises similar to those that Jon Stewart does when overly excited or happens to look like one of the dogs Gary Larson used in a Far Side panel, those will obviously be suitable selections. 

The best course of action is to consider all aspects of your favorite satirists and compare a variety of your dog’s most defining traits to them. Keeping an open mind to the process generally yields better results, so don’t hesitate to be creative. After all, that's how most successful and impactful satirists got their points across.
