Introduction

Political thriller shows are a huge trend in American television. Perhaps one of the most recognizable series with this theme is Scandal. Premiering on April 5, 2012 and ending on April 19, 2018, when the final episode aired, the show starred Kerry Washington as crisis management expert Olivia Pope. The show, which was created by Shonda Rhimes, highlights Pope’s firm, Olivia Pope & Associates as well as the different events and occurrences that take place in the White House. Scandal also shows how politics and power work and tests how far a person is willing to go for their own political gain. The series lasted for seven seasons and was a huge success, having garnered a number of nominations and awards from prestigious bodies such as the Emmys, SAGs and Golden Globes.

Scandal Dog Name Considerations

Naming your new dog seems easy enough on paper. However, once you actually start thinking and brainstorming, you can easily be overwhelmed by the different name options to choose from. Apart from thinking of a unique and creative name for your beloved furry friend, you also need to take a few factors into consideration.

One of the first things to take into account when choosing a name for your dog is how it sounds. As much as possible, try to avoid names that rhyme with common commands. For example, the name Bo is too similar to the command “no”. Another example is the name “Ray”, which sounds a lot like “stay”. Training relies heavily on your dog’s recognition of sounds. Hence, it is very important to not confuse your dog with similar-sounding names and commands.

Another consideration is the length of the name. You do not want to give your dog too long of a name so that they won’t have a hard time remembering it. In case you would like to choose a name inspired by the show Scandal, try to pick one that is only up to three syllables long. Should you go for a long name, make sure that you have a shortened version of it. For instance, the name “Olivia Pope” is an awesome name for a female pooch but you need to have a nickname that you can use, such as “Liv” (which also happens to be Pope’s nickname in the show).
